2018年，我們為了證明自己，第一次參加了Odyssey of the Mind（OM）。 2019年，3個月的不懈努力，最終令我們踏上了舞台，拿起獎杯，獲得了代表香港出賽美國的資格。 這個獎杯，無疑給了我們一個面對世界賽的信心，但前往世界賽，出賽美國的龐大金額，無助感由心而生。所以我們希望向各方面尋求贊助，令我們能踏上地球的另一面，走出香港，參戰比賽。 我們亦希望著與世界各地的學生交流心得，觀摩世界不同隊伍的創意解難，擴闊視野，增廣見聞，增進我們的解難能力。 我們將會承載著您們的支持，帶出新的方向，向著美國，向世界賽的舞台進發。
As a startup social enterprise that focuses on sustainable development, Dreams Lab is curating and organizing an interactive experiential activity “Beyond Sight” with its aim at promoting the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDS 2030) set by the United Nations through creativities. In the face of climate change and man-made disasters, have you ever thought about the sights of the last days? "Beyond Sight: Before the Apocalypse", Dreams Lab’s brand new 4D interactive experiential event, sets in a pre-apocalyptic world. Participants will challenge the six experience zones in the impact of different sensory systems to complete the final mission! We hope that after the event, participants will be able to reflect on the messages behind the experience and take the first step in the world's dream action. In each zone, you need to complete the experience and a specific task before moving on to the next area.
《let us connect with life through art》 Are you happy? There is an invisible pressure everywhere in a city. Most of us are either overworked or forced to accept the mainstream values. Perhaps we have been brainwashed by fear and become a slave to money. Does this resonate with your heart? Do you long to live a different lifestyle outside of the current system of the society? If the answer is yes, then perhaps you are a starseed. We would like to invite you to join us in cultivating a nourishing phenomenon for all of us who have such feelings. Art and nature have the power to heal. We will together engage in a cycle of creative actions such as exhibitions, performances, art workshops, and healing sessions to nurture our heart and soul.
Spartan Race is the world's best obstacle course race, with over 240 races in 25 countries around the world this year. Spartan Race is not your everyday running race - expect to run, climb, push, pull, throw and crawl through walls, hills, trees, mud, barbed wire and other challenging but fun obstacles. All Spartan courses are designed to challenge you physically. We can’t spell out what exactly you will face, what fun would that be.
The Season Review is an annual, 32-page, full-colour magazine about the season in local football - covering the Hong Kong team, the local Premier League, local teams' runs in Asian competition, and more. It is published in English and Chinese, and 1,000 copies will be distributed for FREE at the FA Cup final in May. Now in its third year, it is produced by James Legge and Tobias Zuser of the Hong Kong Football Podcast. This magazine is entirely non-profit. It exists to support and chronicle football and football culture in a city where both are small and often neglected.
This year, we are calling upon your support again. MOS News and Yuen Long Residents have just made their debut, and we shall continue to give them the needed editorial and operational support, so that they could be better established. It is our hope that in one year's time, these two papers would be able to operate independently and sustainably. It is also our wish to support the publishing of two more district community papers, by providing training, reportage assistance and funds for publishing. We plan to organize a new series of training workshops for the aspiring community publishers.
On behalf of Lok Sin Tong Wong Chung Ming Secondary School, we participated in Odyssey of the Mind Hong Kong Regional Tournament 2019 organized by Chinese YMCA College. Three teams out of four of our school won the Champion, 1st Runner-Up and 2nd Runner-Up in long-term problem 5, 3 and 2 respectively. Both the Champion and 1st Runner-Up of our school would have the opportunity to represent Hong Kong to compete in the Odyssey of the Mind 2019 World Finals to be held at Michigan State University from 22-25 May 2019. However, here comes our biggest worry ─ without a penny, how can we achieve our goal across the ocean? You are very much appreciated, if you could spend a few minutes and know more about the stories of us 11 teenage girls. With your greatest support, it is hoped that we could take this journey to innovation and exploration and be a future maker.
DENTICE, being a portmanteau combining "Dental" and "Service", is established in 2014 by dental students in University of Hong Kong, who are dedicated to serving underprivileged communities by promoting oral health. In the past few years, our scope of service had extended to Hong Kong, mainland China, Cambodia and Sri Lanka communities. This year, collaborating with Cheerful Life Foundation, a Thai NGO providing supports to lower-profile individuals, DENTICE will organize an outreach service trip to Bangkok in the coming summer, providing necessary preventive dental treatments and oral health information to the lower-class children and villagers there through the efforts of dentists and dental students in our team. We hope this project will not only promote oral health awareness amongst our participants, but will also inspire fellow dental students to take the initiative to serve the underprivileged.
Hi I’m Michaela Mok, a fresh graduate from Good Hope School. I was first associated with SKSFF two years ago when I had to propose and carry out an internal activity at school to prove my worth in order to join my school’s student council. I ended up calling it “Pause for Paws” (great title I know), an awareness campaign for local stray dogs. Narelle was nice enough to arrange to bring pups and a few dogs to school and this made the event interactive and really got the message across students. After successfully earning my spot on the student council, I went back a couple times to see my furry friends. My mom, Linda Jackson, now an active volunteer at SKSFF got me involved in a few of their activities, including face-painting, fundraising, shaking buckets etc. Last year, the school suggested I enter a local competition called “Community Leaders of Tomorrow” where funds were given to me and my partner to carry out an activity for a charity of our choice. Without hestitation, we went straight back to Narelle and SKSFF to organise Pause for Paws version 2.0, where we went to shake buckets and raise awareness outside the Rugby Sevens. This event brought both students and teachers together as well as the community and even got the attention of the Education Bureau who later invited us to give a lecture about our experience to professors and students alike at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Though we did not win CLT, we were rewarded with the Most Popular Project Award. Upon finishing my public exams and graduating, I received a call about Pause for Paws creating buzz within the Education Bureau and that they would like my partner and I to appear on a television programme about student-led projects in collaboration with RTHK. Needless to say, SKSFF has opened a series of doors in my life, leading me to different opportunities and for that I am forever grateful. Among all the events, it puts a smile on my face to see our community willingly come together to pitch in to help our furry friends. Each dollar spent on the dogs is put to good use with medical care, food and maintenance, all ensuring a better life for the dogs, as said in SKSFF’s motto. During my few visits to the kennel, I have grown to love each of the 106 dogs there, understanding their back stories and personalities. I hope tonight’s event with help of the fringebacker can provide enough assistance to the shelter to keep making a difference, one canine at a time.
