Two Form Six students will go to Scotland for two weeks to promote Chinese culture and experience life in Europe thanks to a scholarship from the Rotary Club of Tai Po. Law Ting Pong Secondary student Florence Cheung Choi-ki, 17, and Mabel Chu Yin-ting, 18, of Immanuel Lutheran College, will fly to Scotland on May 20. They will stay with a host family until June 4 under the arrangement with the Rotary Club of Kirkcaldy, Scotland. The international service director of the Rotary Club of Tai Po, Donald Chan Wai-kee, said the scholarship provides an opportunity for cultural exchange. Two Scottish students will come to Hong Kong in September. During the selection process, Mabel and Florence had to write and present a proposal on how to promote Chinese culture in Scotland and how to arrange activities for the Scottish students when they come. Mabel said she would put emphasis on traditional Chinese calligraphy and architecture when she is in Scotland. 'Because these two forms of art are very different from the western ones,' Mabel said. 'In the West, all words are formed by 26 alphabets which determine the pronunciations, but in China, we have so many different characters - it's a totally different language system. 'Also, in the West buildings are usually made with bricks. but in traditional Chinese architecture, most of the buildings are made of wood without using even a single nail.' Florence was very excited that she would be attending the high school there. This will be her first trip to Europe. When the Scottish students come to Hong Kong, she said she wanted to take them to visit local schools. She would also like to invite her schoolmates to do a joint project with the Scottish students on the cultural differences between Hong Kong and Scotland. 'I think doing a joint project would be a good way to let us understand each other more,' she said. The Rotary Club of Hong Kong has been operating since 1930 and was chartered by Rotary International in 1931.
