教育學系舉辦「長幼同行成長路」閉幕禮

The Department of Education Studies (EDUC) held a consolidation event for the “Promoting Positive Youth Development through School-University-Elderly Learning Community” project on 19 May.

Over 200 people including HKBU President Professor Roland Chin, Dean of Faculty of Social Sciences Professor Adrian Bailey, HKBU students, secondary school principals, teachers and students, together with community centre representatives and older adults took part in the event. Highlights of the consolidation event included the presentation of caring certificates to university students and certificates of appreciation to representatives of the collaborating schools and community centres, and a review of the learning experiences gained by the young and old participants from the four intergenerational learning circles.

In his speech, Professor Chin recognised the contribution of the project in facilitating collaboration and mutual learning among university students, secondary school students and older adults and in providing HKBU students with opportunities to extend the caring culture of the University and bring it into the community.

The two-year project funded by the Quality Education Fund is led by Professor Atara Sivan, Head of EDUC, and Professor Vicky Tam, Associate Head of EDUC. Professor Sivan highlighted the learning community’s unique features: being inclusive and educational. Participants not only gained knowledge and skills but also learned to respect and appreciate one another. She was confident that the experiences gained through the project will have a long-lasting impact on the community.

Eight secondary schools, namely HKTA The Yuen Yuen Institute No.1 Secondary School, Homantin Government Secondary School, Lee Kau Yan Memorial School, Lung Cheung Government Secondary School, Maryknoll Fathers’ School, SKH Holy Carpenter Secondary School, SKH St. Benedict’s School, Tack Ching Girls’ Secondary School and four social service organisations including HKSKH Lok Man Alice Kwok Integrated Service Centre, Kowloon City Baptist Church Neighbourhood Elderly Centre (Lok Fu), Kowloon City Baptist Church Neighbourhood Elderly Centre (Lung Cheung), and SKH Holy Carpenter Church District Elderly Community Centre took part in the project.
