Curriculum

Within Pui Kiu College, students should develop knowledge and skills in the areas of life science,

physical science, and chemistry. At each grade level, topics in earth/space, life science,  chemistry,  

and   physical  science are interconnected to show students the relationships that exist among the

sciences, technology, society, and the natural world. This is best experienced through open-ended,

hands-on inquiry that promotes student-generated questions that result in children thinking and

acting like a scientist. 

A variety of education programmes will be held to enhance students’ understanding and awareness

of our   natural   environment,   e.g.  “Oceanographer”,  “Marine discovery”, “Mangrove Field Study”

and  “Astronomical Activities", etc. Students will also use computer technology as a tool to support

learning in existing curriculum areas   and   in   many   forms   including   inquiry,   communication,  

expression,   and   construction.   In   some   learning  programmes,  e.g. “International Students

Virtual Conference” and “Knowledge Forum”,  students  are  challenged  to  think  independently,

to use their natural curiosity to investigate the world and to gain the skills to communicate with others.

Besides, some learning   programmes, e.g. “Butterfly Explorer”, “Renewable Energy & Solar Model

Car Challenge”, “Mad Science”, “Young Scientists Club”, and “Robot Challenge” etc. are designed to

cater for the learning needs of  outstanding and talented students in a variety of situations. 

 

Thus, students will:

•  understand and appreciate the workings of their natural and physical environment, and develop

   an interest in and enjoyment from the study of science;

  demonstrate substantial knowledge of facts, concepts, conceptual networks, and process skills

   tthat enable them to continue to learn and think logically;

 understand how science, technology, society and environment are interrelated and use this

   knowledge in everyday decision making, and develop an attitude of responsible citizenship,

   including respect for the environment and wise use of resources.
