July 3rd 2014 was a hot sunny day. People should be staying in an air-conditioned room with a cold drink. Yet, 60 tough S.5 students taking Geography made use of this opportunity to study the Island Weather on Cheung Chau. They were divided into groups and collected data of each weather element at different check points. Then they processed and interpreted the data and presented their findings. From the field study, they got some strange findings that you wouldn’t have imagined. For instance, they found that places with the highest light intensity do not necessary receive the highest temperature. They then looked for the factors which cause the dilemma. They also found that the wind direction there is different from the prevailing wind of H.K. and that is due to local factors. This is what a field work should be! Finally, their teamwork and punctuality were highly commended.

本年七月三日是一個炎熱的日子,理應留在冷氣房間享受凍飲;但60名好學的中五地理科學生趁此良機,前往長洲研習小島天氣。他們發揮團體協作的精神,分成小組,在各檢查點收集天氣數據,然後整理分析,並把成果匯報。過程中,他們得到了一些意想不到的發現,例如光度最高地方的溫度不是最高,長洲的風向因受地區因素影響跟本港盛行風不同:這就是野外考察的意義!
