A 60-minute education tour for schools, introducing the history and conservation of the Central Police Station compound to students across different age levels. Teachers can also use different themed tour kits to design their own tour activity content.
A 3-hour activity immersing students in Tai Kwun’s heritage atmosphere to learn about the history and development of Hong Kong’s judicial system. The activity offers two themes to suit upper primary to secondary students.
This activity is available in Cantonese only.
Through craft activities or other hands-on experiences, this programme aims to bring a fun approach to learning beyond the four walls of the historic compound. Students will begin to build understanding and empathy towards the diverse people and stories that shaped Tai Kwun and Hong Kong.
Teachers may use activity cards designed by the Tai Kwun Heritage Education Team to encourage students to observe and reflect on Tai Kwun’s architecture and heritage stories during their visit. Student activity cards are available for different age levels: (1) kindergarten, (2) lower primary, (3) upper primary to lower secondary, and (4) upper secondary. Please contact email@example.com to request your set.
This handbook acquaints primary and secondary school teachers with the history and revitalisation of Tai Kwun. Suggested learning activities deepen students’ understanding of Hong Kong’s conservation policies, as well as the importance of striking a balance between conservation and sustainable urban development.
