The Reading Sowers in Community Project (Phase 2)

This project aims at promoting reading to parents and children in kindergartens and primary schools.  Training workshops, distinguished by their fun and interactivity, will be provided to equip parents to be Storytelling Mums and Dads in schools.  We will also offer in-depth training to selected schools in Kwai Chung, Wong Tai Sin and Kwun Tong, encouraging parents to use storytelling as a means of communication with children.  Apart from school-based programmes, the Storyland will also hold regular paired reading sessions for children at our centre, hoping to cultivate their interest in reading and to care for their developmental needs.

Little Links, Unlimited Dreams Project (Phrase 2)

HAC was glad to receive the match donation granted by The Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged to launch Phrase 2 of the “Little Links, Unlimited Dreams” Project. Three secondary schools and three schools with special needs students will be matched up as reading buddies. Workshops like story writing, communications skill will be provided. It is hoped that through this connection, social inclusion and networking can be achieved.  Phrase 2 is launched by mid 2011. HAC will partner with schools like SAHK Jockey Club Elaine Field School to spread the reading culture among the community.
