Secondary School Principals’ Day explores importance of first-year university experience

中學校長日探討首年大學生活的體驗與啟思

About 200 principals and teachers from over 100 secondary schools took part in the 12th HKBU Secondary School Principals’ Day on 8 January 2014. The event, with the theme of “Life Brilliant Quote: Inspiring First-Year University Experience”, was organised by the Academic Registry and sought to enhance exchange of views between the secondary school sector and the University on the importance of the first-year experience at university to the post-90s generation in relation to their personal development as well as their aspiration to achieve their life goals.  

The theme was discussed at a plenary session presided over by Dr. So Kwok-sang, Academic Registrar, with speakers Dr. Moses Cheng, Chairman of the Education Commission, Professor Albert Lee, Director of Student Affairs, and Mr. Jeff Ho, Student Representative of HKBU. They shared their views from the perspective of a social leader, university professor and student.  

After the plenary session, participants joined parallel seminars offered by Faculties/ Schools/Academy. They also took the opportunity to tour HKBU’s campuses, with stops at the University Library, the Communication and Visual Arts Building, the School of Chinese Medicine, the Academy of Visual Arts and the College of International Education.

來自一百多所中學約二百位校長和老師在昨日(一月八日)出席第十二屆香港浸會大學中學校長日。活動由教務處舉辦,今年以「人生亮點:首年大學生活的體驗與啟思」為主題。大學首年的學習經驗不單是中學教育到大學教育的一個延續,也是同學發掘自我潛能的一個機會,能擴闊視野,啟迪發展潛能。

專題講座由教務長蘇國生博士主持,三位講者──教育統籌委員會主席鄭慕智博士、浸大輔導長李慧明教授和學生代表何卓軒同學──分別從社會領袖、大學教授以及學生的角度,分享首年大學生活的體驗對學生的個人發展及未來路向的啟思。

此外,中學校長和老師亦參加各學院分別舉行的座談會,並參觀大學校園設施,包括大學圖書館、傳理視藝大樓、中醫藥學院、視覺藝術院和國際學院等。
