More students have been learning how to navigate their way around Hong Kong, as part of a Deep Learning study.
Small groups from Year 7 have spent a day off campus as part of an ‘Independent Travel’ unit.
They travelled to sites of historical and cultural interest in Fanling, Shatin and Tai, allowing them to develop the key skills of collaboration, perseverance and problem solving, which are central to the ICHK philosophy.
All Year 7 and 8 students are enjoying similar opportunities, working in small groups with a lead teacher, and completing a Flexible Learning planning unit in advance.
Exercises like these will help to prepare our youngest students for more Deep Learning units next term. This is a key element of the ICHK curricula and is all designed to encourage independence, motivation, enjoyment and depth in learning.
