Pentecostal school emphasizes to enhance career planning and multiple pathways and nurture students' self-directed abilities. The school implemented 'Career and Life Planning', different life planning activities both outside and inside classes are organized to enable students to gain a better understanding of the students themselves. To prepare the students for university studies, the students are equipped with interview skills and provided with different seminars to establish their goals in studies.

Yan Oi Tong Tin Ka Ping Secondary School

Dr. Tin Ka Ping founded the school in 1987. The ratio of teachers with postgraduate qualifications is one of the highest among all secondary schools in Hong Kong. Currently, around 50% of our teaching staff is holders of Master / Doctoral Degrees.

The School Motto is lucidly set out, and manifests consistently in the School's policies and ethos.

"One Sport One Art for One Student" Program encourages students to broaden their horizons by pursuing their interests in non-academic areas.

The School environment is caring and supportive, fostering a close relationship among teachers and students.

It pays a lot of attention to the discipline and behaviour of students and has been actively collaborating with partners in the community. Activities have been organized in collaboration with community organizations, while some students have initiated academic activities in the community to promote academic development within the district.

Po Leung Kuk Celine Ho Yam Tong College

Established in 2001, it was the thirteenth secondary school to open in Po Leung Kuk. We adhere to the mission and vision of Po Leung Kuk, and attach great importance to students’ balanced learning including moral, intellectual, physical, communal and aesthetic education, and nurture students to develop nobleness and a correct outlook of life.

The mission is to enhance students’ interest in learning and unearth their potential by means of inspiration. Our school’s motto is love, respect, diligence and integrity; it is hoped that students can learn to respect and strive for excellence. Moreover, the College will keep close contact with parents to ensure their child grows happily.

The College nurtures students to become trilingual and biliterate individuals equipped with high order thinking ability and presentation skills.
