The Affiliated School of JNU for Hong Kong & Macau Students (“ASJ”) delegation, led by Mr Johnathan Lai, Chief Principal, visited our College (YCCECE) on November 3, 2023. This visit marked an exciting exchange of education philosophy and insights between ASJ and YCCECE.
ASJ, an international school established under the backdrop of the Greater Bay Area and the Pilot Demonstration Area, holds the distinction of being the first school for Hong Kong and Macau students in the Greater Bay Area under the auspices of a renowned university – Jinan University.
During their visit, the delegation had the opportunity to explore our College's Tin Wan campus, including our unique Discovery Space—an innovative exploring space that serves as a living lab for student projects, research endeavors, and community activities. The delegation was captivated by the College's commitment to fostering a dynamic and engaging learning environment.
Engaging in fruitful discussions, the ASJ delegation engaged with our College President Professor Allan Yuen, faculty members and students, sharing valuable insights and exchanging ideas on educational practices, academic programs, and innovative teaching methodologies. The visit served as a platform for fostering collaboration and mutual learning between the two parties, as both institutions strive to provide holistic and future-focused education to students.
