Learning objectives for students:
 
Knowledge and understanding

Students are expected to develop knowledge and understanding of:

  1. how natural environments influence human activities, and how human activities alter natural environments

  2. the changing development of geographical phenomena and issues in terms of space and time

  3. the characteristics and functioning of major natural environments, through analysing the processes and interactions within and between them

  4. the characteristics and development of major human activities, in order to achieve a sense of “region”

  5. the issues arising from people-environment interactions and the human responses to such issues, as well as the implications of these human responses for resource management

 

Skills

Students are expected to develop:

  1. geographical enquiry skills, including the ability to:

    • identify and ask questions from a geographical perspective

    • locate, select and extract appropriate information and data from primary and secondary sources (e.g. the field, surveys, documents, maps, charts, ground and aerial photos and Geographic Information System [GIS] data), which require the ability to observe and record data systematically and accurately

  2. present and organise information and data, which involves the ability to:

    • use appropriate techniques for summarising (e.g. descriptive statistics such as measures of central tendency and variability)

    • use appropriate formats, such as texts (e.g. reports, tables, summaries, etc.) and illustrations (such as maps, diagrams, models, sketches, and graphs)

  3. compare, analyse, synthesise and evaluate, in order to interpret information and data

  4. for making inferences and drawing conclusions, which includes:

    • the use of appropriate statistical techniques (e.g. correlation)

    • analysis of spatial patterns using GIS

  5. evaluate the findings, solutions or conclusions drawn from enquiry

 

Values and attitudes

Students are expected to develop values and attitudes that will enable them to:

  1. have a sense of wonder and curiosity about peoples, places and environments

  2. show respect for all peoples, and their cultures, values and ways of life

  3. recognise environmental problems and take appropriate action to promote sustainable development

  4. cultivate a sense of belonging to society and the nation and become active and responsible citizens

  5. be aware of the increasing global interdependence of peoples and nations, and appreciate the importance of international solidarity and cooperation

2013 Cross-subject Collaboration Activity between Economics and Geography

 

Providing an invaluable opportunity to enrich the learning experience and to enlighten minds of hundreds, students of both Economics and Geography streams of our school had joined hands in the 2013 Cross-subject three-day-exhibition of Economics and Geography on the topic of ‘The inter-relationship between Environment and Society’, at the school hall, in last May.  This is the first time to have such event of this nature ever organized for and participated by students acoss subjects, as well as, across S2 to S6 levels of our school.  Both the participants and the exhibition-goers found it worth-participating. Exhibition of this nature helps learning of both subjects.     

2013 Field Trip to Wanchai

 

To arouse students’ interest in Geography and to provide a first-hand on-the-site-experience in the learning of the subject content and the application of the learned skills, the subject department had organized the ‘Field Trip to Wanchai’ for our S6 students, in last December. Students participants found the field trip interesting and beneficial.

 

2014 Hong Kong Geography Olympiad

 

To arouse the students’ interest in the learning of Geography and to enrich the learning experience, S4 Geography students of our school have joined the 2014 Hong Kong Geography Olympiad, in this March.  This is the first time to have our students joining the event of such nature.  The participants have found that it is worthwhile. Competition of this nature helps the learning of Geography.
