Children as young as four will be taught about being Chinese and that the SAR is an 'inalienable part of China'. The Committee on the Promotion of Civic Education yesterday released a booklet entitled I Am Chinese. It aims to promote children's understanding of the mainland. The richly illustrated booklet is designed for children aged between four and six. Surveys have shown that when children become teenagers, they consider themselves distinctly Hong Kong citizens, rather than Chinese, and that they know little about Chinese culture and lifestyle. 'The booklet presents the basic concept that the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is an inalienable part of China in a simple and easy-to-understand way,' a committee spokesman said. 'It elaborates on the National Day, the National Flag, the Regional Flag, and the lifestyles of people in Hong Kong and the mainland. 'With the guidance of parents and teachers, it is hoped that the children could have a better understanding of their national identity and, in turn, develop a stronger sense of belonging to China.'
