Read to Change Sharing Forum

Collaborated with Dr. Annis Fung, Associate Professor, Department of Applied Social Science of the City University of Hong Kong and her research team, HAC launched the "Read to Change” programme in 2015. 110 primary students joined the programme. It was found that the emotional control, personal conduct and social skills of the children were enhanced after joining storytelling related sessions.

From October 2016 to July 2017, we will continue the programme in Wong Tai Sin district for 200 children aged six to ten. Ten units of storytelling sessions are provided.

After two years research and observation, there were positive cognitive changes especially in hostile attribution and anger management among students. It was believed that storytelling had therapeutic effect on reducing students’ reactive aggression and enhancing student’s empathy.
