“Heart-warming Figures in School” Sharing Activity

[English version for reference only]

As part of EDUHK’s 30th anniversary celebrations, we are launching the “Heart-warming Figures in School” sharing activity to promote a culture of care and gratitude in the school community.  Students from kindergartens, primary schools, secondary schools and special schools are invited to submit true stories of touching moments or acts demonstrating care of students by any teaching staff or supporting staff members in their schools which they have experienced or witnessed.

Eligibility
  • Divided into 4 categories: Kindergartens, Primary Schools, Secondary Schools and Special Schools
  • All current students of the above 4 categories of schools in Hong Kong are welcome to participate. Each student may submit one true story of heart-warming act(s) by a particular staff member of his/her school, including but not limited to school principals, teachers, administrative and support staff, workmen, school bus drivers, etc.  Consent of the related staff member must be sought.
