Po Leung Kuk One Belt One Road Series: Ningxia Educational Exchange Programme
In order to promote cultural and educational exchanges between Hong Kong and Ningxia, the Ministry of Education of the PRC has allocated a fund to sponsor the exchange program to a Belt and Road city Yinchuan in Ningxia Province. Given the coordination work of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the HKSAR, as well as assisted by the Education Department of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, a delegation of 27 principals, teachers and staff visited Ningxia from 6 to 11 June, 2018, to take part in a six-day educational exchange programme.
The delegation was invited to tour the Ningxia University, Yinchuan Tanglai Hui Middle School, Ningxia Changqing Junior High School, Ningxia Changqing Primary School and Yinchuan No.1 Kindergarten for lesson observation and exchange of professional ideas. In the meantime, two affiliated schools namely Women's Welfare Club Western District Fung Lee Pui Yiu Primary School and Lam Man Chan English Primary School have respectively formed links to become sister schools with Ningxia Changqing Primary School. Such collaboration marked a milestone as it is the first time that a primary school in Ningxia has formed links with any primary schools in Hong Kong.
Throughout the excursion, the delegation and the local officials shared their expertise on grounds of basic and tertiary education. Furthermore, The "Belt and Road initiative" has enabled the participant to experience the cultural diversity via its framework and hence, promoted the knowledge exchange of the social integration and diversity education between Hong Kong and the Ningxia Province.
