LLCMHLSS, we teachers uphold the aim of developing the whole-being
of our students, and the program of Top Teens Camps was especially
designed to achieve this aim. The Top Teen Camps aims to help our
fresh Secondary One students adapt to the many challenges of being
in Secondary school. Secondary One students are usually filled with
curiosity and a quest for knowledge. While our classroom activities
cater for the acquisition of academic knowledge, Top Teens Camps
focus on increasing students' confidence to face various emotional
and social challenges associated with growing up and with being
in a new school. The activities of the Top Teen Camps hope to develop
in our students' life skills such as their cooperative skills, communication
skills and leadership skills.
Programme at a glance
Top Teens Camps are coordinated
and led by the Counselling Teachers, professional Social Workers
and Secondary One Class Teachers. A group of big 'brothers' and
'sisters' from our senior forms also carry the role as buddies and
instructors to the Secondary One students. By participating in the
challenging activities of hiking and trailing, students' self-confidence
is greatly increased. These activities also provide a golden opportunity
for our students' moral and religious education. Our students learn
to respect their own lives and the lives, to respect and protect
the natural environment, and to know the Creator of this environment.
The Top Teens Camp proved to be very successful and we hope the
impacts on our students are lifelong.
We teachers believe that all our students are unique
and valuable. They all possess unlimited and unexplored multi-intelligence.
They are ever-changing and growing in various aspects especially

FUN / FRIENDSHIP / FOND / FUNDAMENTALS
The activities of the Top Teens Camps are based
on our experience that our students have lots of energy, and they
learn best in a fun-situation. Our students also have a strong desire
to belong to the group. Therefore, the experiences and adventures
in the Top Teen Camps are aimed to build up mutual trust between
students, to develop the spirit of teamwork, and to nurture friendships.
Through coping with the challenges of the activities and of the
environment, students learn to cope with difficulties by helping
and depending on other people, whether these be fellow-students,
their senior form 'buddies', or teachers.
In conclusion, the Top Teens Camp definitely developed the fundamental
life skills of our Secondary One students, and judging from their
positive comments and smiles, they had a fun-time being there. The
Top Teen Camps offer much to our Secondary One students beginning
at our school.
