IT Campaign --- i.SPORt Competition 2001
What is IT Campaign? This must sound unfamiliar even to many OSArs, since this is a new activity organized in session 2000-2001. In recent years, in view of the application of information technology in various aspects and to prepare our teenagers to adapt to this change, the Hong Kong government has been actively involved in a series of plans that advocate the use of IT in learning. This enables students to master many new computing skills. In session 2000-2001, for the first time in our history, we joined hands with a computer magazine in organizing this “i.SPORt Competition 2001”. Our objective is to promote quality education, to let competitors use IT in day to day’s learning and in the process of cooperating with others. We hope to raise the public’s awareness to recreational sports and healthy lifestyle. The competition is divided into secondary and primary category, tertiary category and open section. Competing teams are required to produce a short video clip or animation on a topic related to sports. The judging panel comprises distinguished representatives from the fields of sports and IT.
Leadership Training Seminar 2000 – Resilience
The Leadership Training Seminar was launched since 198?, and has been held with a special theme every year to promote the qualities of a leader among Hong Kong students. This year, our theme was ‘Resilience’, which means the ability to recover under adverse situations. Two seminars on related topics were held. In addition, participants from various schools were involved in games, debates, group discussions and presentations. This provided them with the chance to share their own thoughts with each other so as to broaden their horizons. They also enjoyed themselves through cooperation and teamwork.
Future Young Leader’s Forum
The Outstanding Young Persons’ Association and the Education Department jointly organized the “Future Young Leaders’ Forum” on 25th and 26th September 2000 for over two thousand senior secondary school students. Representatives of the Hong Kong Outstanding Students’ Association were invited to be reporting secretaries on the second day. We presented a summary on the content of the six group discussion sessions on the second day. The Outstanding Young Person speakers had also opened our eyes to invaluable insights and personal experience regarding how to become a capable leader.
