Life planning and career guidance have been major focuses in the field of education over the past few years. Capitalising on the long-standing tradition of the Mentorship Programme at HKU and the wide scope of the Halls’ alumni network, Ricci Hall and Lady Ho Tung Hall have taking the lead in arranging diversified career-related activities as a way to foster current residents’ understanding of different professions. The initiative, conducted in co-operation with secondary schools, also allows alumni and current students to share their experiences and unique hall cultures with potential university entrants.

 

The introductory meeting of the pilot scheme of Ricci Hall Mentorship Programme was successfully kicked off on June 15, 2017 at Ricci Hall. A total of ten Riccian alumni (‘Daisins’) from various fields, such as medicine, healthcare, education and finance, were involved. They offered professional advice to current residents regarding job applications and internships. The entire programme will be formally launched in September, providing ample opportunities for alumni and current residents to interact with one another.

 

Representatives of Ricci Hall and Lady Ho Tung Hall also volunteered as group leaders and docents for the ‘Variety Show for Hong Kong NCS Secondary Students 2017’* on June 27, 2017. They enjoyed a halal meal together with the ethnic minority performers, and offered an intercultural campus tour for secondary school principals, teachers, and students. It was followed by a visit to Tuen Mun Government Secondary School on July 7, 2017 with further support from students and alumni of both halls. They shared essential JUPAS information, their university life experiences, and career planning advice with around 200 teachers and students.  The guest speakers were professionals from different sectors, including medicine, healthcare, dentistry, law, finance, engineering, information technology, architecture, surveying, education, social work and creative media. They engaged in in-depth discussions with students about the characteristics and challenges of different jobs. Demonstrations of ‘new ball games’; namely, hockey, lacrosse, and softball, marked the end of the visit. TMGSS students were given rare opportunities to try out these sports during the session.

生涯規劃教育及升學就業輔導為近年學界關注所在。憑藉行之有效、行之有年的師友計劃傳統,以及周延綿密的舊生網絡,香港大學利瑪竇宿舍與何東夫人紀念堂積極安排多元活動,促進大學宿生對不同專業的認知和了解,更與中學學界合作,安排各行各業的菁英與大學同儕,分享專業心得及港大特色文化。

 

利瑪竇宿舍師友計劃先導會議率先於2017年6月15日在宿舍舉行。十位分別來自醫療護理、教育及金融行業的「大仙」(「Senior」的諧音,對資深舍友的稱呼)與宿生暢談行業前景與甘苦,並就面試及見習工作給予寶貴意見。計劃將於九月開學後,包羅更多「大仙」與宿生參與。

 

利瑪竇宿舍同學更和何東夫人紀念堂宿生合作,於6月27日參與「2017香港非華語學生才藝匯演」*,與中學校長、老師及少數族裔同學一齊品嚐清真美食,作跨文化校園導賞,介紹港大傳統文化與特色。兩堂畢業校友及宿生其後在7月7日探訪屯門官立中學,與逾二百名師生分享大學聯招資訊、升學就業的不同面向,以及大學生活點滴。兩所舍堂宿生與富有職涯經驗的校友,均來自不同專業,如醫療護理、牙醫、法律、商業、工程及資訊科技、建築及測量、教育及社會工作、創意與藝術等,與屯官同學深入探討各行各業的特色和挑戰。兩堂宿生更帶同裝備,邀請與會者嘗試棍網球、曲棍球與壘球等港大特色新球類,讓他們渡過難忘的早上,增進對大學與不同專業的認知之餘,更能感受港大傳承多年、文武兼備的「搏盡」情懷。
