HK Methodist college team visits schools

Jun 2006    

THE Principal of Sha Tin Methodist College in Hongkong, Mr Lau Hor Keung, and six of his teachers came here recently on a goodwill and study tour of schools.

During their four-day stay here from April 11 to 14, they visited Anglo-Chinese School (Barker Road), Xinmin Secondary School and Victoria Junior College. They also visited the Ministry of Education where they were briefed by Mr Shaw Swee Tat, Assistant Director of International Relations.

They came to Methodist Centre on April 13 to pay a courtesy call on Bishop Dr Robert Solomon. As he was away, the Rev Khoo Cheng Hoot met the team. With him at a briefing was the Education Secretary, Mrs Tang Poh Kim, who told them that lives had been touched and changed in Methodist schools.

Mr Lau told Methodist Message that he was very keen to see an exchange programme of teachers between Hongkong and Singapore schools.

His visit here was “too short”, he said, but he found it “refreshing” to learn about the visions of the various schools they had visited.

“We would like to come back and visit more Methodist schools so that we can enlighten our teachers about the Methodist tradition of fostering quality education to the young generation,” he said.
