Mr. SHUM Lap-pingPrincipal, Fortress Hill Methodist Secondary School
The Fortress Hill Methodist Secondary School is the only government-aided mainstream Christian secondary school in Hong Kong serving 100% SEN students. The School sets up 23 theme-based learning space to enhance students' self-efficacy, communication skills and generic skills so as to facilitate their transition from school-to-work. With the emphasis on "strength-based Learning", the School recently co-creates an innovative "Train-themed Classroom" with MTR to enrich their social skills and careers exploration.
In addition to arousing awareness of the public on contributing to an Inclusive Society, "Train-themed Classroom" is a learning space set up with various railway elements, which imitates a real MTR compartment where students will be trained of useful skill set in life through a series of "Train" themed educational programmes inside and outside the classroom, with a view to enhancing students' learning motivation riding on their interests in MTR.
The School also actively carries out inter-disciplinary collaborations among different stakeholders and professionals to unleash SEN students' potential and co-create more opportunities for them.
