Whale (Secondary 4 - 6) - Workplace Visits to Ocean Park

"Workplace Visits to Ocean Park” provide an opportunity for students to visit various behind-the-scenes work areas and interact with our professional teams. STEAM elements are introduced into the programme to support cross-curricular learning. We introduce students to challenges encountered by our staff and encourage them to seek solutions, as a means of equipping them to solve real-life problems. This also increases their understanding of, and potential interest in, different career options.

    Words from the Teachers

    “Workplace Visits to Ocean Park − Marine Mammal Training and Husbandry” suits our school’s career curriculum, specifically the topic ‘‘ASK’’ (Attitude, Skills and Knowledge). It informs students about the career paths of different work positions. What I like most in this programme is going backstage to take a close look at the dolphins.
