To support the “Science & Art Week” launched this year, we invited the Hong Kong Society for Children’s Education to organise a teacher development program titled “Incorporating art in children’s science education – creative school-based curriculum” for our teachers. The program, which was led by the Society’s Chief Executive Mr. Simon Yung and Ms. Teresa Jane OU, introduced to our teachers ways of creating art with different materials. Through engaging students in creating art of different themes and with different materials, as well as guiding them to explore the relationship between nature and science, we help promote students’ curiosity and exploratory mind, instill in them an interest of loving, creativity, innovation and ingenuity.
We invited Ms. Chan from Family Health Education and Counselling Centre of Yang Memorial Methodist Social Service to hold a Teachers Development Day titled “Humbleness, Gregariousness and Confidence” for us.
Teachers gained a deeper understanding of what “humbleness”, “gregariousness” and confidence” in children truly means through talks and games. They also learnt how mental development affects a child’s character and the skills in promoting children’s moral development.
We participated in the “Playful Learning” teacher development programme in drama education led by the Department of Early Childhood Education of the Education University of Hong Kong, and organsied by the Hong Kong Repertory Theatre. The programme aimed to help schools incorporate drama education in the school-based curriculum and equip teachers with skills of drama teaching.
