We strive to nurture our students in becoming autonomous individuals and enable their moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic development.

Hong Chi Association is a non-profit making organization in Hong Kong dedicated to serving people with intellectual disabilities and their families. “Hong” in Chinese means “to assist”, while “Chi” refers to “the intellect”. “Hong Chi” denotes the spirit of assisting people with intellectual disabilities.

We believe:

 

●That people with intellectual disabilities have the same rights, freedoms and responsibilities as other members of the community.

●That they should be given every opportunity to develop physically, intellectually, socially, spiritually and emotionally.

●That they should be encouraged and helped to participate fully in family and community life.

●That all forms of discrimination against people with intellectual disabilities should not be tolerated.

 

 

We will:

 

●Listen to the needs and wishes of people with intellectual disabilities and their families.

●Develop them to their fullest potential through training, education and employment and assist them to live as independently as possible.

●Promote understanding and acceptance of people with intellectual disabilities.

 

We provide students with a motivated, creative and joyful learning environment. Our curriculum emphasizes the “moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic” development with an aim to (a) grow students’ potential to the full, (b) equip them with self-care and independent living skills, (c) enable them to integrate into society and live out a prosperous and meaningful life.

We devise the “Career Planning” Courses which provide vocational and pre-employment training to our students of Secondary 1 or above. It is to get them prepared for community life and the transition of further study or employment.

We strive for continuous professional development for our teaching staff in pursuit of quality education.

Our Parent-Teacher Association allows parents to have a better understanding of school affairs. It also supports parents in need and reinforce the mutual help amongst parents which manifests the spirit of cooperation between parents and the school.

We fully utilize our spatial green campus and available resources to optimize the effectiveness of learning and teaching.

We also strive to enhance the awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with intellectual disabilities in the community and encourage social inclusion.
