Aims & Objectives:

•    To facilitate students' comprehension of the Earth they inhabit, allowing them to discern and interpret, from a spatial standpoint, the organization of phenomena and features on Earth, the underlying processes, the interactions that take place, the resulting changes, and the emerging issues and management approaches.
•    To foster students' development of their overall intellectual capacity and essential skills necessary for continuous learning, achieved through geographical inquiry, and the ability to apply these skills in real-life situations.
•    To gain a comprehensive understanding and acknowledgment of the arrangement of phenomena and features on Earth, while also recognizing the interconnectedness and interactions among individuals, places, and environments from spatial and ecological perspectives.

Expectation for Geography students:

•    Students are expected to develop strong spatial awareness and map-reading skills, enabling them to interpret and analyze maps effectively, navigate spatial information, and understand geographical patterns and relationships.
•    Students should possess the ability to collect, analyze, and interpret geographic data using various tools and techniques, such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), fieldwork, and statistical methods, allowing them to make informed assessments and draw meaningful conclusions.
•    Students are expected to understand the interconnectedness between human activities and the natural environment, analyzing how human actions impact physical landscapes and ecosystems, as well as recognizing how physical factors shape human societies and cultures, fostering an appreciation for the intricate dynamics of human-environment interactions.

Highlights of Academic Activities:

Field trips are the highlight of Geography curriculum. Learning outside the classroom which can arouse students’ interests and broaden their horizons.

Field trips in the past few years:

Field trips serve as the focal point of the Geography curriculum, offering students the opportunity to learn beyond the confines of the classroom, igniting their interests and expanding their perspectives. Recent Field Trips included:

1.    Cheung Chau, Organized by Caritas Chan Chun Ha Field Studies Centre
2.    Sheung Wan, Urban landuse
3.    Ho Koon Nature Education cum Astronomical Centre
4.    Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change at CUHK
5.    Hoi Ha Wan Marine Life Centre
