This upcoming event aims to bring music, sports and other outdoor recreational activities to the mentally challenged members residing at the St. James Settlement Rehabilitation Centre.

Report: Funny English Workshop 15 Oct 2005
Categories: 03 Event report
A charity event – “Funny English Workshop” was conducted on 15 Oct 2005, jointly organised by our alumni club (Ken, Nadine and Bianca) and St James Settlement. Many alumni participated and the event was enjoyed by many children. Please see Ken’s note below.
“We are happy to have arranged a voluntary activity with St James' Settlement. This voluntary project aims to provide an opportunity for the children to raise their understanding of English through some simple games and quiz. Also, through this kind of voluntary projects, we hope to raise the community's awareness of those children from the less privileged families and the new immigrants.”
