In 2001, our school was awarded an Outstanding School Award in the domain of Students’ Attainment under the Outstanding School Awards (OSA) scheme in recognition of the schools’ excellence in fostering all-round student development. The assessment panel highly commended the school’s achievement in education. ‘The school puts equal emphasis on moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic domains so that students are able to have a balanced development and perform outstandingly in each domain. The school sets out 10 students’ codes which permeate subtly through the formal and hidden curriculum.’
In 2002 and 2003, the Quality Assurance Inspection (QAI) of the Education Bureau conducted inspection on the school’s self-evaluation and highly commended our efforts in self-evaluation system.
