She further emphasized that the objectives of “Weave a Dream Project” are beautifully in line with the Department’s mission and strategies and the Department is proud to provide the context, support and expertise for its implementation.

In the ceremony, guest speakers Mr. Charles Ho, Global Training Manager, MTR Corporation Limited, and Mrs. Christine Lau, Founder and Chairperson of Character Education Foundation shared themes of “Hope” to encourage students in pursuing their own dream.
