This paper assesses the ways of implementation of civic education through extra-curricular activities in Hong Kong secondary schools in terms of their parts in the structure of schools' civic education programmes, the provision, items, nature, membership, organization of extra-curricular activities and students' participation. This paper concludes that it is not optimistic to promote civic education through extra-curricular activities as there are many negative factors involved. Finally, it makes suggestions on the implementation of future civic education programmes through extra-curricular activities, as well as the research questions to be explored.
