Youth Summit 2018
stepping into journey towards the forth decade...
Witnessing the success of our ancestors across the past three decades, the 31st Executive Committee aspires to perpetuate the distinctiveness of the association and break new ground in the upcoming year.
Our flagship external project, Youth Summit, has been held continuously for years and aroused strong repercussions among students. The Project has been renowned for its representation in debating on controversial current affairs. It is one of the largest platforms for secondary students that sheds lights on understanding and accepting the pluralism of the Hong Kong society.
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.’ Some say education is a one-size-fits-all model, a gigantic machinery where every one of us are scored, assessed, our achievements kept tally of. This summer, we are ready to dive deep and get to the bottom of doubts: Is the current education system undermining creativity? Is STEAM going to take us to the next level? Do Special and Gifted Education really cater to corresponding students? Are students put under too much academic pressure? Come on an EdVenture and find out!
