Introduction

This learning and teaching package mainly focuses on the promotion of values and morality education in a more pragmatic and practical manner by using the real-life experiences of closely-connected community leaders to Tung Wah and our school as stimulation to motivate students to understand how the underlying values system is driving each of them to contribute to the betterment of our community, our nation and the world. As well, this package is aimed at promoting Tung Wah values to be embedded into the innermost feelings of each of the students so that the students will possess the right values and attitudes to encounter challenges in the future. The sharing of each of the leaders concerning values, morality and attitudes will be used mainly in Homeroom Periods and Morning Assembly.

In addition to values education, it is our obligation to design a set of school-based teaching package for Business Education, Integrated Humanities and Liberal Studies. The business and finance experiences of each of the eminent leaders are so valuable that this knowledge is conducive to the understanding of some complicated theories and the business trends of Hong Kong, China, Asia and the world. It is sure that the students taking BAFS will get benefits. The elements related to China will be widely used in Integrated Humanities and Liberal Studies so that our students will have a more exposure towards the latest developments in China.

At last, S. C. Gaw has a close connection to the compatriots (Overseas Chinese) who have continuously offered blessings and support to the development of the school and it is a great opportunity to let our students understand more about the history of the Overseas Chinese, the reasons for their ancestors or family deciding to do business overseas, and their values system and rationale behind patriotism and education. It is our ultimate aim to let the students understand more about the hardships facing different people and hard work is the key to success.

In order to actualize and realize our hope to design and devise the school-based curriculum to infuse values education in our curriculum, and to let our students learn from the contributions of Gaw’s family towards education, the business world, TWGHs and our school, three of our Form 5 students, Lee Cheong Wai, Brian, Law Pui Kwan and Tse Chak Lam had a glorious and delightful opportunity to visit and interview the whole Gaw’s family for information to design the school-based learning and teaching materials for the benefits of the students in the academic year 2014-2015 onwards.

Before the interview, the students endeavored to design different types of interviewing questions to elicit responses from the renowned, reputed and respectful Gaw’s family members in the following aspects:
- Opportunities and threats facing hotel and catering industry in the world;
- Development of Hospitality Industry in Hong Kong and China;
- Influence of globalization on the development of hotel industry;
- Importance of education to the next generation;
- Influence of globalization on the growth of teenagers;
- Reasons for Gaw family’s interest in sponsoring education;
- Perceptions of Gaw’s family towards TWGHs values.

The students were all impressed with the interview because they have learnt how to be more confident in front of VIPs and to present their questions in a clear, articulate and eloquent way. Also, they said that they enjoyed the interviewing time with the Gaw’s family in a friendly manner.

On 28th August, 2014, a group of our students, teaching staff and technicians accompanied by our Principal spent the whole morning interviewing our Chairman, Mr Sze Wing Hang, Ivan at the Headquarter of Tung Wah Group of Hospitals in Po Yan Street. Our students have worked very hard and prepared a number of questions related to the opportunities and threats facing real estates in China, the influence of globalization on the development of real estates in China, the differences between Shanghai and Hong Kong, the importance of education to the next generation, and his expectations on the growth of teenagers. The students were touched by Mr. Sze’s enthusiasm in responding to the questions related to the recent development of China and he tried to provide ample examples to widen the horizons of the students. His knowledge about the construction industry in China has helped our students understand more about China in another perspective. It is known that ignorance is the main obstacle leading to misunderstanding. By listening to the explanations provided by Mr. Sze, our students have had deeper understanding of China, which is also a place caring about the living standard of her citizens.

As well, our students have been showing their interests in finding out the reasons why Mr. Sze is so dedicated to TWGHs and he has shown his blueprint planning in the development of TWGHs in terms of medical and welfare aspects. In the interview, the students have had a great time to learn from a prominent public figure and philanthropist who is highly involved in contributing to the development of China on the one hand, and spends his time on leading a famous charitable organization to encounter different kinds of challenges in Hong Kong on the other hand.
