Harbour School – Innovation Journey
From its 50-foot sailboat and marine science program to its social action rock videos, two-story treehouse, and student-designed interactive lounge, The Harbour School Hong Kong is full of fun and innovative ideas. But the difficult thing is not to have a good idea – or even many good ideas. The difficult thing is to create a culture of innovation in which new ideas are welcomed and celebrated and in which students, teachers and parents feel that their ideas will be valued and quite probably implemented. In a world in which the tendency is to fear rejection or judgement, the creation, support and maintenance of a culture of innovation requires a purposeful, proactive and collaborative approach.
