  7. 7. 7 A. Bowen Road Story Board In your groups of four ensure each person takes a role: 1. A member to demonstrate the exercise 2. Someone to record this (video or photo) 3. Someone to write how the exercise equipment works 4. Someone to interview the peer about the effectiveness of the equipment Evaluating the fitness trail and facilities on Bowen Road. When you reach this sign find out what this chart means and explain the recommendation given. What is the title of this chart? Do you think this is accurate information? Create a storyboard of the fitness trail exercises on Bowen Road giving instructions for each of the exercises. Here are two examples of the exercises available. What are there called and how do you use this? Now photograph the rest of the exercises and explain how to use them.
  8. 8. 8 This equipment/ facility is extremely effective. Strongly disagree Disagree Agree Strongly agree Equipment Description Effectiveness What recommendations and adaptations do you have as consequence of this activity?
  9. 9. 9 B. Aberdeen Risk Assessment The Aberdeen Hike Route Directions with Risk Assessment 1. Start at Wan Chai Gap. Take the path/road marked 'Black's Link' for approximately 1.2km until you reach a pavilion on your right. 2. At the pavilion turn right onto the Hong Kong trail taking stone steps downhill. Be careful of a drop on the left side. 3. Continue on the Hong Kong trail for about 500m until you reach a viewpoint with a picture board pointing out places from Violet Hill to Ocean Park. 4.

After 100m you will see a turn off to the right, which is a picnic area and a pebble path for foot massage. You are already in Aberdeen Country Park. 11. After another 100m you will see a map board on your right. Go straight on ignoring the left turn. 12.You will soon arrive at a large barbecue area with tables and another pebble path.

  10. 10. 10 The Minimum Wage Lunch Challenge in Aberdeen Each group of 2 now joins forces with another to form a group of 4. It would be ideal if at least one person in your group could speak or read at least some Cantonese. You must now effectively collaborate using your risk conscious way of thinking to overcome the following tasks in safety. As a group of four you must work together to complete the following data collection tasks in a short amount of time. You must stay together as a group throughout this activity. This is an imaginary activity as you would have snacked on your hike earlier in the day. You will return to school in time for your own lunch as normal. You would have been hiking for just over two hours. Imagine if you were a blue collar employee in Hong Kong. The HK government has set the minimum wage for this year at $28 per hour. As it nearly lunchtime in Aberdeen, imagine you had earned just $52 and you wanted to treat yourself you a decent lunch, after all you have been labouring hard for the past two hours! You need to photo/ video log and record your choices and add up the cost of your various purchases. Aberdeen Town Centre has many dining opportunities. Within the confines of the town centre itself search for the best healthy options to spend your $52 on a good lunch. The three options you should research are 1. Take away options What can $52 buy you at a convenience store like 7Eleven or Circle K What take away outlets offer healthy food? (e.g. do Mcdonald's sell salad?) Do any supermarkets offer take away food choices? 2. Eat in options What healthy options can you buy from budget chains like Cafe de Coral and Pizza Hut? What do locally run budget restaurants offer? 3. Cook at home options Now imagine you were shopping for foods for lunch that you took home to cook. What healthy foods could you buy to cook from wet markets, or supermarkets or markets stalls
  11. 11. 11 Assessing your data On your return to school consider the following points to respond to How do you assess the nutritional quality of your choices made during this challenge? On reflection is it healthier to dine in or out in Aberdeen? On reflection is it cheaper to dine in or out in Aberdeen? Is $52 enough cash to buy your lunch? Is the minimum wage too high or too low?
  12. 12. 12 C. Po Kong Village Road Park http://www.lcsd.gov.hk/parks/pkvrp/en/index.php There are two activities for this excursion: 1) Evaluation Po Kong Village Road Park is new Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) Park with 14 different activities.

The cycling facilities are open free-of-charge for cyclists of all ages and different skill levels.

  14. 14. 14 D. Hong Kong EcoPark Visitors Centre http://www.ecopark.com.hk/en/visitors.aspx You will be working in groups to answer the following questions. Think about the following aspects of your collaborative skills: contributions, time management, focus on the task, problem solving, preparedness, monitoring group effectiveness and working with others. What are the Eco challenges the Hong Kong faces? How informative is the Ecopark Visitor Centre? Why or why not? Is the Ecopark Vistors’ Centre enough to educate HK citizens about being eco-friendly? How eco-friendly is the average HK citizen in comparison to other nations? How do you know this? What change can you action as response to what you have observed? Will you change any of your habits based on today’s excursion?
