Thank you everyone for participating in this competition. After a vigorous selection process, the judging panel picked the following submissions as the top 5 entries. Dr Eugene Birman from the Department of Music has also given detailed comments to each of them to show our appreciation. We are truly amazed by Hong Kong secondary school students’ creativity during this exceptionally difficult period of time. Thanks again, congratulations, and take care!
In response to the university’s announcement that all face-to-face classes will be suspended until further notice, we would like to offer instructors a few guidelines regarding the contingency plans for your service-learning projects.
The exhibition, held in CISL’s co-working space TriAngle, consisted of two main sections. One section introduced 30+ service-learning courses and non-credit bearing projects, and the other section displayed works and deliverables inspired by students in previous service-learning courses, revolving around the themes of the sea, the sky and the land. We – our empathetic endeavours – are literally everywhere!
CISL has been actively seeking collaborations with secondary schools on meaningful projects. On 15 Jan 2020, we introduced service-learning to twelve principals and teachers from secondary schools in a talk titled “When secondary school and university students meet: the impact of Service-Learning”. One particular purpose of the function was to recruit and secure partnerships with secondary schools for General Education Level 3 Service-Learning courses to be rolled out in AY2020-21. How delightful it is to learn that many participants are keen to collaborate with HKBU. Let’s continue to spread empathy and compassion to our next generation!
Over 30 students and colleagues gathered at TriAngle to make sachets on 14 Jan. The instructors from Aroma Office are in their golden age, and participants enjoyed and learned a lot from their expertise. This also echoes to one of the aims of Aroma Office: the promotion of inclusion and diversity.
