Aims & Objectives:

The broad aims of the Physics curriculum are to enable students to:
  • develop interest in the physical world and maintain a sense of wonder and curiosity about it;
  • construct and apply knowledge of physics, and appreciate the relationship between
  • physical science and other disciplines;
  • appreciate and understand the nature of science in physics-related contexts;
  • develop skills for making scientific inquiries;
  • develop the ability to think scientifically, critically and creatively, and to solve problems individually or collaboratively in physics-related contexts;
  • understand the language of science and communicate ideas and views on physics-related issues;
  • make informed decisions and judgments on physics-related issues; and be aware of the social, ethical, economic, environmental and technological implications of physics, and develop an attitude of responsible citizenship.

Bishop Hall Junior Scientists (Physics)

F.4 Physics students acted as Physics teachers to guide two groups of Primary 5 students to go through a series of physics optic experiments.

Hong Kong Primary & Secondary Schools STEM Robotics Competition 2018 (Junior Secondary Divisions)

Through a series of robotic missions, students were encouraged to:
- Nurture their interest in robotics, computer science and information technology;
- Hone their problem-solving and logical thinking skills; and
- Strengthen their ability to communicate and cooperate effectively.

CLP Engineer in School Programme

- A talk about working as an electrical engineer in CLP, as well as some electricity-related environment issues was conducted for F.2 and F.3 students.
- An app workshop about Smart Home was conducted for a selected group of students.
- One of our students was also selected to join a mentorship programme with a CLP Engineer at their office for a few days.

Ocean Park Academy - Physics in Motion

“Physics in Motion” offers our Physics students the opportunity to use state-of-the-art learning facilities and to hop on one of Ocean Park’s mechanical rides in order to learn the mechanic principles behind them. Students explored the most exciting rides in the Park and designed their own rides.
