GE Retreat: Refresh Your Teaching; Reframe Our GE

After a year of hard work, it is the perfect time for colleagues to escape from the hustle and bustle of school life and get refreshed in a comfortable countryside hotel with a spectacular sea view.


This year, GE Retreat will bring you to the Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel in Tuen Mun for a whole day relaxation. To refresh your teaching in GE, invited colleagues will share how they use interactive ways to engage students in their learning. You will know more about student-led approaches and successful strategies which help you be a better facilitator in GE classrooms.


After lunch, we will do simple but practical exercises to release our stress and refresh our body in an outdoor grass field. To further enrich the day, brainstorming and discussions will be initiated on the future development and reframing of GE Programme.


Don’t miss this valuable opportunity to refresh and excel together!

Time: 10:30am – 4:45pm
Venue: Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel, 1 Castle Peak Road, So Kwun Wat, Tuen Mun District, New Territories, Hong Kong
