E. Core Strands of the Curriculum Framework

Major Strands:
The 3-level and 6-stage model is composed of the following core strands. They are:

Education for Health
Education for Health is essential to enable students to acquire the knowledge and skills to promote personal, family and community health. The second & the third levels study the relationship between positive health behaviors/lifestyle choices and the prevention of injury, illness, disease and premature death. They also learn about stress management strategies, first aid and CPR, conflict resolution and dealing with grief and loss. Each student will learn to develop his/her personal health plan. [Refer to Notes 1 for the 'Education for Health' Curriculum Framework 2008-2009]

Physical Education
The first and the second levels begin to learn the rules of all the team and dual sports. Activities may include developmental tumbling, swimming lessons and dances. Other areas of concentration include soccer, flag and touch football, tennis, volleyball, badminton, basketball, track and field, posture-diet-functional exercise, physical fitness work, simple games and relays.

The third level advances their skills and learns new sports like team handball, softball and archery. Emphasis is placed on strategy, form, teamwork, rules, sports vocabulary and the individual's responsibility for his/her own progress.

Life Skills
Each level offers a daily Life Skills class consisting of programs in the following areas: nutrition, physical education and fitness, peer, family and community relationships, collaborative and cooperative skills, and religious studies, spiritual values and ethics.

Skills for Adolescence
This strand is taught to students in all levels each year. It is designed to involve students in actively dealing with such issues as emotions, peer and family relationships, substance awareness, decision making and goal setting. Classes provide practical experiences in improving communication skills, resisting negative peer pressure, setting reasonable goals and making thoughtful decisions. The ultimate goal for this class is to help students increase their self-confidence and motivation.

Project Adventure
Lam Tai Fai College, offers students tremendous opportunities for community and personal growth. It is an integral part of the Life Skills block. With a commitment to "challenge by choice," each student has the opportunity to stretch according to his/her needs and definition, take a risk, and try something very difficult while enjoying the wonderfully sensitive support of a group of knowing peers.

Service Learning
Spiritual growth is not simply a matter of personal beliefs; it requires outreach to other people in a spirit of relationship building. Students become more aware of others' needs and differences through community service projects integrated into the curriculum at all levels.

+ Life Event Approach (LEA)
+ Life-wide Learning (LWL)

For a flexible, holistic & comprehensive implementation of the curriculum, a Life-wide & Lfe-event approach is to be adopted whenever, wherever applicable, especially when it is found possible and feasible. A systematic and life-wide approach to the health education curriculum by using school-based nutrition education curriculum as an example.

A systematic and life-wide approach to the health education curriculum by using school-based nutrition education curriculum as an example

To develop school-based nutrition education curriculum, in line with the goals of the current curriculum reform. The seven goals of the curriculum reform are enabling our students: (1) to live a healthy lifestyle; (2) to possess knowledge in the Eight Key Learning Areas; (3) to master independent learning skills; (4) to use languages in communications; (5) to develop a habit of reading; (6) to understand their national identity and commitment and (7) to recognize their roles and responsibilities. Relevant contents under the seven goals into a school-based curriculum are integrated. Reviews and evaluations have been done continuously during the process, together with plenty of communications, trainings and experience sharing with the students, parents and teachers..

Promoting in the Eight Key Learning Areas and the Four Key Tasks (moral and civic education, reading to learn, project learning, and information technology for interactive learning) makes school-based health education or nutrition education curriculum a more effective one. Teachers can flexibly use life events as the teaching strategy to introduce health education, or to promote interactive learning by stimulating students' higher-ordered thinking in related to health issues. Teachers should also consider the real health needs and the interests of the students at specific developmental stages.

An example of school-based nutrition education curriculum
A cross-subject and cross-key task nutrition education programme during English-speaking assemblies:

  • Healthy breakfast through reading 'My Pyramid' .
  • Fruit and vegetable poem reading competition.
  • A life-wide curriculum on healthy breakfast to provide practical learning experiences for the students through integrating English, Liberal Studies, Science, Physical Education, English Language and the Four Key Tasks.
  • A programme to promote eating fruits and vegetables and healthy living
  • The moral and civic education therefore becomes an important role in teaching students to treasure food resources, to learn about environmental protection, and to build up proper attitudes towards food. If such teaching can be integrated as cross-subject or cross-key-task teaching units, such as Integrated Humanities, Integrated Science, English, project learning or IT education, then students' learning would become more comprehensive and systematic.

L. INTERIM REPORT OF LIFE-WIDE LEARNING CURRICULUM --- THE SEX,HEALTH & ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION MODULES

[Part A] Formal Life-wide Learning Education Curriculum

REVIEW on Sex, Health & Environmental Education modules that were integrated into the existing curriculum (Cross-curriculum approach) [Ref : SCHOOL'S MAJOR CONCERNS 4 (a) - Devising and implementing measures through both formal and informal curricula to help promote 「 holistic education 」 in the school.]

Progress
Five sex education modules:

  • curiosity;
  • the two sexes;
  • making friends;
  • love-friendship-dating
  • sex and love

55 minutes each, were implemented in all junior secondary classes in the Life Education lessons. With well planned activities and follow-up discussion, the programmes were well received by our junior students. For other form levels, the programmes would be selected on the needs of students and implemented throughout the year.

[Part B] Cross-curricular Activities

REVIEW on Sex, Health & Environmental Education modules that were learnt by our students within school hours through cross-curricular and life-wide learning experience approach (by making use of lessons from different subject areas).

  1. 10 health professionals from the Department of Health organised a 55-minute programme on self image (我最有型) for secondary four & five classes. More sessions would be organised for our Secondary 6 (relating to the lover) and Secondary 3 (issues of love and contraception) students.
  2. A large scale growth survey program, not envisaged in September, was fully implemented for all students in 10 chosen classes (according to statistical criteria). Growth parameters (weight, height, waist size, blood pressure, body fat) of our students were monitored. . Subject teachers from the physical education section and other academic disciplines were involved. It was diagnosed that 34 students out of
    about 420 have high blood pressure. Students' parents were also informed on an
    individual basis.
  3. A mass programme that involved 10 classes of Secondary 1 and Secondary 2 students was held. The topic is the prevention of cigarette smoking. It is a joint function between the discipline committee and sex/health education committee. Multi-media techniques, in particular when they were coupled with a 「 what-if 」 style of life choice questioning, attracted our students well.

[Part C] Life-wide Learning Experience

REVIEW on Sex, Health & Environmental Education activities that were held for our students beyond school hours both within and outside our campus
[Ref : SCHOOL'S MAJOR CONCERNS 4 (a) - Devising and implementing measures through both formal and informal curricula to help promote 「 holistic education 」 in the school.
4(b) - Devising and implementing measures to help students accomplish the school yearly theme, 「 It is more blessed to give than to receive 」.

  1. A group of 21 students (from S3 to S7) was recruited to form our team of health ambassadors. About 10 of our health ambassadors co-operated with the Red Cross team members to stage a whole-day publicity campaign concerned with health care of AIDS patients (the red-ribbon campaign).
  2. Some of our students participated in an evening seminar on avian flu, organised by the Faculty of Science, the University of Hong Kong.
  3. The scheduled visit to the drugs education centre was postponed to the second term (because of the fact that 3 of our teachers in the discipline, sex/health committees participated in a training session).
  4. The broadcasting of health topics via campus TV and board display were done. However, students were reluctant in making regular change of the display board. Health reminders and posters were put on the notice board of classrooms in response to the potential hazards of avian flu. A few health messages were delivered to the whole school during morning assembly by our teachers and health ambassadors. The framework of our health ambassadors web page has been set up but with little contents. This is an area of deficiency that we have to address in the Second Term. On the other hand, the PGHLSU (Personal Growth & Healthy Lifestyle Unit) web page has maintained its hyper-linked function on issues of current interest. Regular posting was put on the school's web page 「index page」 to disseminate timely information. A presentation slide explaining the details of avian flu was uploaded to the Biology subject web page (in addition to the school webpage on Environmental Education. The project is running well during the writing up of this interim report. A number of books and education materials were either purchased or received and filed in the school library or attached to the Biology department. Regarding the proposed agenda of preparing health foods in school, it was subsequently changed to "growing cabbage and tomato by water culture 水耕法" on the pavilion garden on the 2/F and the roof of school.A Green House is being planned at the far end of the playground in the Second Term.

To summarize, looking at the changes in the school environment, participation rate of our students, and judging from their verbal and non-verbal feedback while the activities were held, teachers and health ambassadors have made 「 health awareness 」 and " a wish to know more", part of their daily life. The chairperson of the PGHLU would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to our teachers and all health ambassadors for their dedicated support for the smooth running of the events.

M. Life-wide Integrative Education for Health Curriculum evaluation

Curriculum evaluation forms a focal part of the implementation of the curriculum. To be authentic, evaluation is to be done on a cross-curricular and thematic basis. Life-wide learning activities and life events are to be used as convenient evaluation points.
While for a fuller realization of the curriculum objectives, sex, health and environmental modules are included in the formal, informal & hidden curriculum. An INTERIM REPORT OF LIFE-WIDE LEARNING CURRICULUM --- PERSONAL GROWTH. SEX, HEALTH & ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION MODULES was included for reference (Note 6)

c) How to learn and teach effectively
In order to make effective curriculum plan for the Education for Health (in fact, one of the domains in the School Extended Curriculum, a checklist to identify curriculum gaps has been used in LTFC.

Life Education (life, death, old, …)

 

In enhancing the learning and teaching effectiveness of Health Education Focus Learning Area (FLA) and promoting a culture of Education for Health in LTFC, the HE Department and the PGHLU work hand in hand on some of the key tasks listed below. They are:

R Promote a whole-school curriculum integration by using Education for Health as the base
R Review existing curriculum, identifying gaps;
R Use multiple 'entry' points (for example: engaging students in cleaning, energy conservation, healthy eating and black spots reporting campaigns);
R Employ age-specific approaches (for the lower forms --- more on beliefs, skills and actions);
R Help students making responsible/informed decision;
R Encourage students to form healthy habits;
R Go beyond 'knowledge' and target for 'action';
R Establish role models (from teachers, parents, ...)
R Capitalize current / crit ical events

d) How to assess or appraise?

Education for Health as an essential component to foster students' whole-person development, it meant that it is related to students' personal growth, habit formation and development for adolescents as well as adulthood, if it is such, it is for sure that it cannot be assessed by merely using pen and paper. As one of the domains in our school's extended curriculum, we put much emphasis on the mode of assessment, especially the kind of internalized & formative assessment leading to the expected outcome. As practiced in our school, the nature and format vary. They may include:

  • No 'pure knowledge' testing
  • Assessment for learning (e.g. feedback, reflection, …)
  • Using relevant contexts in assessment
  • Qualitative approach
  • Portfolios --- with outstanding performance or achievement in health-related learning activities.

In other words, LTFC has adopted a whole school approach for promoting Health Culture or rather Education for Health. We endeavour to:

  • Promote a healthy school culture in an organizational level, e.g. curriculum integration & a holistic extended curriculum framework;
  • Develop sustainable cultures of a compassionate & intimate campus, healthy school, environmental friendly school, a campus of life, green school;
  • Foster very close partnerships with the Centre of Health Education & Promotion (CHEP), the Health Department, the tertiary institutions and NGOs;
  • Curriculum, Ethos and Activities, a 3 in 1 approach;
  • Self-evaluative mindsets, especially promoting healthy culture and individual health services through the Health Education Resources Centre (HER Centre);
  • Cultivate a strong health promoting school concept conducive to students' whole-person development in personal qualities, positive values & attitude, individual study and career plans, genuine heart to serve and love, good citizenship, strong self and national identity.

Evaluation parameters & methods

In the course, a learning process is applied. We follow a 'ROAPR' process which is to Reflect Critically, Observe, Act, Plan and Reflect Initially. At the same time, teachers evaluate and learn following the same 'RPAOR' cycle. They focus on process and content and share their view critically. Shared understanding is attained through reflection and dialogue. Then they work collaboratively to improve the outcome.

R. Tyler (1949) viewed evaluation as the criteria for the achievement of the goals (Note 7a). To achieve the education goals in our Life-wide Integrative Education for Health curriculum, a double learning cycle for organization learning which is a quality learning cycle for evaluation and assessment is designed (Note 7b). It works for the establishment of a self-improvement evaluation model.

The Cycle runs as follows: Plan (planning the steps) -> Do (having the experience) & Learn (concluding from the experience) -> Evaluate (reviewing the experience) -> Joint Assessment (evaluate the process/experience with teachers/the community). As the implementation and outcome of this curriculum involves learning experience, life-wide learning opportunities, development of skills, cultivation of attitudes and values, so a process-oriented, formative and continuous assessment for learning should be conducted. Evidence is generated from diversified sources. It is realized that one learning outcome will facilitate another outcome, similarly one product leads to another. If viewed as such, multiple assessment modes seem necessary. What we have in mind is assessment for learning, not assessment of learning. Process and outcome form core parts of the evaluation. It covers a wide range of aspects from moral, academic, physical, aesthetic and social which means intellectual, affective and social domains.

In assessing the quality or effectiveness of the experience which may be in the forms of formal, informal and life-wide learning, experience performance indicators can be devised as a tool of assessment. Questions may develop from the 5 essences of life-wide learning experience, namely directed learning, active learning, collaborative learning, learning to learn and taking responsibility of own learning. An authentic response and feedback can be gathered which allows consistent renewal and modification of the process and the cycle. (Note 7 a & b) It is indeed a self-evaluative quality framework by linking all learning experiences. It goes back to our school's composite performance indicators pertained in the 3-level and 6 stages. Students experience are recalled, built on and extended by setting indicators on the essences of quality learning experiences in the questionnaire survey, portfolio, discussion, presentation, etc.

Form of Assessment
Forms of assessment vary a lot as to the kind of activities. Four kinds of assessment will be employed.

  • Authentic assessment
  • Performance assessment
  • Alternative assessment
  • Portfolio assessment

Method: both qualitative and quantitative
Qualitative:

  • Students' portfolio on Mission Accomplished Passport (MAP I) and My Attainment Profile (MAP II)--- our school's Personal Growth Programme and the Whole-person Development Award Scheme Record Book
  • Celebrating successes
  • Feedback from the navigator schools, community and the seed schools
  • Evaluation Reports
  • Student Performance Report
  • Student Self-assessment & Self-reflection in sharing and presentation sessions

Quantitative:

  • Number of participants in learning activities
  • Utilization of the Health Education Resources Centre
  • Number of activities organized for the Navigator & Seed Schools
  • Involvement in the Learning Carnival
  • Response from the dissemination activities

e) Summary & the Way Forward

  1. Audit the existing learning opportunities related to Education for Health.
  2. Make good use of MCE, Health-related, social life exemplars, current events and issues.
  3. Get the best from expert organizations and optimize the use of LWL opportunities.
  4. Set up a help desk, experimental station and a resource hub for curriculum development for Education for Health for the Junior Secondary and Health Management & Social Care for Senior Secondary.
  5. Extend courses, experience sharing sessions, hand-on practice for teachers and heads to acquire concepts and practical knowledge about Education for Health.
  6. Provide suitable information and resources for schools, e.g. the navigator schools and seed schools as well as other schools in HK.
  7. Incorporate Education for Health & Health Promoting concepts in school development plan. School self-evaluation system.
  8. Recognize student participation in health related activities and community services.

P. Health Education Resource Centre Floor Plan

Q. Strengths of Lam Tai Fai College in promoting Health Management and Social Care:

  1. Ever since its foundation in 2004, Lam Tai Fai College has cherished the goals of promoting a healthy school culture in secondary school. Health Education is offered as a compulsory subject in our S1 to S7 curriculum, the first secondary school in Hong Kong.
  2. The school enjoys the patronage and guidance of a very supportive School Management Committee. Our distinguished School Management Committee consists of respectable academics and professionals who receive excellent reputation in their fields and in the society. Its members support and contribute to the school by applying their professionalism to different aspects of school affairs.
  3. Professor Albert Lee (Director, The Centre for Health Education and Health Promotion, Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong; Professor and Head, Family Medicine Unit, Department of Community and Family Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong; Member of Curriculum Development Council and Chairman of Health Management & Social Care Committee, CDC – HKEAA, HKSAR ) as one of the our school managers. Professional guidance and leadership has been provided in the offering of Health Education as a subject and most important of all, in developing and implementing School Health Promoting School Programmes in LTFC. A genuine healthy school with health promoting cultures that include knowledge and concepts, values and beliefs, skills and actions being driven by curriculum oriented approach. It makes LTFC goes apart from the normal healthy schools by the inclusion of a wide range of health promoting activities and programmes.
  4. Since the school plays a pivotal role in Health Education, we have possessed a team of very professional teaching force in Health Education. With the advent of NSSC and the offering of a new subject, Health Management & Social Care, Professor Albert Lee, our School Manager, was interviewed by Mingpao (January 8, 2008) on LTFC as the Flagship for Health Education in the Territory & pioneering role in offering HMSC (New NSS subject).
    The news reports ran:

It was reported that Lam Tai Fai College was the first school offering a pioneering course in Health Education at secondary level. Our School Manager, Professor Albert Lee, as a Member of Curriculum Development Council and Chairman of Health Management & Social Care Committee, CDC – HKEAA, HKSAR explained the strength of LTFC in the existing balanced, diversified and forward-looking curriculum framework. Professor Lee went further onto promoting healthy school culture through the healthy schools project launched by the Director, The Centre for Health Education and Health Promotion, Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. It was emphasized a school-based Health Education helps foster students' whole-person development. It enhances students' capacity in meeting adversity and further stretching their potentials. Health Education thus forms an integral part of students' all-round development and character formation. When going up to senior secondary school, students can opt for Health Management & Social Care (HMSC). It also prepares students for future career in the field of medical and health care.

  1. At the same time, a truly school-based, student-centered, innovative and comprehensive Health Education curriculum was offered and will continue to offer in LTFC. As a school which had offered the subject ever since its establishment (in 2004), the school enjoys an extensive links with the community which is conducive to the building of a healthy community (2009-2010) and good links with the community. Very intimate partnership with the Centre for Health Education and Health Promotion (CHEP) has been forged. Actions in the following areas like building healthy public policy, create supportive environments, strengthen community action, develop personal skills and reorient health services are fully taken care of with very thorough planning at the level of the SMC, the School Development Steering Committee as well as with all the staff duly informed.
  2. The school has rich experience in running a school-based Health Education in the secondary school curriculum. We will continue to take the need in supporting our counterparts in the promotion of Health cultures in schools and in the delivery of the Education for Health curriculum and of course, the Health Management & Social Care (HSMS) in the Diploma Examination.
  3. Education for Health has been put as one of the domains in the school's whole-person development framework. A school-based Life-wide Integrative Extended Curriculum moves towards the realization of a Life-long and Life-wide Sustainable Learning Model.
