國際教育 Global Education

現今社會早已進入「全球化時代」,身處作為國際都會的香港,我們的孩子將來亦需要面向全世界。

我們成為屯門以至全港最先開辦「國際教育」的小學之一,以全新設計的學習範疇,透過專題研習形式,探索本地、全球、跨文化議題,藉此理解及欣賞不同的世界觀。

We are one of the pioneers in Tuen Mun, or even in Hong Kong to introduce a school-based curriculum of Global Education Learning Domain. Through the project-based learning, our students have the opportunities to examine local, global and intercultural issues, and understand and appreciate different perspectives and world views.

 

Introduction to Global Education

As globalization is affecting every society on earth in terms of economy, culture, technology, environment and politic, our students are living in an era that nations and peoples are more interdependent than ever before. Therefore, it is our responsibility to equip our students to be globally competent, which is the ability of examining local, global and intercultural issues, understanding and appreciating different perspectives and world views, interacting successfully and respectfully with others, and taking responsible action toward sustainability and collective well-being.
