直資計劃、就讀啓思中學的優點、學費減免及獎學金計劃
 
Q: What is the Direct Subsidy Scheme?
 
A: “The Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) was introduced in 1991 to foster the development of a vibrant private school sector to inject diversity and choice in the education system. The aim is to provide high quality schools other than government and aided schools so that parents have greater choices in finding suitable schools for their children… DSS schools enjoy a higher degree of freedom with regard to curriculum design, student admission and collection of school fees.” (http://www.edb.gov.hk/mobile/en/edu-system/primary-secondary/applicable-to-primary-secondary/direct-subsidy-scheme/featurearticle.html)
 
問:什麼是直接資助計劃?
 
答:「直接資助計劃(直資)自一九九一年起推行,以促進私立學校的發展,為現有教育制度注入多元化及增加選擇, 目標是在官立及資助學校以外提供其他優質學校,讓家長為子女選取合適學校時有更多選擇……直資學校在課程設計、收生及收取學費上,享有較高自由度。」(http://www.edb.gov.hk/mobile/tc/edu-system/primary-secondary/applicable-to-primary-secondary/direct-subsidy-scheme/featurearticle.html)
 
Q: What are the advantages of attending a DSS school?
 
A: Students attending a DSS school have the advantage of enjoying a higher quality education by paying a reasonable school fee while being subsidised by government funding. A DSS school receives a government subsidy for each admitted student, based on the average unit cost of an Aided School place. They are free to design their own curricula according to their own educational objectives. They can charge additional fees to offer a higher quality curriculum, additional services, support measures and facilities for students. With more flexibility and resources, they can cater for the different needs of students.
 
問:就讀直資計劃的學生有甚麼得益?
 
答:就讀直資學校的學生可以合理的學費獲得更優質的教育,而同時亦可享受政府的資助。政府會以津貼學校每名學生之平均單位成本,按直資學校所收的學生人數,計算撥款資助予直資中學。直資學校可按其個別發展取向設計課程,並收取額外學費,向學生提供更高質素的課程、額外的支援服務和設備。直資學校亦享有更大的靈活性和資源,以照顧個別學生的不同需要。
 
Q: What is the advantage of studying at CSS?
 
A: We offer a high quality education, such as a world class curriculum, inquiry-based learning, small classes, exposure to large numbers of native English speaking teachers, wide choice of elective subjects, advanced facilities to support learning, excellent advice for tertiary education. We are an award-winning Inviting School, providing an exceptionally caring school ethos and have a high teacher to student ratio of 1:10. Other schools offering a similar level of quality have to charge higher fees if they do not receive a DSS subsidy.
 
問:就讀啓思中學有何優點?
 
答:學校提供超卓的教育,包括世界級的課程、探究式學習、小班教學,校內有大量以英語為母語的老師、廣泛的高中選修科目、先進的教學設備、卓越的專上教育及升學輔導。學校榮獲「啟發潛能教育學校」大獎,提供悉心關顧學生之校園文化,師生比例極低(1:10)。其他學校如要提供類同級數的優質教育,而沒有受政府直接資助,則須收取更高昂的學費。
 
Q: Does Education Bureau impose any key conditions on how DSS schools operate?
 
A: Yes. DSS schools have to offer principally a curriculum targeted at local students and prepare them for local public examinations (i.e. HKDSE).
 
DSS schools can also offer alternative curricula (for example GCSE, A Levels, IB Diploma etc). Secondly, all DSS schools are required to be non-profit making. Thirdly, they are required to provide a fee remission scheme to support those with financial need and scholarship scheme to reward talented students.
 
問:教育局會否向直資學校的運作附加任何關鍵的條件?
 
答:會。直資學校須提供主要為本地學生而設的課程,裝備他們應考本地公開試(即香港中學文憑試)。
 
直資中學亦可提供其他的課程(如英國的GCSE和高級程度預科課程 (A Levels)、國際文憑組織預科課程 (IB Diploma) 等)。此外,所有直資學校須為非牟利。它們還須提供學費減免計劃,為有經濟需要的學生提供財政支援,並提供奬學金計劃,以表揚有優秀表現的學生。
 
Q: How is the CSS Fee Remission Scheme different from other schools?
 
A: Firstly of all, a student can apply for this scheme as well as a scholarship and each will be independently assessed. Secondly, in addition to offering different percentage of school fee remission, the scheme also provides extra subsidy (e.g. textbooks, school meals, uniform, study trips & excursions, school bus, teaching support, learning equipment/instrument etc) to further support students from needy families.
 
問:啓思中學的學費減免計劃與其他學校的學費減免計劃有何分別?
 
答:首先,學生可同時申請學費減免計劃和獎學金計劃,每個計劃均會按其評審準則作獨立評估。此外,學校除了提供不同的學費減免百分比外,亦提供額外的資助(如教科書、學校午膳、校服、交流團及遊學團、校車服務、教學支援、學習設備 / 器材等),以惠及有經濟需要的學生。
 
Q: How is the CSS Scholarship Scheme different from other schools?
 
A: CSS offers two types of scholarship, general and special. Both are designed to reflect the school’s core values – respecting and developing students’ potential. The general scholarship rewards all-round students who show multi-faceted talents and achievements in 5 domains – Languages, Inquiry and Problem-solving, Creativity and the Arts, Action and Sports, Service and Leadership. The special scholarship rewards students with exceptional talent and achievement in a given field.
 
In addition to offering different percentage of school fee reduction, the scheme also provides extra resources (e.g. equipment, teaching support etc) to better prepare scholars for further success.
 
問:啓思中學的奬學金計劃與其他學校的奬學金計劃有何分別?
 
答:啓思中學提供兩類型的獎學金,名為「多元表現獎學金」及「卓越表現獎學金」。這兩類型的獎學金計劃,正正反映學校尊重及積極發展學生潛能的核心價值。「多元表現獎學金」是為表揚在五個不同範疇有多元化及優異表現的學生。該五個範疇包括語言能力、探究和解難能力、創意和藝術才華、行動和運動才能,以及服務與領袖才華。「卓越表現獎學金」的設立則是為了表揚在特定範疇表現卓越的學生而設。
 
除了提供不同的學費減免百分比外,本計劃亦會提供額外的資源(如器材、教學支援等),以讓得奬學生更好地裝備自己,邁向成功。
