The Director of Leisure and Cultural Services has encouraged students to take part in recreational and cultural activities to improve their health and minds. Speaking at the Buddhist Mau Fung Memorial College open day, Paul Leung Sai-wah said making the most of the department's activities would lead to a fuller life. 'Education is a comprehensive process which is not only aimed at instilling knowledge but also at developing an individual's full potential,' he said. 'Students should expose themselves to different forms of art, such as music drama, literature and fine arts, and cultivate their interest in the arts.' He said Hong Kong's well- stocked public libraries could broaden students' interests beyond their school curriculum and quench their thirst for knowledge. Hong Kong's excellent museums, he said, covered many topics from art and history to science and space and offered an insight into world both old and new, Asian and Western. In addition, the department also organises various exhibitions and performing arts programs as well as instrumental training classes for the promotion of arts and cultural activities. Mr Leung also encouraged students to develop their interest in sport. He said regular exercise was good for health and recommended swimming, soccer, table tennis and tennis. 'Healthy people are better able to cope with challenges,' he said.
