In order to cultivate students' empathy for the elderly and encourage them to serve the community, especially the elderly from The Yan Chai Hospital Fong Yock Yee Neighbourhood Elderly Centre, our School has set up the "TWGSS Elder Academy" and arranged for students to participate in community services for the elderly.
In the first school term, our students introduced STEM tools (mobile phone stands) and explained health knowledge as well as the history of Hong Kong to the elderly. To make the activities interesting, puzzle playing and painting sessions were held. Both our students and the elderly had fun and enjoyed the time they spent together.
Our meeting schedules in the first school term are as follows:
1. 19 Oct 2022 Introduction to STEM tools and A talk on the history of Hong Kong
2. 24 Nov 2022 Painting on ceramic
3. 21 Dec 2022 A talk on health knowledge
4. 18 Jan 2023 Fun Fun Bowling
