Promoting Local Tourism and Culture
Inter-school Project Learning Competition in Hong Kong Tourism Industry Student Summit 2022-23
The Curriculum Development Institute of the Education Bureau, togetherwith Hong Kong Tourism Board, organised the “Hong Kong TourismIndustry Student Summit 2022/23”, which aims to enable students of Tourism and Hospitality Studies (THS) to raise their understanding of the local tourism industry particularly on the promotion of cultural tourism. There were over 80 participating schools.
12 of our Secondary Five THS students were nominated to participate in the Inter-school Project Learning Competition, in which S5C TO WING HEI, TO WING SUM, WONG ON NI and LIN KAI HING were the Promotion Team (Hotel). They designed itineraries for a local hotel and conducted field research followed by a write up of project report and a group presentation.
Judged by a professional adjudicating panel, their entry was awarded the second runner up of the Promotion Team (Hotel).
Last Day of School “Six Years of Companionship”
Our Secondary Six students will be taking their study leave soon. The school has held various activities with an aim to boosting their morale.
Our peer counsellors hosted song requesting sessions namely “Convey Your Heart” for students to express their thoughts and feelings on air. S6 Quality Circle offered some Japanese Ema for S6 students and teachers to write down their wishes on these small wooden plaques. In lunchtime, a music show was held to encourage S6 students with uplifting songs. Last but not least, all S6 teachers and students gathered in the school hall where they watched videos recording students’ growth, followed by graduation performance by each class. The curtain was closed in a moving atmosphere after S6 students sung the school song together one last time.
We wish all S6 students best of luck in the DSE. Ho Yu’s got your back!
Visit Tai Kwun
Our Secondary Four students visited Tai Kwun (the historic Central Police Station compound) to understand its historical meaning, purposes upon revitalisation, and explore how sustainable development could be achieved by making use of current facilities.
Travelling brings about far greater benefit than mere book learning. We encourage our students to grasp every opportunity to enrich their knowledge and broaden their horizons.
Despite differences, we share things in common
“Small Small World Carnival” for Non-native students
On 18th February, 2023, our teachers and a number of Non-native students from P3-P5 went to Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre to visit ‘Small Small World Carnival’ They participated in the following activites:
- Name hat workshop: A workshop of making a personal name hat and sharing with each other. Children can understand more about their own culture and other things across cultures.
- Exhibition and game stalls: Under the guidance of the tour guide, through exhibition and game stalls, such as United Nations Snack Street, Starry Story Cinema etc., children understand the message for the big big world: “We are different, but we share something in common!”
Teachers and students had a lot of fun on that day. We hope that, through this activity, children can start from their own culture and explore cultural inclusion in everyday life, so as to build an inclusive society and understand that love that can transcend skin color and borders.
Planning the Future with Handy Information
Education & Careers Expo
Aiming to grasp comprehensive information on education and job opportunities, our S4 and S5 students participated in the Education & Careers Expo organised by the HKTDC at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
In the “Education Zone”, students had an in-depth understanding of the admission requirements and university life of tertiary education in order to plan their future path and get ready for it.
In the “Career Zone”, students learnt about the nature, entry requirements, prospects, cultures and the latest development of different industries for a better career planning. S4 and S5 students actively engaged in the information session in the hope of planning their future prudently and take responsibility for their own choices.
Into the Mills
Exploring the History of Textiles and the Revitalised Building
Earlier, our S4 students visited the Mills to discover its history. They explored the manufacturing heyday in the 1960s, and how it carried on that legacy with a future of applied creativity and innovation.
Exploring the purposes and features of the revitalised Mills, students discussed the reasons of its transformation into an attraction of local culture. It was an impressive, brand-new experience for students to discover the spinning process and the working environment of textile workers in the old days.
