Jockey Club Ti-I College (TIC or JCTIC, Chinese: 賽馬會體藝中學, Demonym: Ti-Ian) is a secondary school in Fo Tan, Hong Kong. The setting up of Ti-I College ('Ti-I' pronounced as 'tee yee'), which is not only focused on normal academic curriculum, but also aimed to develop students' potential of visual arts and sports, was proposed by Sir Edward Youde, the late governor of Hong Kong.
The school curriculum uses English as the medium of instruction in all subjects, with the exception of Chinese language and Chinese History.
The idea of founding the school originated with the late governor, Sir Edward Youde. He proposed the setting up of a secondary school in Hong Kong which would not only emphasize academic performance but also provide an opportunity to develop students' potential in sports and the visual arts.
In November 1985, the chief secretary came to an agreement with the Hong Kong Jockey Club (the then Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club) that such a school would be built in Sha Tin. A total funding of HK$84 million Hong Kong dollars was established by the RHKJC and the government.
The Education Department invited professionals and educators to form the School Management Board. The school began its operation in September 1989 and is now fully operational.
Etymologies and logo
The Chinese name of the college, "賽馬會體藝中學", translates literally as "Jockey Club Sports – Arts College". "體" refers to Sports (體育) and "藝" refers to Arts (藝術). This name reflects how the founding of the college emphasises sport and art.
The school logo was designed by Hong Kong designer Kan Tai Keung. To match the college's ambition to the provide education in the visual arts and sports, the logo highlights the two main elements: an art palette and an athlete.
The art palette represents their focus on the visual arts. The running posture of an athlete, which is reshaped as the word Ti, represents their passion to sports.
School motto and song
- Sports: sportsmanship, healthy bodies
- Humanity: humane, kind, showing sympathy, understanding
- Art: artistic, creative, appreciative to things in life
- Wisdom: analytical power, independent thinking, good judgement
Jockey Club Ti-I College is the only secondary school in Hong Kong that has full autonomy in the Secondary School Places Allocation (SSPA) for Form 1 student intake. This means the college can recruit students in Hong Kong with no restriction on districts. For Primary 6 students who are participating in the SSPA System, applying for the college does not take up the two quotas of discretionary application in the system.
Choice for an elective
The college is the first of its kind in Hong Kong where students can choose between specialising in visual arts or sports when they are admitted. The idea is to develop students' all-around abilities and interests besides academic excellence. The student has more lessons for their selected stream.
The college has seven special art rooms for students including: the Drawing and Printing Room, Sculpture Room, Graphic Design Room, Ceramics Room, Photography Room, Print-making Room and the Art Gallery.
For physical education, the college has three tennis courts, two basketball courts, a sports science and fitness centre, a gymnasium, a fitness room and a roof top basketball court.
An accessible lift and accessible toilets are also available for students with special needs.
Jockey Club Ti-I College is often called a "traditional elite sports school" (Chinese: 傳統體育名校) by the news media. Until now, the college is the only secondary school in Hong Kong that achieved both boys and girls group basketball overall champion in the same tournament in the All Hong Kong Schools Jing Ying Basketball Tournament of 1998-99, a major school sport competition organised by the Hong Kong Schools Sports Federation.
The secondary school has been invited to different art-related projects, notably events such as the collaboration with agnès b and Optical 88 that invited the school's students to design eye-wears, and as one of the participating studios in Fo Tan Open Studios annual event.
Students of Jockey Club Ti-I College are required to choose a major either in visual arts or physical education before admission.
Other than specialised school-based curriculum for these two specialized areas, students study other subjects offered by a normal grammar school in Hong Kong. They eventually sit for the new Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) when they leave the college in Form 6.
Some students will continue to pursue tertiary education in physical education or visual arts and work in related fields upon graduation.
