The tasks of gifted education are identifying and developing the gifts and talents of students in systematic and directional ways and providing them with chances of getting relevant education which helps them realize their own potential with flexible teaching methods and environment.
As shown in our motto “All are educable”, we believe that all individuals are born with their own gifts and talents. Through quality formal lessons, tailored training and sufficient chances, we devote ourselves to cultivating students’ multiple abilities such as creative thinking, higher-order thinking and critical thinking.
A：Integrating the three core elements of gifted education, i.e. higher-order thinking, creativity and personal-social competence, into the curriculum of regular classrooms for all students.
B：Enriching and extending the curriculum of specific subjects, and differentiating teaching through appropriate grouping of students to meet the different needs of the groups in regular classrooms.
C：Conducting pull-out programmes of generic nature outside the regular classrooms (e.g. creativity training, leadership training, etc.)
D：Conducting pull-out programme in specific areas (e.g. Maths, Arts, etc.) outside the regular classroom.
E：Offering challenging opportunities in curriculum enrichment and extension to specially gifted students recommended by schools through services provided by or coordinated with tertiary educational institutions or other educational institutions/organizations commissioned by EDB Gifted Education Section and the Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education.
4A Lai Chin Yan (2023-2024)
I am honored to receive the Stars in Academic Award from the Comprehensive Scholarship Scheme. I am planning to use my vouchers to further enhance my academic performances.
Aside from the Stars in Academic award, the school also provides for us in multiple ways. For example, the great support that I received from my teachers when I first entered Man Kwan Pak Kau College. It allowed me to immerse in my new school life, put my academic life on track and receive good grades.
When I was deciding which electives to take, I was hoping to study Physics, Biology and Chemistry. However, the curriculum arrangement has limitation that I can’t take all three of them. I was deeply frustrated. Thus, I expressed my ideas and thoughts to the school. The principal listened to my woes and seek for teachers’ opinions. After understanding the feasibilities of my idea, another Biology class was opened for me.
I am grateful for the school, our principal, and teachers for providing support and letting me fulfill my dreams.
