Learning about the Woo Cheong Pawn Shop was fun for students.
Learning about the Woo Cheong Pawn Shop was fun for students.

Energetic S3 students from King Ling College visited Wan Chai on a geography field trip. They hoped to learn about how urban renewal projects have shaped that district.

There are four renewal stages: tear down old buildings and replace them with new ones; restore old buildings to their earlier condition; take care of the buildings; and upgrade the area around them.

The first stop was the Blue House Cluster. It is a Grade 1 historical building. It was interesting to see Chinese-style tenement buildings, especially those built before the second world war. Our teacher, Miss Lee, talked about their history, and we looked at the displays on the ground floor.

Other buildings we visited were the Old Wan Chai Post Office, and the Woo Cheong Pawn Shop.

The post office was built around 1912. It was interesting to see how it is being cared for.

Learning outside the classroom is interesting. We actually see what teachers are talking about, so it is always more meaningful.
