HONG KONG Community College (HKCC) students spent a day with non-ethnic Chinese children and their parents as part of the Asia Link - Cultural Integration Scheme. The scheme is a joint effort by the HKCC, the police, SKH Lady MacLehose Centre and the Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council. Nearly 50 HKCC students acted as volunteers during last Thursday's programme. They showed the children and their parents around their Hunghom campus, and took them to the beauty, language and computer labs. The visitors spent an enjoyable day experiencing Chinese culture, including attending calligraphy lessons and translating their names into Chinese. The children also tried out nail art, hand treatment and computer games. Besides the fun day, the scheme also offers English language courses for non-ethnic Chinese women, Cantonese and summer tutorial classes for school children, as well as cultural exchange tours. 'We put strong emphasis on nurturing students' holistic development as well as enhancing their academic performance,' said HKCC director Simon Leung. 'Our students' participation in the scheme adds value to their summer holidays in a meaningful way.'
