SPCC X HKU X Mark Hayes: #WhileIBreatheIHope Video

Following the #StayHome&MakeMusic video which generated much positivity and heartwarming sentiments in our community and beyond, the College is proud to present another blockbuster video – #WhileIBreatheIHope, which hopes to spread love further and farther through music. Both of these videos have now kickstarted the LoveHKLoveU campaign presented by the University of Hong Kong (HKU).

Curated by the College’s Music Director, this latest video features renowned American composer, Mr. Mark Hayes, along with student representatives from the Treble and Senior Mixed Voice Choirs as well as alumni, staff and Council members of the College and Primary School. The College wishes to express its gratitude to all these St. Paulians for their contributions to this meaningful cause.

This video is dedicated to all healthcare workers who worked selflessly and tirelessly to keep us safe during this pandemic.

Chemistry
Mission

Chemistry, like other science electives, will provide a platform for developing scientific literacy and for building essential scientific knowledge and skills for lifelong learning in science and technology. Chemistry deals with the composition, structures and properties of matter, the interactions between different types of matter, and the relationship between matter and energy. Through the learning of chemistry, it is possible to acquire relevant conceptual and procedural knowledge. A study of chemistry also helps to develop understanding and appreciation of developments in engineering, medicine and other related scientific and technological fields. Furthermore, learning about the contributions, issues and problems related to innovations in chemistry will help students develop an understanding of the relationship between science, technology, society and the environment.

Curriculum Goals

The broad aims of the Chemistry Curriculum are to enable students to:

  • develop interest and maintain a sense of wonder and curiosity about chemistry;
  • construct and apply knowledge of chemistry, and appreciate the relationship between chemistry and other disciplines;
  • appreciate and understand the evolutionary nature of science;
  • develop skills for making scientific inquiries;
  • develop the ability to think scientifically, critically and creatively, and solve problems individually and collaboratively in chemistry-related contexts;
  • discuss science-related issues using the language of chemistry;
  • make informed decisions and judgements on chemistry-related issues;
  • develop open-mindedness, objectivity and pro-activeness;
  • show appropriate awareness of working safely;
  • understand and evaluate the social, ethical, economic, environmental and technological implications of chemistry, and develop an attitude of responsible citizenship.
