Abundant learning resources to connect with nature

OPAHK provides environmental education programmes that blend well into school curricula. Our programmes offer diverse learning opportunities and encourage students to appreciate and bond with nature. Students may observe a multitude of flora and fauna in close proximity in the eleven animal exhibits inside the Park, outside the Park and even outside of Hong Kong, discovering the many wonders of nature.

Embracing educational needs with stakeholders participation

In our curriculum design and assessment, OPAHK strives to keep abreast of education trends and the needs of the academic community through the Education Committee and the Teachers Working Group. Our passionate educators come from diverse academic backgrounds so as to offer a rich combination of teaching skills. They visit zoos and aquariums around the world to learn about new ideas and obtain professional training.

Experiential learning for discovery and inspiration

OPAHK offers educational programmes on more than 30 themes which allow students to extend and personalise their school-based learning to the interactive environment of Ocean Park. Incorporating experiential learning with meaningful activities, our programmes enable students to proactively discover, explore and be inspired through their own observations. After reflection and sharing, students are encouraged to integrate their insights into their daily lives.

Interdisciplinary learning to break through boundaries

OPAHK has specially designed a series of programme for secondary school students and with reference to the "Learning to Learn 2+ - The Hong Kong School Curriculum". The programmes are reinforced with career planning components and STEAM elements. Students are empowered to break through the boundaries of subjects, integrate knowledge and skills acquired, and enrich their learning-oriented and other experiences. All this will equip students with independent thinking skills and inquiring ability which nurture lifelong learning.

Our Campus

Teachers Working Group

Ocean Park Academy Hong Kong (OPAHK) shoulders the mission of education at Ocean Park. We strive to make good use of the diversified environments and facilities inside the Park to provide teachers and students with an opportunity to get close to nature and enjoy learning through activities and real-life experiences.

In order to better utilize the resources in the Park and to promote environmental education in conjunction with schools, the Teachers Working Group has been established. Since its establishment, the group has been working closely with OPAHK, providing us with professional ideas and comments on our current and future activities and teaching materials.

The members of the Teachers Working Group include current principals or teachers working at kindergartens, primary and secondary schools. Meetings, gatherings and free visits are held at Ocean Park to discuss and explore how we can make better use of the Park’s facilities and resources to match the needs of schools, to work closely together with schools in promoting environmental education and to raise the transparency of OPAHK.

    We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all Teachers Working Group members for providing us professional ideas and comments. (in no particular order)
