Ghina Rahardjo, five, puts the finishing touches to a poster she helped design along with other pupils at the Wembley International Kindergarten in Taikoo Shing. 'I like the harbour and I want it to be clean and beautiful,' Ghina told president of the Friends of the Harbour, Hilary Chu Wei-ling, who was visiting. The 40 pupils at the Wembley International Kindergarten were asked by teachers to express their views about the proposed Victoria Harbour reclamation project. 'We started the protection campaign a week ago because we see the need to let children know more about the harbour,' said kindergarten principal Jean Afford. 'Our pupils see news about the harbour on the TV and most of them have to cross it every day. Children are very sensitive and they have very tender feelings for nature. Some of them asked me why people had to mess up the harbour when it was so beautiful.' The school invited Ms Chu to give a talk on environmental awareness and the Victoria Harbour as part of Hong Kong's heritage. 'It is very encouraging to see children with such passion for the harbour,' she said. Also pictured are Vivian Kwok Wai-yan, four (left), and Natalie Lam Qian-yu, five.
