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

Ocean Park is a highly-diversified organisation, with professionals in different fields working together. Our programmes provide students with the rare opportunity to visit our many Behind-The-Scene areas and interact with our professional teams. Students are introduced to the challenges encountered by our staff, and invited to find out solutions, as a means of equipping students in solving challenges they may face in the future and inspiring students’ potential interests in various 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.
