5th January 2015 was our Staff Development Day. This year our teaching staff visited the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (Haking Wong Campus) in Cheung Sha Wan, touring the campus and looking at their facilities and equipment. The Institute is the leading provider of vocational education and training in the region. Their teaching and learning approach is practical, hands-on and outcome-based. The visit has enhanced our understanding in the development of vocational education and training in Hong Kong. The next stop after was the Nan Lian Garden. The Garden provided our staff with insights into the classical style of Tang landscape gardens; we enjoyed a moment of leisure and peace of mind, whilst reflecting on the profound richness of classical Chinese culture, right in the midst of the urban city hustle and bustle.
一月五日是本校的教師發展日。 一眾教師先前往長沙灣，參觀香港專業教育學院黃克競分校。該院校是區內卓越的專業教育培訓機構，著重傳授實際技能，強調實踐經驗及成效。是次參觀增加了教師們對香港專業教育培訓及發展的認知。 接著，教師們前往參觀南蓮園池，了解唐代園林佈置和建築的特色。古園風景明麗，富詩情畫意，讓人發思古之幽情。是次遊覽令各人增加了對中國傳統歷史和文化的認識及興趣。
