This page regularly highlights the new resources provided by the Geography Unit. For instance, you can refer to the Catalogue of Geography Videos and Lesson Ideas for quality Geography videos and accompanying lesson ideas for teachers’ use. Spanning both physical and human geography topics, as well as Lower to Upper Secondary, teachers would be able to find a video that suit their teaching purpose. Another resource is the GeoActive Online files. GeoActive Online files are published by a UK company according to the UK GCSE syllabus (the equivalent of our 'O' and 'N' Level syllabuses), these GeoActive Online files are textual materials which teachers may use to supplement their lessons, distribute to students as case studies,  use the suggested activities within each file with students, and also for general knowledge. Do check this page regularly for new updates.
