With rapid advancements in science and technology and an ever-expanding knowledge base, science will continue to have a profound impact on people's lives. Through the study of chemistry, students gain knowledge of chemical concepts and processes while also becoming familiar with developments in engineering, medicine, and other related fields of science and technology.


Our school's chemistry curriculum aims to enhance the interest and practicality of learning chemistry, and it suggests incorporating real-life contexts to guide students in acquiring chemical knowledge. The curriculum has diversified scenarios, teaching and learning strategies, and assessment methods to cater to students' different abilities and aspirations, thereby stimulating their interest and motivation to learn.


Over the past five years, the chemistry department has introduced various teaching activities to make learning chemistry more enjoyable and practical. Starting in May 2011, our department participated in the Chemist online program organized by the Quality Education Fund. This program provided an online platform for students to learn chemistry, including watching lectures and completing related exercises either online or by attending chemistry events at universities. Students also had the opportunity to interact with peers from other schools through the online platform, exchanging experiences and discussing challenging problems. Upon completion of the program, students received certificates to acknowledge their achievements.


In addition to the Chemist online program, the chemistry department also provides career-related activities such as workshops on forensic science at the Science Park, where students actively engage in forensic work, nurturing their interests in this profession. Furthermore, students conduct various chemistry experiments during class, and once they possess a certain foundation of chemical knowledge, they have the opportunity to engage in chemical research and showcase their investigative findings to fellow students.


Under the guidance of dedicated chemistry teachers, several students over the past five years have pursued university courses related to chemistry. Here is a partial list:


2012: Bachelor of Science at the University of Hong Kong (Ng Kwok Wai)/ Bachelor of Science in Chemical Technology at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Lee Chun Kit), Medical Laboratory Science (Chung Siu Ming), Nursing (Chan Lai Tak)/ BSc in Chemistry at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Lai Ka Lei)

2011: BSc in Chemistry at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Kong Wing)

2010: BSc in Chemistry at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Gong Pak Yin)/ BSc in Medical Laboratory Science (Lou Wing Kwan and Lee Mun Tuen), Food Testing (Lam Yuk Chun)


In the future, the chemistry department will maintain its current teaching approach and continuously refine teaching activities to achieve its mission: providing students with learning experiences related to chemistry and cultivating their scientific literacy, enabling them to actively participate in our rapidly changing knowledge-based society.
