Forging links with secondary schools

Michael Woloschuk


In an effort to better understand the needs of today's students and to foster a deeper co-operative spirit with local secondary schools, CityU today welcomed five Hong Kong secondary school principals to the campus. Three of the visiting schools were also represented by three career masters.

The visit, one of the many activities organized by the Offices for Institutional Advancement, is designed to improve channels of communication and create a dialogue between the University and Hong Kong's secondary schools.

Representatives from the six secondary schools-Mr Mok Chung Fai and
Mr Wong Sing Yiu of Buddhist Hung Sean Chau Memorial College,
Mr Ng Wai Cheong of Confucian Ho Kwok Pui Chun College, Ms Fung Lin Foon and Mrs Tang Choi Pik Chau of Hotung Secondary School, Mrs Cheung Lam Lai King and Mr Chan Tze Ying of Queen's College, Ms Dora Chan Lai Yin of S.K.H. Leung Kwai Yee Secondary School, and
Sister Damian Lai of St Paul's Secondary School- were given an exclusive campus tour by Professor Y S Wong, Vice-President for Institutional Advancement.The highlight of their tour included visits to the Run Run Shaw Library and the School of Creative Media.

"This tour gives us a chance to show off our world-class facilities and programmes," said Professor Wong. "It also allows us to find out what secondary schools are thinking in terms of the future educational needs of their students."

In the past academic year, 28 school principals, on five separate visits, have toured the campus. Beginning later this year, the programme will expand to see CityU staff visiting local secondary schools, to better understand the needs of today's students.
