Task Force on Review of School Curriculum convenes first meeting


Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      The Task Force on Review of School Curriculum convened its first meeting today (December 6) to discuss its terms of reference and work plan.

     The main scope of work to be undertaken by the Task Force is to holistically review the primary and secondary curricula and to make directional recommendations on the following:
 
  1. how the school curricula at primary and secondary levels can be rigorous and forward-looking in enhancing students' capacity to learn and instill in them the values and qualities desired for students of the 21st century to meet future challenges as well as the needs of society;
  2. how to better cater for students' diverse abilities, interests, needs and aspirations;
  3. how to optimise the curriculum in creating space and opportunities for students' whole-person development; and
  4. how to better articulate learning at the primary and secondary levels.

     The Task Force will hold further meetings to discuss specific issues regarding the review of the primary and secondary curricula, and extensively engage key stakeholders to collect their views and suggestions. The Task Force will be in operation for about two years to make directional recommendations to the Government on the school curriculum.
