Gifted Education and Student Development Committee - Introduction

Gifted Education Centre Opening Ceremony

Our School's Gifted Education Centre was officially set up on 8th September 2012. We were honoured to have Mr Chan Pui Tin, Chief Curriculum Development Officer of the Gifted Education Section at the Curriculum Development Institute, Education Bureau as our guest of honour.


The Gifted Education Centre is a platform in the school that provides various services for different stakeholders of the school (including students, teachers and parents). For students, the Centre provides them with suitable courses to strengthen them in both academic and non-academic subjects. Through versatile teaching methods and under a flexible learning environment, students can learn efficiently and develop their potentials. For teachers, the Centre provides professional training regarding knowledge and skills needed in delivering gifted education. They can acquire effective teaching strategies to care for students' learning needs and cultivate students with gifted abilities. For parents, the Centre organises parents' talks and workshops to help them understand what gifted education is and acquire relevant skills to nurture their children. Also, the Centre provides updated information on gifted education for parents, so that the school and parents can work together to nurture children. For the community, the Centre organises gifted education programmes for kindergarten students such as leadership training courses, upholding the school's spirit of serving the community.

Principles for Implementation
  1. Nurturing multiple intelligences is a fundamental goal of quality basic education and should be the mission of all schools;
  2. Gifted education should be part of quality education. The needs of gifted students, like their less able counterparts, should basically be met in their own school;
  3. A broad definition using multiple intelligences should be adopted;
  4. Exploring students' thinking and creativity abilities and social skills should be the foci of gifted education;
  5. Schools should provide sequential and multiple educational activities to gifted students at different levels;
  6. To compile resources collected from educational parties/bodies as support to schools.

    B: To differentiate teaching through appropriate grouping of students to meet the different needs of the groups with enrichment and extension of curriculum across all subjects in regular classrooms.

    D: To conduct pull-out programme in specific areas (e.g. Maths, Visual Arts, etc.) outside the regular classroom to allow systematic training for students with outstanding performance in specific domains.
