With an aim to equip our students to be leaders with global competence and active learners, the Liberal Studies Department has organized a Project Learning Study Tour to Fukui, Japan from 13 to 20 February. Collaborating with the USUI High School (our sister school), 20 of our secondary four and five students were having a chance to share a presentation in the International Roundtable Conference organized by the OECD Education 2030 at the Fukui University on the topics of “Housing Problem in Hong Kong” and “Problems of Plastic Wastes in Hong Kong”. During the conference, our students had precious opportunities to exchange ideas with professors, teachers and students from Egypt, Japan and Philippines.
Another highlight of the tour is the visit to the Usui High School. Our students had English, Home Economics, Physical Education and Music lessons with Usui students together. Experiencing the Japanese high school culture, students had memorable experience in interacting with Usui students. We had also participated in two activities organized by their school’s English Speaking Society and Japanese Harp Society. From the visit, our students value most the friendship they have made with Usui students.
Last but not least, we have also explored different famous tourist spots in Nagoya, Osaka and Kyoto. The visits to the Fukui Dinosaur Museum, Shirakawa Go, the Kiyomizu Temple and the Yasaka Shrine have provided us valuable experience to explore the beauty of Japan from vast perspectives.
