LAC Learning Activities – Visit to Man Mo Temple & Inter-class Public Speaking Competition on the Redevelopment of Choi Hung Estate
LAC Committee, English Department and History Department of Sing Yin
Man Mo Temple and Sing Yin
With the joint efforts of the LAC Committee, English Department and History Department, our Form 1 students have learnt more about the importance of cultural heritage in tourism in Hong Kong through a series of learning activities since last November.
A highlight among these activities was the visit to the Man Mo Temple at Sheung Wan. During the visit, not only did students have to observe how the traditional Chinese beliefs attract tourists from all around the world, they also interviewed tourists for their views on the temple and Hong Kong as a tourist destination. With the feedback from the tourists, students could gain more insights into cultural preservation and tourism. This authentic experience enabled students to communicate in English and consolidate what they have learnt in the English and History classes.
Another highlight was the Form 1 Inter-class Public Speaking Competition. Through debating on whether the Choi Hung Estate should be redeveloped, students could demonstrate their advocacy skills and abilities to think from multiple perspectives. Apart from explaining why this old estate in our neighbourhood is worth preserving despite its relatively short history, they had to explore the impact on the welfare of the residents when considering the redevelopment project. This activity provided students with a great opportunity to reflect on some of the pressing issues in Hong Kong - heritage preservation, tourism and housing development.
