School Management
(1)School Organization :
The principal leads the core committee to establish the school development goals and policies. This committee holds regular meeting in every cycle to discuss the planning and implementation of school policies. Different departments and committees are responsible for managing school affairs, including the academic committee formed by various subject panel heads, guidance and discipline committee, other learning experience committee, careers guidance committee, I.T. committee and religious education committee, etc. 
(2)Incorporated Management Committee :
The School Management Committee has been set up in September 2011. It consists of representatives of the Hong Kong Council of the Church of Christ in China, parents, teachers, alumnae and independent school mangers. 
(3)School Green Policy :
Our major aim is to raise the awareness of environmental conservation among all students by organizing various workshops and seminars in school. A Green Ambassador from each class is selected to promote environmental conservation in school. Cross-curricular learning on environmental education is encouraged; we also strongly emphasize on the idea of recycling and waste separation in order to provide a clean and green learning environment. 
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1)Whole-school Language Policy :
Our School is an EMI school. Junior non-language subjects taught in Chinese take than 5% of the total lesson time. There is English-rich environment at school to arouse students' interest in learning English, which are much enhanced by the provision of drama education in English lessons for S1 and S2 students. To enable students to be biliterate and trilingual. Putonghua lessons are designed for junior forms.
(2)Learning & Teaching Strategies :
In pursuance of the Christian spirit of benevolence, the school aims to provide quality education for girls, laying equal emphasis on the moral, intellectual, physical, social, aesthetic and spiritual aspects of whole-person development so that the students can develop their full potential. Through the learning process which focuses on learning and thinking, students can acquire critical thinking, cultivate correct values and positive attitude to life. 
(3)School-based curriculum :
To realize our rationales in education and the learning needs of students, school-based curricula ae practised by Ethics, Life Education for junior forms (Life Education I focuses on personal growth and hygiene while Life Education II specializes at Liberal Studies) and Aesthetic Development for the NSS curriculum, while there are tailor-made learning materials for different subjects to provide quality learning experiences for our students. 
(4)Key Tasks :
Students' learning effectiveness is very much enhanced first in classrooms as teachers flexibly adopt suitable teaching strategies to cater for their learning diversities, while students will be using cooperative learning skills to make their classroom ieaming doubly effective. Besides, in order to broaden students earning horizons and to motivate them to learn proactively, cross-curricular earning is much emphasized through the implementation of the Cross-curricular Learning Day and many tailor-made curricula, students self-directed learning abilities will also be strengthened as they acquire e-learning skills in schoo Secondary One, enrich their learning experiences through engaging themselves in producing and enjoying educational Student TV programmes, and develop their reading-to-leam habits with the help of the School Library facilities and the Readlng Periods.
(5)Life Planing :

Our school has developed a systematic framework for life planning education for the holistic development of students. Students are provided with opportunities for understanding of themselves, career exploration and career management so that they can be more prepared to make informed choices for study and future career. With the support from such resources as the community and parents, a wide variety of activities such as talks, visits, job experience programmes and mentorship are also available and students are encouraged to participate in them. Apart from students, teachers and parents are also equipped to support students during their transition period from school to work in the form of staff development programmes, talks and workshops.

Student Support
(1)Whole School Approach to Cater for Students’ Diverse Learning Needs :

In order to cater for the individual difference in term of students' proficiency, there are respective after-school tutorial classes in Chinese, English and Mathematics for S1-3. High achievers are encouraged to participate in various competitions and enrichment programmes organized by our school and external organizations. It is hoped that students can improve their problem solving skills and widen their horizon.

(2)Curriculum Tailoring and Adaptation for Learning and Assessment :
There are two examinations in one academic year and two tests in each term. The results of the tests weigh 30% of the overall mark and those of the examinations weigh 70%. 
(3)Policy on Class Promotion/Detention :
Prior to deciding whether a student should be repeating her study a year, a deliberation will be made with the parents so as to understand the actual learning situation of the student and to rectify any learning problems identified. 
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1)Home-School Co-operation :
In order to facilitate the communication and cooperation of parents and school for the whole-person development of students, "True Light Girls' College Parent-Teacher Association" was established in 1999. The PTA holds and sponsors various activities, such as "Old Book Selling", "S.1 Form Association Inauguration Ceremony", "Annual Concert", "Reading Scheme" and parental talk. 
(2)School Ethos :
The school motto is "Thou Art the Light of the World". In pursuance of the Christian spirit of love and equality, we engage ourselves in providing quality education for girls. We encourage our students to follow the teaching of Christ, "to love thy neighbors as thyself" and develop a community spirit. A Mentoring scheme is established so student leaders can serve as role models for junior students. It is hoped that students can be trained to be more self-disciplined. Through the establishment of Form Association and the mentoring schemes for S6 and S3, S5 and S2, S4 and S1, we aim at further fostering students' collaborative and co-operative spirit so that they can establish positive relationships with others.
