可譽常識科主題式研習課程開展了!各位高小學生按照他們的意願,研習他們有興趣的課題。今年,「綠色生活」為可譽同學帶來了水耕種植。所謂水耕種植,是一種以營養液在水中栽種植物的技術,種植過程無需土壤,這種種植方法已經成為世界各地生產農作物的重要方法。「『水耕種植』即是用水量較高嗎?」不少同學都有相似的疑問,老師語重心長地回答:「跟土耕比較,水耕種植的用水效益比較高呢!水耕所用的滴水灌溉方式用水量少80%呢!」「老師,使用營養液會破壞環境嗎?」老師繼續解答:「水耕種植以循環方式使用營養液,不會像土耕般因灌溉或雨水沖刷而流失養份,污染河流,影響生態。」同學紛紛點頭,表示認同。一位同學發現了地上的植物,問:「為甚麼地上的泥跟我們平時用來種植的泥不同呢?」老師解釋:「這是椰糠,不是泥土,用以固定植物的。其實椰糠是椰子加工後的廢棄物,用來固定植物,絕對是善用資源呢!」老師指向架上的植物,說:「其實垂直種植也可以,可以不用泥土又節省用地。」

這一天,在譽花園的溫室,高小同學圍著老師,專心地聽老師講解,並就水耕種植發問。聽畢老師的解答,同學對於水耕種植有更深入的認識,原來水耕種植完全合乎環保的效益,且能有效提高產量。

這樣看來,「綠色生活」提升了同學的環保意識,還讓同學有機會接觸一種重要的種植方法,實在令人大開眼界啊!

 

We are glad to announce that our “Theme-based Study Programme” for the senior primary students has already started. This year, we are introducing hydroponic farming, which has become an essential method of crop production worldwide.

In the Greenhouse located in Ho Yu Garden where the lectures take place, our students raise questions about hydroponics out of curiosity:

Student A: What is hydroponics?

Teacher: Hydroponics is a technique of cultivation of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions in water. As it does not require sunlight and soil, it provides an alternative to outdoor soil-based farming.

Student B: Will the water consumption increase?

Teacher: Compared with soil-based farming, hydroponic farming has a high level of water efficiency. In hydroponics, the plant is nourished with nutrient-laden water by drip irrigation, which helps to reduce water consumption by 80%.

Student C: Does the use of nutrient solutions do any harm to the environment?

Teacher: No. The solutions are conserved in the tank, so there are no losses or changes of nutrients like they are in the soil. In the traditional soil-based farming where more fertilisers are used, the excessive fertilisers end up flowing into the rivers spoiling the water to be used by humans and animals.

Student D: Why do we see soil-like materials for the plants?

Teacher: It is not soil, but cocopeat, a growing medium made out of coconut husk. It is used to support the root system. Similarly, vertical hydroponic farming does not require soil and allows crops to be planted in multiple levels on a vertical axis for optimisation of space use.

Our students learn that growing with hydroponics comes with many advantages. The biggest of which is a significantly increased rate of growth in the plants. It is also beneficial to the environment because it reduces waste and pollution from soil runoff. Through the study, students not only acquire knowledge about a common plant growing method but also raise awareness of environmental protection.

星期五的下午(10月12日),是小一滿月活動舉行的日子,我們的小一同學加入可譽這個大家庭,升讀小學一個月了。當天禮堂相當熱鬧,大部分同學的爸爸媽媽都撥冗出席活動,與同學和老師歡聚,見證孩子成長重要的一刻。當天,小一班主任上台分享同學的學習情況,我們還邀請了家長和其他級別的同學上台分享,訴說學習生活的點滴。每位小一同學都會收到老師的心意卡和小禮品。我們期望,孩子能夠在可譽健康快樂地成長,成為一個熱愛學習的人。在成長路上,爸爸媽媽、老師從不缺席,身邊還有同窗好友並肩而行,這是多麼值得感恩的事啊!

The arrival of a baby is a joyful event that is marked in Chinese culture by a number of different customs and rituals. A month after confinement, mother and child are presented to friends and relatives with a full moon celebration. This celebration is held to celebrate that the baby has survived the first month of their life, which means that they are more likely to survive into adulthood.

Following this custom, P.1 Full Moon Celebration is held every year to celebrate our P.1 students’ first month of joyful school life at Ho Yu and it symbolizes the sustainable survival of them. More importantly, it provides a chance for them to show gratitude to their parents, teachers and fellow students for loving and caring them.


This year, we were delighted to see the presence of more than 100 parents who came to witness the grow th of their children at Ho Yu. They enjoyed listening to the sharing by the class teachers (P.1), parent (P.2) and fellow students (P.2 and P.4). Also, they gave a big round of applause after watching the P.1 students’ performances. Before taking a large group photo, each child was presented a small gift and a greeting card prepared by their class teachers. No wonder everyone brought the warmth and happiness home.

可譽師生研發的第一代太陽能車誕生後,希望發展出能更有效率、更先進的綠色交通工具,為保護地球出一分力。太陽能車的研究團隊名為「Sun Idea」,負責老師希望透過科學研究,啟發學生的探究精神。「Sun」是陽光,代表溫暖,象徵希望,可譽這隊太陽能車隊除了參與比賽,還致力於校內推廣環保科技,激發可譽人研究創新科技的興趣。

 

在可譽遷校十五周年開放日,可譽車隊於校園展示其研究成果,並讓到訪嘉賓嘗試操控。「Sun Idea」認為,研究不再是默默耕耘的事,而是與眾同樂的美事。除了中學生外,在場小學生既希望嘗試操控太陽能車,也希望了解其科學原理。可譽人,以大帶小,中學生對科學的熱誠,也一定程度上感染小學生了,不是嗎?

 

好消息!經過半年的製作,可譽的可載人太陽能車在測試日順利通過,同學們準備迎戰10月的決賽。
