    Nursing students reach out to the community

    On 16 November 2013, five Year 2 Nursing students participated in a carnival promoting safety and health, organized by the Wong Tai Sin District Healthy and Safe City and District Fire Safety Committee (Wong Tai Sin District). By manning a game booth, they helped to raise public awareness of cardiovascular disease. On 14 December, eight Year 2 Nursing students went to Caritas Elderly Centre – Sai Kung in order to conduct health examinations for the elderly.

    Raising funds for cataract patients in the mainland

    On 3 November last year, a team of 30 OUHK students and staff joined the ‘Lifeline Express Charity Run/Walk 2013’ at Pak Tam Chung Po Leung Kuk Holiday Camp, which aimed to raise funds for Lifeline Express Eye Hospital Train and support underprivileged people suffering from cataracts in mainland China. Council Chairman Dr Eddy C Fong as the Vice Chairman of the Lifeline Express Hong Kong Foundation Council participated in the event as well.

    Students meet the People's Liberation Army in Hong Kong

    Following an invitaton by the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in Hong Kong, a group of 32 students had the opportunity to visit the People’s Liberation Army Hong Kong Garrison on 16 November 2013, with programmes including a demonstration of military equipment, cultural performance, a soccer match and a visit to the army accommodations.

    Learning outside engineering classroom

    On 8 February, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers OUHK Student Branch visited the computer equipment designed for the visually impaired at the Hong Kong Blind Union, and gained an understanding of how technology could support people in need. During their visit, they also attended a briefing session on voluntary services, including a discussion of a smartphone application that supports the visually impaired in familiarizing themselves with their environment and in planning their daily activities.

    In addition, a group of 30 engineering students went to the Ocean Park on 22 February. In a guided tour, the Engineering staff of the Park introduced the students to Grand Aquarium’s life support system and the facilities at Ocean Express, like its control room and machine room. At the latter attraction, they also attended a maintenance workshop and learned how engineering could widely apply to the infrastructure of an amusement park.

    Students learn what it takes to be a future leader

    A series of Leadership Training Programmes organized by the OUHK’s Student Counselling Service was held in October 2013, with the aim of enhancing students’ problem-solving skills and their knowledge of leadership. During the programmes, 40 students were able to explore the qualities of what makes a leader via a camp and training workshops, and participated in voluntary services for the elderly and the hearing-impaired.

    OUHK's participation in Wu Zhi Xing for the third year

    On 17 November 2013, 26 students and staff members of the OUHK participated in ‘Wu Zhi Xing,’ an intervarsity charity walk organized by Wu Zhi Qiao (Bridge to China) Charitable Foundation in support of the bridge-building projects in the remote areas of mainland China. This was the third year that the OUHK engaged in this activity. Together with local citizens and representatives from other tertiary institutions, they started walking from Tsuen Wan Park Plaza and ended the walkathon in Sham Tseng, raising HK$7,900 in total for the Foundation.
