We take pride in our neighborhood, a popular design enclave and cultural hotspot that deepens our curriculum and broadens student learning. Our Innovation Program encourages hands-on creation and will take advantage of the multitude of stores in Sham Shui Po which sell fabrics, fashion accessories, machinery parts, and crafts and supplies that attract designers, tinkerers, makers of all kinds – and there are even abundant heritage shops with vintage treasures. Right across the street from the school is the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre, a multidisciplinary cultural venue that offers creative talent affordable arts studio and display facilities, including a black box theater. From ceramics, photography and Chinese ink painting studios to G.O.D.’s HK Street Cultural Gallery, this nearby hub presents rich opportunities to expose Bloom students to the creative arts and practicing artists. The exhibitions and events on Hong Kong’s history and development at Mei Ho House museum and the former North Kowloon Magistracy are also only 5-7 minutes away on foot.
Bloom students learn to care, think, and act not only within the school premise but also beyond, and they do so even during school hours. Our teachers and students embark on weekly excursions, from visits to organic farms and the Wetland Park to science experiments at the Aberdeen Reservoirs. We engage community partners to foster student agency and inspire student purpose. Lower-grade students, for instance, have neighborhood service opportunities, and upper-grade students carry out projects with a community of entrepreneurs at CoCoon and the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park. They make sense of what they have learned in the classroom out in the real world and bring back questions, observations, and ideas that motivate them to pursue learning within the classroom.
