EdUHK and CAS Sign MoU to Nurture Young Generations
The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) and The Civil Aid Service (CAS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) today (January 29). They will collaborate to nurture Hong Kong’s young generations by providing multi-faceted learning and exchange opportunities over the next five years.
Witnessed by the President Professor John Lee Chi-Kin and the Dean of Students Dr Sammy Hui King-fai of EdUHK, the Under Secretary for Security Mr Michael Cheuk Hau-yip and the Commissioner of the CAS Mr Lo Yan-lai, the MoU was signed by Vice-President (Research and Development) of EdUHK Professor Chetwyn Chan Che-hin and the Chief Staff Officer of the CAS Mr Leung Kwun-hong.
Under the new partnership, EdUHK plans to hold seminars and workshops for CAS members and cadets regularly, to share research findings which can help them maintain both physical and mental health for peak performance. Meanwhile, the CAS will hold experiential learning activities for EdUHK students to improve their fitness, discipline, leadership skills, co-operation and teamwork, emergency response capability and resilience.
Professor Lee said that EdUHK has been putting effort into whole-person education to promote youth development. He believes that the CAS and EdUHK can capitalise on each other’s strengths through this collaboration, to nurture future leaders who are confident, competent and committed to society and the country.
Hoping that the collaboration will enrich young people’s understanding of government departments, Mr Cheuk said the CAS could provide EdUHK students with training and experiences with the characteristics of disciplined services, to help more young people in Hong Kong broaden their horizons, unleash their potential and develop positive thinking.
