ation, and we’re recruiting students interested in a unique opportunity to teach and mentor underprivileged youth in Hong Kong! Since 1992, many ESF students have been our Student Teachers and have counted it as one their most impactful internship experiences.

Your child will know who their Humanities teacher is.
The trip is designed to support student learning in investigating historical and geographical change and the tourist attractions of one of Hong Kong’s outlying islands.
On the day of the trip, students should come to school dressed in House colours. Students will register in their form room as normal and then assemble on the block 5 playground at 8.05 am, where their Humanities teacher will brief them for the day’s activities. We would ask that all students come to school as normal on that day.
A bus will take students down to the ferry pier in Central, where we will take a public ferry to the outlying island. Students should have an Octopus card in order to pay for the ferry. Please ensure that students have at least $50 value on their Octopus cards. Students will need a packed lunch, at least 1.5 litres of drinking water, a digital camera/smartphone to take pictures, sun cream, a sun hat as well as a raincoat/umbrella (in case of wet weather). Students may want to bring a small amount of spending money to purchase supplementary refreshments.
Students will return to Hong Kong Island by ferry and it is expected that we will return to the Central Ferry pier 4 at 3pm where students will either make their own way home, be picked up by a parent/guardian or return to school by bus arriving back at approximately 3.30pm. Please note that the return to school will be after the school buses have departed.
