Ocean Park Academy Hong Kong comprises a group of lively and enthusiastic educators committed to environmental education. We receive professional training from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and the National Association for Interpretation (NAI), and visit different zoos and aquariums around the world to learn new ideas. We also strive to collect and accommodate different opinions through the Teachers Working Group (TWG) and the Education Advisory Committee (EAC). We hope to influence our students with our enthusiasm and leave a greener, better planet for future generations.
Ocean Park Academy Hong Kong (OPAHK) provides environmental educational programmes that blend into the school curriculum. Offering diverse learning opportunities, these programmes nurture students’ attitudes towards, and skills and knowledge about animal and environmental conservation. An experiential learning approach is one of the key elements of our programmes. Students make discoveries and receive inspiration through observation. They are motivated to think and thus facilitate self-learning. OPAHK also features the Teacher Day Camp to inspire and assist teachers about implementing environmental education. Apart from in-park activities, OPAHK organises outreach seminars and project-based learning programme in schools as well.
The Ocean Park Academy (OPA) 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 the OPA, 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 the OPA.
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)
