Students of Lingnan secondary schools taste university life
02 Jul 2017
Lingnan University organised the “Experience in Lingnan University” together with Lingnan Dr Chung Wing Kwong Memorial Secondary School, Lingnan Hang Yee Memorial Secondary School and Lingnan Secondary School from 2 to 4 July on the campus of Lingnan. Some 90 students from the three secondary schools joined the event, which showcased the strong bond of the reunion of the Lingnan family. The event was generously supported by the Lingnan Education Organization (LEO), which aims to offer opportunities for secondary students to experience liberal arts education as well as the vibrant living-and-learning environment at Lingnan through a rich array of lectures, programmes and hostel experience.
To introduce our comprehensive liberal arts curriculum, four lectures covering areas of English, Arts, Business and Social Sciences were given to the students. Ms Rachel Lai Sui-yee, Senior Language Instructor of the Centre for English and Additional Languages delivered an English lecture on essential skills and tactics for effective negotiation. Prof Martin Yick Ho-yin, Assistant Professor of Teaching of the Department of Finance and Insurance outlined our Risk and Insurance Management Programme while explaining different definitions of risks. The participants also attended a lecture about memory by Dr Victoria Hui Ka-ying, Lecturer of the Department of Applied Psychology, and another one on Chinese art by Prof Sophia Law Suk-mun, Associate Professor of the Department of Visual Studies.
The Programme’s kick-off ceremony on 2 July was officiated by the Secretary General of LEO, Mr Lui Ngok-che. During the 3-day programme, participating students joined the Integrated Learning Programme (ILP) which is one of the signature co-curricular programmes in the University to facilitate students’ learning beyond classroom. They also took part in team-building activities, campus tours, sharing sessions by our student volunteers, a treasure hunt in the Library, an introductory talk on admission requirements by Registry and a visit to the Fu Tei Bookstore. At the closing ceremony, Prof Joshua Mok Ka-ho, Vice-President and Lam Man Tsan Chair Professor of Comparative Policy greeted the youngsters while Mr Patrick Wong Chi-kwong, Chairman of LEO, made the closing remarks.
In the sharing session, student representatives expressed their gratitude for the chance to know more about Lingnan University’s study and hostel life, which helps them set concrete goals for their university studies.
