Pui Ching Middle School held the opening ceremony for the Year of the Ox Lunar New Year Fair on February 4. To comply with social distancing regulations, this year’s New Year Fair was held online. It gave students an opportunity to experience traditional Chinese culture and put into practice the knowledge they learned in the classroom about entrepreneurship.
Principal Dr. Kou Kam Fai, Vice-Principal Mr. Kuok Keng Man, Vice-Principal Dr. Chan Keng Lim, and various school administrators attended the opening ceremony with General Manager Mr. Lo Seng Kong and Deputy General Manager Mr. Chan Sam I of the retail business department of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China. Dr. Kou mentioned that students benefited much from the Spring Festival Fair Marketing Curriculum jointly opened by Pui Ching and ICBC. This year presented a new challenge to students as the New Year Fair was moved online, but the challenge gave students a great learning opportunity and allowed them to assemble student-designed products into fortune bags to be sold online. The fortune bags were received well since their launch and were sold out quickly.
The Lunar New Year Fair gave students the opportunity to combine their knowledge in business, design and science, visual arts and STEAM and apply it to the planning and execution of business projects in real life.
As usual, proceeds from the Pui Ching Lunar New Year Fair go to charity purposes. It is hoped that the event can not only allow students to learn from practice, but also spread love and warmth to those in need.
