TrustTomorrow on Education: LEAP into Life

Meaningful life education can plant the seeds of positivity in students’ minds. Joyce Chow, Education Manager of the Life Education Activity Programme (LEAP), has spent many years bringing interesting and interactive educational materials to primary schools across Hong Kong through LEAP mobile classrooms, in hopes of promoting healthy living and preventing drug abuse. To Joyce’s delight, even though each session only lasts for an hour or two, the students would be actively engaged throughout – eventually sharing the health tips at home and reminding their family members to stay away from cigarettes, alcohol and drugs. With SwireTrust’s funding support, programmes like LEAP––which are few and far between––can get the resources needed to help more students establish a positive attitude in life.
