Reading habit is an essential components in both language learning and life-long learning. In order to help our students to form their reading habit, a 15-minutes reading period has been put into the regular time-table every morning since 2000.

In order to enhance the effectiveness of reading period, a re-structuring is introduced in 2012. 3 to 4 periods per cycle will be assigned as reading to learn periods. The concept of self-regulated reading will be introduced. Students will be encouraged to set up target of reading based on their own careers aspiration or their fields of interest. Teachers will become facilitators to help students access various resources in reading. School library and subject panels will provide support and advice to students. Students are also encouraged to build up social network on reading. A platform will be developed to help students exhibit their founding in reading.

Reading scheme is also designed for our students every long holiday. An reading award scheme is set and a theme-park trip will be arranged to recognize students with good reading habit.
