D Curriculum, HKDSE and IBDP
 
課程、香港中學文憑試及國際文憑組織預科項目
 
Q: What is so unique about the CSS curriculum?
 
Our broad and balanced curriculum is designed to meet the interests, aspirations and abilities of our students.
 
The curriculum is taught through eight key learning faculties. In the lower school (F1 & F2), students are offered a diverse range of age-appropriate learning experiences designed to stimulate and their enthusiasm in learning. In the middle school (F3 & F4), the curriculum is designed to further encourage proactive and independent learning. Students make choices from a flexible and wide range of elective subjects to further their different learning interests. In the upper school (F5 & F6), students specialise in fewer subjects closely related to their higher education and career aspirations.
 
We offer the HKDSE and the IB Diploma as two pathways for students to progress towards tertiary education. In each of the two diplomas offered there are sufficient numbers of elective subjects that students can choose from. Learning groups in F5 and F6 are not more than 20 students.
 
問:啓思中學的課程有何獨特之處?
 
答:啓思中學的課程廣泛而均衡,課程設計迎合學生的興趣、志向和能力。
 
學校透過八個主要學習科組,教授各科的課程。學校為低年級學部(中一及中二)提供各式各樣、切合學生年齡的學習經歷,以吸引和激發他們對學習熱誠。而於中年級學部(中三及中四),課程的設計旨在進一步鼓勵學生主動和獨立學習。至於高年級學部(中五及中六),學生則專注於較少數量的科目,而這些科目都與他們的專上教育和職業志向有著的密切關係。
 
我們提供香港中學文憑試 (HKDSE) 和國際文憑組織預科項目文憑試 (IB Diploma)的課程,讓學生可通過兩種不同的途徑,向專上教育之路邁進。啓思中學有充足的選修科目,供學生於兩個文憑試課程中選修。中五及中六級的學習小組,每組人數不多於二十人。
 
Q: How does the CSS curriculum benefit its students?
 
A: Under the Hong Kong education reform policy, the new HK secondary curriculum aims at all-rounded education and balanced development of students. It emphasizes language & communication skills, creative thinking & independent learning, responsibility & citizenship as well as acquisition of knowledge through the 8 key learning areas etc. The IB Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) includes similar educational objectives. In order to deliver the new Hong Kong curriculum more effectively, CSS, as an IB World School, actively uses the pedagogy of the IB. Furthermore, we are able to access the excellent teacher training and resources of the IB organisation.
 
In our lower forms, students receive a broad and balanced education through the 8 key learning areas. In addition, CSS’s uniquely designed curriculum places much emphasis on interdisciplinary and inquiry based learning, research skills & information literacy, critical and creative thinking, communication and collaboration skills, civil responsibilities and international mindedness, as well as development of students’ broad & positive outlook in life. These generic skills & personal qualities are most important for students to acquire for their future learning, career and life in the 21st century.
 
Our curriculum therefore provides our students with a strong foundation and prepares them to do well in the HKDSE and the IB Diploma exams as well as further studies at university level.
 
問:啓思中學的課程如何讓學生得益?
 
答:在香港教育改革政策下,香港新中學課程的目標是讓學生接受全人教育和均衡發展。課程著重培養學生的語言及溝通技巧、創意思維及獨立學習技巧、個人責任和公民權利及義務,以及透過八個學習領域吸取廣闊的知識等。國際文憑組織中學項目亦涵括相似的教育目標。作為國際文憑組織世界學校 (IB World School) ,啓思中學積極運用國際文憑組織 (IB) 的教學法,以及該組織的卓越教師培訓和教學資源,以更有效地推行香港新中學課程。
 
在本校低年級的課程中,學生通過八個學習領域,獲取範疇廣濶而均衡的教育。此外,我們獨特設計的課程,非常著重跨學科和探究式學習,培養學生的研究技巧與資訊科技的能力、批判性思考與創意思維、溝通與協作能力、公民責任和國際視野,以及發展其廣闊而積極的人生觀。這些共通能力和個人素質,對於廿一世紀學生的未來學習、就業和生活極為重要。
 
我們的課程為學生奠定穏健的基礎,為他們應付香港中學文憑試 (HKDSE) 或國際文憑預科試 (IBDP),以及未來升讀大學,作最好的準備。
 
Q Why does CSS offer the HKDSE and the IB Diploma programmes?
 
A: As a DSS school, CSS principally offer the HKNSSC and prepare its students for the HKDSE exams. The school offers the IB DP as an alternative option.
 
The school operates the two Diplomas because they are differently designed for students with different aptitudes & aspirations. Students in the school benefit from a common curriculum from Form 1 to Form 4. It provides them with a strong academic foundation and ample opportunity to develop as positive, responsible and effective all-round learners. At Form 4, when they would have the necessary maturity to consider their elective subjects and future tertiary education, the school will consult students & parents before the school decides which Diploma is to be offered to them.
 
問:為什麼啓思中學同時提供香港中學文憑試 (HKDSE) 和國際文憑組織預科項目課程 (IBDP)?
 
答:作為一所直接資助中學,在香港特區政府教育局政策下,啓思中學須主要為學生提供香港新高中課程,並為他們準備應考香港中學文憑試。但是,教育局亦允許本校同時提供國際文憑組織預科項(IBDP) 的課程。
 
啓思中學推行兩個文憑試課程,是基於這兩個文憑試設計各有不同,適合不同志向和能力的學生。本校學生於中一至中四時均修讀同一個課程,奠定穩固的學業基礎,並有大量的機會,以發展為積極、富負責任感、有效,並且有全面發展的學生。當學生達到中四階段,心智上較成熟,開始考慮選擇選修科目以及未來升學時,學校會先諮詢學生及家長意見,然後決定向學生提供哪個文憑試課程給予學生修讀。
 
Q What are the key similarities and differences between the HKDSE and the IBDP at CSS?
 
A: At our school, both Diplomas have enabled students to successfully enter good universities locally and overseas.
 
In HKDSE, students must study 4 compulsory core subjects - English, Chinese, Mathematics and Liberal Studies, which includes an Independent Enquiry Study project (IES). They also follow a programme of Other Learning Experiences (OLE). In addition, our HKDSE students can choose up to three from 12 elective subjects offered, including 3 sciences, 3 technologies, 2 arts and 4 humanities.
 
In the IBDP, students must study 6 subjects - 2 languages, Mathematics, a science subject, a humanities subject and a 6th subject. This 6th subject could be an Art subject, or another science, humanities or language. Among the 6 subjects, students must study 3 at Higher Level (HL) and 3 at Standard Level (SL). In addition, they also study Theory of Knowledge (TOK), write an Extended Essay (EE) and complete a programme of Creativity, Action & Service (CAS). At CSS, we offer 3 languages, 5 sciences, 3 arts and 4 humanities.
 
問:啓思中學的香港中學文憑試 (HKDSE) 與國際文憑組織預科項目 (IBDP) 課程,有哪些主要的相同和相異之處?
 
答:在啓思中學,兩個文憑試都讓本校學生成功考進本地及世界的優秀大學。
 
修讀香港中學文憑試的學生,必須修讀四科核心科目,即英文、中文、數學和通識科。通識科設有獨立專題探究習作。修讀香港中學文憑試的學生,亦須參加「其他學習經歷」課程項目。此外,啓思中學的HKDSE學生可從多達12科的選修科目,包括3個科學科、3個科技科、2個藝術科和4個人文科中,選讀最多三科。
 
修讀國際文憑組織預科項目的學生,必須修讀六個科目,計有兩科語文科、數學、一科科學科目、一科人文學科目,以及第六個科目。此第六科目可以為藝術科,或科學、人文或語文科目。這六個修讀科目當中,三個學科須為高級程度科目(Higher Level Subjects),另外三個學科則為標準程度 (Standard Level Subjects)。此外,學生亦須修讀知識論(Theory of Knowledge),撰寫一篇專題論文(Extended Essay),並完成創意、行動與服務項目。啓思中學提供3個語文科、5個科學科、3個藝術科和4個人文科,給IBDP學生選擇。
 
Q: What types of CSS students are suited to follow the IBDP?
 
A: In order to be successful in obtaining the IBDP Diploma, students are expected to possess certain attributes – strong all-round academic ability, especially in languages; very disciplined in managing study time and meeting deadlines; strong critical thinking and research skills; persistence & commitment in handling academic challenges, especially in Higher Level (HL) subjects.
 
The IBDP requires students to study 6 subjects often with substantial coursework, plus Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Extended Essay (EE) and Creativity Action and Service (CAS) . This heavy workload is all compulsory. Furthermore, 3 Higher Level subjects combined are very challenging. From our experience, to be successful in Higher Level subjects, we expect CSS students to achieve at least a level 5 in those respective subjects at MYP levels.
 
In the IBDP, students must study at least one language as a first language level, which is literature-based. The critical study of a large number of literary works (in Chinese or English at CSS) may be too challenging for some students.
 
IBDP students must study at least one science and one humanities subject. Students who do not wish to study any science, or any humanities subject, will not meet the IBDP’s requirement.
 
To achieve the IB Diploma, a student must fulfil a large number of specific requirements, such as minimum grades in HL and SL subjects, overall score of 24 points, passing EE and TOK and completing CAS etc, failing which would result in the student not able to obtain the Diploma at all.
 
問:啓思中學哪類型的學生適合修讀國際文憑組織預科項目 (IBDP)?
 
答:要成功獲取國際文憑組織預科項目 (IBDP) 之證書,學生必須擁有一定的素質,包括優良而全面的學術能力,特別是優秀的語文能力。他們亦必須非常自律,能良好地管理他們的學習時間,於限期前完成習作。學生亦要具備超卓的批判思維、研究能力及技巧,並能持續和投入地面對和處理學業上的挑戰,特別應付高級程度 (HL) 科目的挑戰。
 
IBDP要求學生修讀六個科目,並須經常性地完成大量的課業,以及修讀知識論 (TOK),撰寫一篇專題論文(EE),並完成創意、行動與服務項目 (CAS)。這些課業全都屬必修部分,而同時修讀三個高級程度科目亦極富挑戰性。
 
根據經驗, IBDP 的三個高級程度 (HL) 科目中取得成功,學校要求學生能於中學項目 (MYP) 同樣的三個科目中,取得至少五級的成績。
 
IBDP學生,在兩科必修的語文科目中,至少一科須為第一語文程度,此語文科目是以文學為本。對一些學生來說,要深入研讀及批判大量的文學作品(中文或英文)或會感到吃力。
 
IBDP要求學生須同時修讀最少一科科學科以及一科人文學科。學生如不欲修讀任何科學或人文科,並不符合IBDP的要求。
 
要取得IBDP的預科文憑,學生必須符合多樣的指定要求,如於高級程度和標準程度的各個科目達到某個最低的分數要求,而整體總成績最少達24分,撰寫的論文及研究題目須取得最少合格的成績,並滿足創意、行動與服務項目(CAS) 的各種要求等。如未能達到以上的最低要求,學生是不能取得IBDP的預科文憑。
 
Q: What types of CSS students are suited to follow the HKDSE?
 
A: Almost all CSS students are suited to follow the HKDSE (except for example, those overseas-returned Chinese students who find the Chinese language examination too challenging). HKDSE offers more flexibility in numbers and combinations of elective subjects, because it is designed for a wider spectrum of students with different aptitudes and interests. In particular, the HKDSE permits students to choose any combination of electives without restriction. This offers the opportunity for both all-rounders as well as those with focused interests (e.g. only sciences, only arts) to be successful.
 
問:啓思中學哪類型的學生適合修讀香港中學文憑試 (HKDSE)?
 
答: 絶大部分的啓思學生都適合修讀HKDSE(除了如一些由海外回港,中文考試對他們來說太艱深的華裔學生外)。HKDSE於選修科的數目及組合方面有更大的靈活性,因為HKDSE是為能力和興趣差異較廣闊的學生人口而設計。HKDSE容許學生無限制地選讀任何組合的選修科目,這樣可讓有全面發展的學生,或那些擬專注某些興趣科目(例如只修讀科學、只修讀藝術)的學生,均有機會獲取良好的成績。
 
Q: What are the benefits of studying HKDSE at CSS?
 
A: We offer students an effective English language learning environment through our large number of native English speaking teachers. Students learn interactively in small classes and receive close individual support & supervision from highly caring and effective teachers. The school offers as many as 12 elective subjects - Music, Design & applied technology, Visual arts, Technology & living (food) / Technology and Living – (Food Science and Technology), Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Business, accounting & financial studies (BAFS), Economics, History, Geography and Information & communication technology (ICT). Our Higher Education advisory team has an excellent track record in maximizing students’ prospects to gain entry to good universities and colleges locally and overseas.
 
問:在啓思中學修讀香港中學文憑試有何好處?
 
答:學校有大量以英語為母語的教師,為學生提供卓越而有效的英語學習環境。學生在小班教學環境中互動學習,獲得富愛心而高效能的教師所提供的緊密支援和關顧。學校更提供多達12個選修科目,包括音樂、設計與應用科技、視覺藝術、科技與生活(食品科學與科技)、生物、化學、物理、企業、會計與財務概論、經濟、歷史、地理,以及資訊及通訊科技科。而我們的專上教育輔導團隊亦擁有卓越往績,幫助學生擴大升讀本地及海外優秀大學和專上院校的機會。
 
Q: Is there a limit of IBDP places offered by CSS at the F.5 & 6 level and why?
 
A: The Education Bureau policy requires DSS schools to principally offer the local curriculum and preparing students to study for the HKDSE. Therefore, DSS schools including CSS must restrict students opting for the IBDP to less than half.
 
問:啓思中學的中五及中六級國際文憑組織預科項目 (IBDP) 是否設有學額限制?為什麼?
 
答:教育局的政策要求直資學校須提供主要為本地學生而設的課程,裝備他們應考香港中學文憑試。因此,直資學校(包括啓思中學)須限制少於一半的學生修讀IBDP。
 
Q: How does CSS determine which student can be admitted to the IBDP?
 
A: The school has developed and shared a set of criteria with existing parents detailing when and how it will decide which students will be admitted to follow the IBDP option. In this respect, the school tracks the progress of students throughout their earlier years at CSS, and parents are given feedback through teacher-student-parent conferences in addition to detailed school reports. When students have reached an appropriate level of maturity in Form 4 and have chosen their elective subjects according to their interests, aptitude, tertiary education and career aspirations, the school will consult students and parents, and make a final decision on who will continue with the HKDSE and who will be admitted into the IBDP option.
 
問:啓思中學怎樣決定哪些學生可修讀國際文憑組織預科項目 (IBDP)?
 
答:學校已制定選修IBDP項目的準則,並向家長介紹,說明學校怎樣和何時決定哪個學生可修讀IBDP。為讓家長了解學生是否適合修讀IBDP, 學校自學生入讀本校起,就會密切跟進學生在學校的發展進程,同時透過定期的「教師 - 學生 - 家長」三方會議,以及學生的成績表,給予回饋意見,讓家長了解學生的進度。當學生達到中四,心智上較為成熟,開始根據自己的興趣、能力、未來升學目標及職業志向考慮選擇選修科目時,學校便會諮詢學生及家長,然後才決定學生是否適合修讀IBDP。

When students have reached an appropriate level of maturity in Form 4 and have chosen their elective subjects according to their interests, aptitude, tertiary education and career aspirations, the school will consult students and parents, and make a final decision on who will continue with the HKDSE and who will be admitted into the IBDP option. 

 

問:啓思中學怎樣決定哪些學生可修讀國際文憑組織預科項目 (IBDP)?

答:學校已制定選修IBDP項目的準則,並向家長介紹,說明學校怎樣和何時決定哪個學生可修讀IBDP。為讓家長了解學生是否適合修讀IBDP, 學校自學生入讀本校起,就會密切跟進學生在學校的發展進程,同時透過定期的「教師 - 學生 - 家長」三方會議,以及學生的成績表,給予回饋意見,讓家長了解學生的進度。當學生達到中四,心智上較為成熟,開始根據自己的興趣、能力、未來升學目標及職業志向考慮選擇選修科目時,學校便會諮詢學生及家長,然後才決定學生是否適合修讀IBDP。
