Renaissance College Fundraising 啟新書院籌款

Hong Kong Unison was honored to be selected by the Renaissance College Hong Kong to receive proceeds from the ethnic food sale at its 3rd RCHK International Evening on 23rd September. The annual event was organized to promote racial harmony by bringing different cultures together. Students believe that embracing diversity at RCHK is a way to combat racial discrimination and unite the local community. A variety of fun and talented performances was co-presented by students of different ethnicities. The donation will be used to promote equitable education opportunities for ethnic minority students in local mainstream schools.


Parents focus groups on curriculum review 

On 9 September, Unison held focus group discussion with ethnic minority parents regarding the public consultation on the review of primary and secondary school curriculum. We consulted parents on school-based homework policy, communication between ethnic minority parents and schools, and values education. Parents discussed about how identity of ethnic minority students can be explored when curriculum includes national identity. Unison compiled their views and suggestions. Similarly, a focus group discussion with a different group of ethnic minority parents was conducted on 27 September.

On 12 September, Unison held a school talk at Po On Wan Ho Kan Primary School on “Parents' role in helping children learn better Chinese”. More than 20 ethnic minority parents participated in the interactive talk. They shared their experiences and struggles to teach children Chinese at home. Parents expressed their eagerness to contribute in their children's studies at home and they were very willing to learn new skills.
