Cross-cultural IES Award Presentation Ceremony

An Award Presentation Ceremony was held in the Faculty of
Education for the presentations by groups of secondary Chinese
and ethnic minority students who have jointly carried out some
Independent Enquiry Studies (IES) on cross-cultural issues/topics. The students have interesting stories to tell the majority and minority population of Hong Kong about cross-cultural understanding and integration. Their studies cover topics like home, family, marriage, food and education across cultures.

This Award Scheme is part of the service of the USP Project (2011-13). The Full name is “University-school Support Programme:Supporting Secondary Schools in the Teaching and Learning of Chinese for non-native learners”, and it is carried out by the Centre for Advancement of Chinese Language Education and Research, Faculty of Education, HKU. –  The Award Scheme is organized with the assistance of the Liberal Studies Service Learning Network, a student volunteer group in the Faculty of Education, and other undergraduate students in the Faculty.
