- Purpose of the trip
I am writing to inform you of the coming field trip to Sky 100 for 6A students, which is a component of an inter-disciplinary project designed by History and Geography teachers.
We believe it is a golden opportunity for students to leave the classroom, exploring and investigating our city. The details of the trip are as follows.
The trip will be held on November 3 (Saturday). Students will be required to arrive at the school gate by 9:30 a.m., where a shuttle bus will be waiting to take the students to the alluring attraction. Students will spend the day at the skyscraper, absorbing knowledge of various fields. At 5 p.m., students will be dismissed.
There is a host of objectives we are hoping to achieve during the visit to Sky 100. To commence with, we aim to provide students with the opportunity to understand more about the historical backgrounds and events of Hong Kong.
Observing our city at the best location, students would spectate the attractive scenery in awe, boosting their sense of belonging to Hong Kong. During the visit, history teachers will introduce the humble beginning of the city and explain the origin and historical development of some renowned buildings in Central and Wan Chai, such as the Post Office, the headquarters of HSBC, the Bank of China Tower as well as the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
As a result, students can learn more about the significant roles of various buildings.
Another purpose of the activity is to allow 6A students to have a better understanding of the land use in Hong Kong.
While our Geography textbooks cover this topic, our teachers would like our students to explore the issues related to land use from a bird’s eye view. From the observation tower of Sky 100, students will have the chance to take a glance of various housing estates, commercial buildings, sports grounds and historical monuments in our central business districts. During the process, our Geography teachers will explain the considerations the government takes when formulating the blueprint of urban development. After the visit, students will be required to complete a reflection on the trip.
Hopefully, 6A students can broaden their horizons and know more about the land development in Hong Kong.
Lastly, the visit to Sky 100 is a rare chance for 6A students to relax themselves.
In the preparation for the HKDSE, our students are mostly trapped in the classroom and seldom have the chance to chill out.
Organized at the beginning of November, the activity can enable students to take a break from the hectic schedule and stressful school life right after the uniform test. More importantly, it is the perfect opportunity for students to enjoy themselves together. Through taking selfies in front of the magnificent scenery of the Victory Harbour and chatting with their confidants, students will surely gain some unforgettable experience in their life, which is something they will treasure and look back on with a smile on their faces after their graduation.
The total cost of the trip is $200, which includes transportation cost and the packaged lunch for students, which will be arranged by the school.
It is sincerely hoped that 6A students will seize the invaluable chance to step outside the classroom and broaden their horizons. Should you have queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school for more information regarding the trip. We will try to get back to you as soon as possible.
Class Teacher of 6A
