Other Learning Experiences

Under the NSS Curriculum, OLE is one of the three components that complement the core and elective subjects (including Applied Learning courses) for the whole-person development of students. Building on the foundation of the five Essential Learning Experiences in the Basic Education (Primary 1 - Secondary 3), school will offer students a range of OLE opportunities encouraging them to participate in the five areas of OLE, namely Moral and Civic EducationCommunity ServiceCareer-related ExperiencesAesthetic Development and Physical Development.

Further to the implementation of the first 3-year cohort of the New Senior Secondary (NSS) Curriculum and the completion of the first Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) Examination in 2012, the Education Bureau, the Curriculum Development Council (CDC), and the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA) have jointly conducted the New Academic Structure (NAS) review. The broad objective of the review is to assess the implementation and policy outcomes of the NAS and identify the strengths, good practices as well as the challenges ahead with a view to making effective recommendations for the continual improvement of the NSS curriculum and assessment in future. 

In order to achieve the learning objectives of OLE – providing students with a broad and balanced curriculum with diverse learning experiences to foster whole-person development as well as respect the choice of the majority of schools and their school-based development, the suggested time allocation of OLE is adjusted to 10 to 15% of the total lesson time for the continual enhancement of a balanced development of students through the five areas of OLE (Moral and Civic Education, Community Service, Career-related Experiences, Aesthetic Development and Physical Development).
