Environmental Education in Ho Fung

Objectives & Policy

The objectives of our environmental education are to provide opportunities for students to acquire the knowledge and skills for sustainable development and to provide opportunities for all of us to promote environmental protection among ourselves and the general public.

We adopt a whole school and interdisciplinary approach to realize our objectives for environmental education.  All subjects departments are expected to help.  The Geography, Liberal Studies, Biology, Chemistry and Integrated Sciences Departments teach relevant topics.  Other departments could help when they have the chance to cover environmental education.  For example, language departments could set essay topics on pollution problems and PE teachers could ask students to clean up football pitches after matches, etc.  Similarly, all ECA clubs and societies could help organizing activities related to environmental education.  In addition, a group of Student Environmental Protection Ambassadors are appointed to form the Environmental Protection Unit to help practise and promote environmental education in the school.

 

A Milestone for the development of environmental education in Ho Fung

2015 is a milestone for the development of environmental education in Ho Fung as we have joined the Student Environment Protection Ambassador Scheme (SEPAS) which have jointly organized by the Environmental Campaign Committee, Environmental Protection Department and Education Bureau for 20 years since 1995/96.  The Scheme aims at enhancing students' environmental awareness and developing their sense of responsibility towards the environment.

Among the past 20 years, seven of our alumni have been awarded as one the Ten Most Outstanding SEPAs in particular years from 1995-96 to 1999-2000 and many of our SEPAs in the other years have been awarded as the Outstanding SEPAs of the scheme. 

Another important scheme related to environmental education is the Hong Kong Green School Award (HKGSA) which is also organized by the Environmental Campaign Committee, Environmental Protection Department and Education Bureau since 2000.  The objectives of this Scheme are to encourage schools to formulate a school environmental policy and environmental management plan towards a green school, enhance environmental awareness, develop environmentally friendly attitude and promote green practices among school managers, teachers, non-teaching staff, students and their families.  Our school has a great success as we have got the 2nd (2001-02), the 7th (2008-09) and the 10th (2011-12) Hong Kong Green School Award.
