The Cx Programme is designed to supplement Hong Kong students’ heavily academic focussed school life. Our programme aims to develop students’ Higher Order Thinking Skills. These include: Analysing, where students use their own judgment to begin analysing the knowledge they have learned while beginning to understand the underlying structure to knowledge and also distinguish between fact and opinion; Evaluating, where students make judgments about the value of ideas, items, materials, and more; Creativity, and the ability to think of creative solutions to problems and tasks. These together with a multitude of other skills, including communication, cooperation, critical thinking, compassion, courage and curiosity, will all help towards making our students well rounded and equipped to deal with everything life has to offer as well as encouraging students to become lifelong learners and internationally minded.
