Harbour Green Campus

Overview

Welcome to Victoria (Harbour Green) Kindergarten.  We are one of the two Victoria Kindergartens located on the Kowloon side, and welcome 430 enthusiastic students each day.
 
Harbour Green campus runs trilingual programmes for 2 to 6 years olds from Pre-Nursery to K3, and proudly offers the IB Primary Years Programme and the Columbia University Teachers College Reading and Writing Project (TCRWP).  We also offer cross-curricula enrichment activities in the areas of music, art, and sports in order to foster balanced development in our children.

HARBOUR GREEN CAMPUS - 5 FEATURES

Learning is everywhere A large, common open area allows for innovative learning experiences
Large, open-space learning areas are a signature feature of a 21st century school environment. At Victoria Harbour Green, we have six different sections in our large open play area allowing for the development of literacy, mathematics, role-play, sensory, arts, and science. Each section of this play area is updated throughout the year and linked to the ‘Units of Inquiry’ students are investigating. Through innovative learning experiences, we are able to extend students learning from each individual classroom to the common play area so that they can make connections from the individual to the whole community learning level.
Inquiry based Library Supporting inquiry learning by reading
Our library provides a relaxed and safe environment that offers repeated exposure to positive interactions. In this space students have access to a wide variety of books, and are exposed to diverse story times and lessons taught by our experienced librarian. All of these experiences have a significant impact on brain development, foster students’ curiosity to inquire, and help to develop vital early literacy and mathematical skills. Most importantly, our library provides an opportunity for students to develop a love of books and reading. The collection of books in our library is organised in connection with the six transdisciplinary themes, and the ten learner profile attributes of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.
21st Century Learning Constructing a student-centred, skill driven, concept-based curriculum
As thoughtful educators who are committed to continuous improvement, we reflect annually on our curriculum and the way we teach it. Our well-trained teachers are able to deliver the most up-to-date cutting edge trilingual programme by applying their knowledge gained from participating in worldwide professional development workshops. Best practice of 21st century teaching and learning involves certain strategic, timeless elements. Flexibility is one of the key elements when delivering a programme which promotes skill driven, concept based and play based learning. We know that using technology with our students is also one of the keys in unlocking 21st century global skill sets. Hence, all our classrooms, including our library, are equipped with an Interactive Whiteboard and a visualiser which are used to enhance learning.
Convenient Location Located in West Kowloon
Location is not simply a matter of providing safe and enjoyable learning experiences for children. More importantly, parents appreciate the accessibility of our school. Victoria Harbour Green is conveniently located in one of Hong Kong’s developing areas - West Kowloon. Our school is easily accessible by the MTR which is just 5 minutes walking distance away from the Olympic Station. Located in a private residential estate, the safety and privacy of our students is of paramount importance. A warm, welcoming, and highly supervised environment is a must when it comes to early childhood education.
World Class Teachers Internationally qualified native speaking teachers
All of our teaching staff are enthusiastic, energetic, qualified, native English, Putonghua and Cantonese speaking Early Childhood Educators who are committed to working in a dynamic environment. They are recruited from all around the world including Europe, North America, and Asia. As lifelong learners, striving for excellence in Early Years Education, our teachers participate regularly in structured professional development opportunities. These include seminars and workshops conducted by experts from the International Baccalaureate Organization, project developers from Columbia University Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, and specialist early childhood educators from overseas or Mainland China.
