Igniting the passion for knowledge
DHW offers a diversified curriculum and abundant learning opportunities to prepare students to achieve their future career goals. More importantly, these meaningful learning opportunities allow students to apply their skills and knowledge and to discover more. To cater for diverse learning needs, after-school academic support such as homework tutorials and enhancement classes for different subjects are provided. Each year, we organize several learning-themed weeks such as STREAM Week, English Week, Chinese Week and Reading Week, etc. to promote a love of learning.
Nurturing student growth
The Student Support Division aims to provide students all-rounded pastoral care. The Discipline and Guidance Committee is dedicated to enhance the wellbeing of our students by giving them timely and appropriate support and guidance. They work closely with experienced social workers and Educational Psychologists to cater for the needs of students with a range of strategies including individual counselling, life skills building and partnering with parents etc. While the Career Guidance Committee assists students with their career and life development, the Moral and Civic Education Committee and the Co-curricular Activities Committee foster value education and whole person development.
With reading being the foundation, the school-based STREAM education puts emphasis on developing students’ self-learning attitude, creative thinking and problem-solving abilities, in which students integrate knowledge of different domains through learning in a cross-disciplinary mode. Apart from taking part in the after-class STEM activities, S1 – S3 students are tasked with collaborative projects such as making 4WD cars, musical instruments and holographic animation in their formal curriculums. Our students have actively participated in various STEM-related competitions to demonstrate their innovative minds and problem-solving skills, in which they have achieved outstanding results and become more interested in the STEM discipline and the recent trends of technological development.
