Innovative life-wide learning through a STREAM approach
Flow-STREAM Learning for Schools

The Absolutely Fabulous Theatre Connection (AFTEC) presents the Living Campus 2019.
Sponsored by the Tin Ka Ping Foundation and supported by the Eden Project,
STREAM provides opportunities to teachers and students from P1 to S3 to take part in a multitude of cross-disciplinary, interactive and unique events in the Shalowan Living Campus.

Student Creative Activity WorkBook will be distributed to the participating teachers and students which consists of learning materials for use in the village and off-site learning materials to be used for continuity back at school. Catering to the all-around learning needs from school subject, culture and life knowledge, the Student Creative Activity Workbook will be divided into curriculum suitable for Key Stage 1 to 3.

Teachers will be guided through Workshops for teachers’ Continuing Professional Development to enhance student learning across the curriculum with life-wide learning and field trips. STREAM encourages the exchange of teaching experience and more importantly, foster a non-school education support network to promote future partnerships between Hong Kong and overseas educational institutions.
