Student Leaders of Tomorrow Scheme 2005

 

Introduction

The theme of this year's Student Leaders of Tomorrow Scheme is "Sweat and Tears on the Road to Success". We aim at inspiring participants' values and roles of comprising society as a preparation of future's career and commitment to the society, and at the same time providing an opportunity for student leaders to learn how to face challenges in their lives. From interviewing eminent leaders of our community, participants can also learn from their experiences and therefore set their own goals and missions. This scheme commenced in late November 2004 when two workshops were held in order to enhance the interviewing and reporting skills of participants. Starting from January 2005, participants had chances to interview outstanding leaders from different sectors of our society, e.g. politics, government, culture, sports, business, social welfare, entertainment, etc. Sharing sessions were held regularly for participants to gain further knowledge from these interviews. A book, which is a collection of the thoughts and reports written by the participants, was alsopublished so as to facilitate the exchange of ideas among participants and to share their learning experiences with the public.

 

Day 1 and 2

The participants gathered in the lecture hall of Diocesan Boys' School on 28th December - Day ONE of SLT. The freezing weather had not cooled their warm and anticipating hearts. The programme started off with a speech given by Mr. Donald Sham, the president of the Hong Kong Outstanding Students' Association. We were honoured to have invited Dr. Donna Chu, the General Education Officer of the General Education Unit of the University of Hong Kong, along with senior reporter, Ms. Phoebe, to conduct a workshop on interviewing skills. Mr. L.Y. Sung also accepted our invitation and gave a talk on presentation skills. Mr. Sung is the chairman of the Chinese Sub-committee of the Hong Kong Schools Music and Speech Festival.

 

Participants came back for another day of learning on 29th December - Day TWO of SLT. They had the chance to learn project management skills in the workshop conducted by Mr. George Lung, the past chairman of the Outstanding Young Persons Association. To finish the day, a talk was given by Ms. Doreen Leung, an awardee of the Outstanding Persons of the World, on leadership skills. Ms. Leung shared her thoughts and views on skills that a leader should possess and taught us all the proper way of treating other people.

Volunteer Training Scheme 2005

 

Introduction

The Volunteer Training Scheme (VTS) has always been a memorable sparkle in the Association's calendar and it receives tremendous support and attention from the educational sector now and then. The theme of this year's Volunteer Training Scheme is "SamariTEENs' Effect".

 

The word "SamariTEENS" is derived from the story of a Good Samaritan in the bible. In the story, the Good Samaritan shows his unconditional and selfless love towards the one who is in need. As a student organization, the HKOSA is always keen on developing talents in teenagers who will be serving the community as future leaders. Through the VTS, we want to help teenagers understand more about their roles in society. We expect the VTS to nurture and embed in the participants the heart and vision to serve the community by strengthening their personal qualities that are most essential when doing voluntary services. We hope participants can foresee the effect they could bring out when doing social services, and we believe these are the very essence of personal development and imperative for the future success of teenagers.

Hong Kong Youth Summit 2005

 

The Hong Kong Youth Summit 2005 has been successfully held in March and April 2005. It aims at cultivating students' social conscience and awareness, and provides a channel for the direct reflection of students' opinions and views to the government. We hope through lectures, discussions, visits and resolution drafting, participants can realize that they can make a difference and contribute to the betterment of Hong Kong.

 

This is the 3rd year the HKOSA holds the Hong Kong Youth Summit. This year, our focus is on education, and the theme is "Future in Action". Participants have assumed different roles such as "Teachers", "School Authority", and "Parents", etc. to discuss on local education issues. Our objectives are to arouse students' social awareness, and at the same time stimulate them to look into education issues comprehensively from different viewpoints. This activity has undoubtedly broaden the participants' perspective, and train their skills in expressing themselves in an effective way.

 

We are very glad to have the Hong Kong Youth Summit to be supported by the Wofoo Social Enterprises (WSE) this year. Wofoo Social Enterprises is a not-for-profit entity that advocates and exemplifies the entrepreneurial approach to delivering quality social services through mobilising social capital. WSE strives with its partners to attain the goal of "Harmony amongst people to Build Prosperity of our Home and Country" by effective use of resources and network support.

Interflow Camp 2005

 

With the bright summer days just around the corner, the Hong Kong Outstanding Students' Association cordially invites students from Form Three to Form Five to participate in our masterpiece of the holidays, the Interflow Camp 2005 –Teens' Unlimited.

 

Inaugurated in 1987, the Hong Kong Outstanding Students' Association is a non-profit student organization which strives to encourage progress and pursuit of real joy in serving the Hong Kong community by stimulating student development in all aspects and participation in social services and charitable causes.

 

The Interflow Camp is always a memorable sparkle in the Associations calendar and receives tremendous support and attention from the educational sector every year. With such bolstering in mind, the Interflow Camp was once again offered and took place from 26th July 2005 to 28th July 2005 at the Wu Kwai Sha Youth Village.

 

Every teenager has unlimited potentials and inner qualities, so by understanding more about themselves, teenagers would be able to soar beyond and think globally with their unlimited enthusiasm, spirit and confidence, and this is the aim of our camp. Through the Camp, we expect our participants to be more conscientious, to take a more pro-active role in global issues, and to act locally to serve the Hong Kong community.
