STUDENT DEVELOPMENT
Christian Education
In St. Stephen's Girls' College, the Christian spirit is embodied in its educational philosophy, curriculum, teacher-student relations, worship, work and recreation. Religious Education is part of the curriculum for all classes.

There are regular morning assemblies which include prayers, hymns, Bible readings, sermons and talks. Various modes of presentation are used with teachers, students, the School Chaplain and guest speakers taking part.

There are also a number of optional religious activities including Chapel service, Bible study and group discussion, a Christian Fellowship and monthly Holy Communion in accordance with the practice of Sheng Kung Hui. All members of staff and students are welcome to join and share in the religious life of the school.

Guidance & Discipline

The work of Guidance and Discipline aims to help students develop self-respect, self-discipline, positive attitudes, sense of responsibility, respect for others, and understanding of their personal growth and development. Recognizing the needs of teenagers at the stage of adolescence, the school forges partnerships with our parents, with the support of the School Social Worker. It is our belief that the creation of a supportive environment will enable students to develop positive behaviour, values, attitudes and interpersonal relationship, which in turn will facilitate their learning.

Mentorship Programme

Jointly organized by the Alumnae Association and the Students' Association, the Mentorship Programme was established in 2006. The Programme is open to all alumnae and Form 4 and 5 students. Participating as mentors and mentees, they are matched according to their careers and personal interests. Regular group activities are organized by the Alumnae Association and the Students' Association to help provide mentors and mentees with an opportunity for mutually beneficial interaction. They are also encouraged to conduct their own activities and meetings. The programme aims to foster a spirit of mutual support, and encourage a close bond between past and present students, ultimately serving to provide a vehicle through which young students will be better able to broaden their learning horizons, and acquire a deeper understanding of different careers through the sharing of experiences with their mentors.
