    YCCECE strives to promote Chinese culture.  Recently, Dr Ching Hui (second from right in the photo), director of the YCCECE Mengxue Institute took part in the final judging work for the "Student Cultural Ambassador" school member award scheme organized by the Hong Kong Chinese Culture Development Association (HKCCDA).


    The "Student Cultural Ambassador" scheme was launched by the HKCCDA last year, and this is the second cohort. The program invites primary, secondary, and kindergarten students across Hong Kong to become ambassadors and learn about and promote Chinese culture. To become a cultural ambassador, students must be active learners of Chinese culture/history within their schools and have outstanding academic achievements, have participated in or promoted meaningful Chinese cultural activities and performances, and have achieved accomplishments or honors in school-based or external Chinese cultural events, performances, or competitions.


    Beyond just deepening their cultural knowledge through designated cultural activities, training sessions, and study tours, even the youngest kindergarten student ambassadors can participate in specialized parent-child cultural activities to learn through play. Outstanding students can be elevated to "Distinguished Student Cultural Ambassador" status, receiving certificates and book vouchers. Previous student cultural ambassadors take great pride in contributing articles to the HKCCDA's magazine and sharing their experiences learning and promoting Chinese culture on radio programs. These activities have strengthened students' motivation to understand culture, and their sharing with peers has sparked greater interest in culture across their schools.


    Principal Mr Tak-kay Ng (fourth from left), the chairperson of the HKCCDA, stated that the "Student Cultural Ambassador" scheme has garnered support from various sectors, including radio stations and universities, and has broad coverage. They hope to gain even more support going forward. Last December, the student cultural ambassadors participated in a study tour to Zhongshan, Mainland China, where they deepened their understanding of Chinese culture, experienced historical architecture, learned about intangible cultural heritage, and gained insights into the current situation and development of the Greater Bay Area.


    The HKCCDA is actively promoting cultural inheritance. Dr Ching Hui said that the Mengxue Institute will fully support the program, and after the final judging meeting, the two parties will explore the possibilities of future collaborative research work and related activities.
