A STRONG devotion to the Chinese national sport of wushu won Hui Chung Sing Memorial School the Outstanding SportDesign Project championship organised by Hong Kong Sports Development Board. Entitled ''Guidance and Counselling Through Wushu'', the project was the brainchild of teachers Ng Chang-kwong and Tsui Mei-wah, who now have a chance to study junior sports activities overseas. The competition is one of five major activities of the Hongkong Telecom Go!Sport Programme - a three-year project aimed at providing more opportunities for primary and secondary students to engage in sports after school hours. Mr Ng said: ''During the six months of our wushu project, we succeeded in helping the participants realise that it takes patience and not extraordinary talent to learn and polish wushu skills.'' He stressed that a good foundation for participants, with the right posture and gestures was what the project had tried to achieve. The other four activities of the Go!Sport project are EasySport, SportCaptain, SportCamp/SportClinic and SportSpeak. The board's Sports Development Manager Cindy Leung Wan-yin described EasySport as a programme in which ''participation rather than the search of special sports talent is the ultimate goal''. About 28 primary schools have been selected as demonstration schools under the project for their ability to practise the simple-to-follow regulations provided in the EasySport Resources Manual. ''The manual simplifies the rather complex rules of fencing, tennis, soccer and table tennis. This enables students to learn the basic skills and have some fun too,'' said Ms Leung. The board plans to include rugby, basketball, wushu and netball in its EasySport project over the next couple of years. Ms Leung said the main aim of the programme was not to assign external helpers to primary schools but to help assist them in managing the training themselves. ''We want to help those (primary schools) who like to help themselves,'' she said.
