Education University, Hong Kong: Leadership Development Camp

Education University, Hong Kong: Leadership Development Camp

This summer, 21 of us from the Education University of Hong Kong joined the Leadership Development camp organized by FSL-India, at Bangalore. It is an impressive camp with a great variety, which enabled us to explore India in depth, such as school teaching, home visit, sight-seeing, as well as interaction with the local residents. During the period, we gained chances to step out of our comfort zone, which is significant to our future life.

During the volunteering teaching, we tried to use limited resources and brought a variety of activities to the students. In the course, our problem solving skills and communication skills were enhanced. Our teaching experience was also enriched. We believe that it would help us a lot in our future. Apart from teaching, we had built a close relationship with the students and passed positive messages and behaviours to them.

Through the designing of activities for different age groups, we learnt how to interact with them smoothly by understanding their background, personality, needs and emotions. Besides, we got a chance to paint a large wall in the school, through which we learnt to cooperate among ourselves. The whole process left a remarkable memory for us all.

Home visit and community service were other important parts of the camp. We got a deeper understanding of cultural issues in India, such as marriage, food culture and living environment. The marriage culture has left a deep impression on us, which holds quite a conventional mode, in which the parents play the most important role. The difference between India and Hong Kong food culture is distinct and we were glad to get the chance to try different local food and in the meantime, share with them about our own food culture. Moreover, the living environment differs among villages and we also got a chance to explore the living condition of different social classes.
