AGROUP of teachers, parents and Form Five students enjoyed a morning at the Li Po Chun United World College of Hong Kong recently. Founded in September 1992, the college threw open its doors to the public in order to introduce the campus and the aims of United World Colleges world-wide. Ms Francine Kwong Wing-ting, chairman of the United World Colleges Hong Kong Ex-Students' Association, which organised the open day, said students who attended the college invariably felt that this was an invaluable experience which they would like to see more students enjoy. ''We would like to offer them the opportunity to apply,'' said Ms Kwong, who studied her sixth and seventh form at the United World College of the Atlantic in Britain. ''I became very close friends with people from all over the world. We have stayed in touch though it has been about seven years since we were at school. ''The academic programme was very important to me and enabled me to study subjects which I would not have been able to do in Hong Kong.'' When Ms Kwong was in Form Four and Five, she was a science student at Maryknoll Convent School. ''However, when I entered Oxford University I majored in Philosophy, Politics and Economics,'' she said. Visitors at open day heard a speech by Ms Kwong. She explained that the aim of the college movement was to make education a force to unite nations and people. She said the colleges combined this aim with the provision of an academic and all-round education of high standard. All follow the International Baccalaureate curriculum in their senior secondary years. Dr David Wilkinson, principal of the college, explained the application procedure to interested students and emphasised that entry to United World Colleges was based on merit. He said scholarships and financial aids were available. At the moment, about 210 students are enrolled at Li Po Chun United World College and around 10 students from Hong Kong each year attend colleges all over the world. The college aims to take in about 125 students next year. The college, provides a fully residential, two-year, pre-university education leading to the International Baccalaureate diploma. The diploma is a university entry qualification accepted by universities and polytechnics in Hong Kong and elsewhere.
