This girls' school was built in the 19th country but its current site was renovated in the past decade. It looked so clean, luxurious and classy as we walked into the main entrance. I thought it looked more like a hotel than a school! We listened to a talk from the management team and was led by a talented Year 12 girl to tour around the junior and senior schools. The spacious campus with soothing colour tone gave me a very welcoming and academic feeling. Its junior school was a hub for comfortable and supportive learning. The canteen was unbelievably bright, large, and tidy! Their "forest" was particularly motivating. Also, its curriculum provided a balanced school life to students. In Canada, admission to a university does not rely on just one set of examination results; school performances and involvement in extra-curricular activities are equally important. Thus, having a school that offers different possibilities and dimensions of learning is vital. Hong Kong does not have enough land to offer a castle or forest for students to explore, yet we can keep widening students' horizon when designing our curriculum. Encouraging overseas/out-of-classroom learning and bringing overseas experience back to school have always been part of our teaching strategies, right?
Well, tomorrow is our final full day in Canada in this tour. Will be a busy day as well. Stay tuned.
