to investigate
how the school becomes a cradle for elite athletes

To Hong Kong people, Asian Games 2010 ended in applauses and celebrations. The outstanding results of Hong Kong representatives impressed many of us, with the scenes of victory and glorious moments of medal presentation encouraging many local athletes. To learn better about how our successful athletes are nurtured in schools, ATV's News Magazine (時事追擊) selected our school to tell the story. They visited us on 15th-16th November to explore the way LTFC develops students' sport talents and sustains their sport development through helping them to balance between sports and studies.

The crew of ATV interviewed LTFC to identify the approach and commitment of the school in nurturing sport stars of the future. They also tell the story as how elite athletes grow up in the unique environment of the school, with the kind of support and care that they cannot find elsewhere.

To enhance all-rounded development as well as fully develop individual's potentials of students, Lam Tai Fai College endeavors to promote an innovative and broadening curriculum with special emphasis on their four Focused Learning Areas. Among which, sport promotion and sport education have already distinguished the school from general grammar schools. With the school's ideology in catering for diversity and enhancing individual development, the junior secondary PE lessons are scheduled at same time blocks for each level. Students are grouped according to their interests, ability, strengthens and weaknesses. Apart from regular lessons, intensive and comprehensive trainings are conducted by professional coaches so as to provide systematic training to school teams. As a school that promotes healthy lifestyle, the school strengthens students' self-confidence and power of self-actualization through encouraging active participation in sport activities. The newly open self-financed Indoor Swimming Pool and standard-sized Multi-sport Gymnasium can best describe the school's enthusiasm and determination for sport promotion.
