7th January 2014 was our Staff Development Day. This year our staff visited the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Sham Shui Po, touring the campus and looking at their facilities and equipment. SCAD Hong Kong is a university for creative careers offering a variety of art and design degree programs. The campus was, in fact, the former North Kowloon Magistracy Building. The visit has enhanced our understanding in rehabilitating and revitalizing historic buildings. The next stop after SCAD was the museum of Mei Ho House. The museum provided our staff insights into the life of Hong Kong people from the 1950s to 70s. In the afternoon, group activities were organized at school and the Development Day ended at 4 p.m.
一月七日是本校的教師發展日。 一眾教師先前往深水埗，參觀薩凡納藝術設計（香港）學院。SCAD是美國一家美術及設計專科學院，提供有關藝術及設計學位課程。 其校舍是一座歷史建築物──前北九龍裁判法院，故是次參觀亦增加了各人對歷史建築物復修及活化的認知。 接著，教師們參觀美荷樓生活館，了解50至70年代香港的生活狀況、居住環境、社會文化、公共屋邨面貌和香港早期徙置計劃歷史。 午後，老師們在校內參與團體活動，而發展日亦於下午四時完結。
