Careers Guidance Club
The Careers Club assists the Careers and Guidance Team in promoting and organizing a wide variety of careers programmes.
The Team aims to help students understand their own interests, abilities, needs and aspirations so as to make wiser choices in further studies, vocational training and careers planning. It also strives to provide students, parents and teachers with the most up-to-date information about careers and further studies.
1. Recruitment of Committee Members:
- All committee members are recruited by careers teachers on a selective basis.

Our alumni have continuously given significant contributions to the alma mater by sharing their precious knowledge and work experience in different fields through Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) talks, Careers Day, F. 5 and 6 alumni sharing sessions, etc. They play an important role in developing students’ values, knowledge, skills and attitude towards work.
Careers-related Activities for F.4 and F.5 Students
The Careers and Guidance Team work with different business organisations to help senior form students to learn more about the workplace. One of the organisations includes the Hong Kong and China Gas Company Limited (Towngas) to join a business-school programme entitled ‘Career in a Nutshell’. It offered a series of programmes including visits, voluntary services, job-shadowing, talks and games for students to acquire practical and hands-on career-related knowledge in Towngas.
