Sing Tao reported that EdUHK collaborated with Salesians of Don Bosco Ng Siu Mui Secondary School in the Jackfruit Festival, a traditional celebration in Kwong Pan Tin Village in Tsuen Wan.
Besides understanding the history and culture of Kwong Pan Tin Village, the event also let EdUHK students, participating teachers, and students experience again the close relationship between “community” and “learning”.
Dr Gail Yuen Wai Kwan, Associate Professor of the Department of Education Policy and Leadership said that the University wished to promote non-formal experiences that extend learning beyond the classroom through participating in the event.
The paper also talked to Felix Chung, a Year 2 student of BEd(CL) who had participated in the event as a tour guide. He said he learned more about the history of the village through the event.
