Victoria Educational Organisation held the opening ceremony of the “We Think, We Feel, We Care” Little Makers STEAM Education Festival - a STEAM-focused education event held in support of UNICEF HK’s “Cherish Water” Charity Campaign to raise students’ awareness of the global water crisis.

The event was attended by Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung Yun-hung, Chairman of Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF Judy Chen, and Guo Jing-jing, Ambassador of Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF, all three attended a student-guided tour of the Festival exhibits.

The Festival served as a valuable experiential learning journey for students during an extended period of remote learning.

Embarking on a voyage of their own making, VEO students used their imagination to create unique, colorful and trilingual expressions of themselves and their hopes for a future world.

Together with donations from the VEO community, VEO will join forces with CTF Education Group and Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group, aiming to raise HK$1 million for UNICEF HK’s campaign to support UNICEF’s various water-related measures, including the procurement of water purification tablets that can transform 4-5 litres of dirty water, for every single tablet, into safe drinking water for vulnerable communities.

Jennifer Yu Cheng, Deputy Vice Chairwoman and Group President of CTF Education Group and Supervisor of Victoria Educational Organisation, said the STEAM Education Festival demonstrates the organization’s continued excellence in early childhood education despite the challenges presented by the pandemic.

“We enhanced our online interactive lessons and designed engaging educational home kits and materials throughout this academic year, so students could continue to learn, explore, and give back to the community,” said Yu.

Meanwhile, Hong Kong education chief said the festival not only provides opportunities for children’s fun and creative learning, but also encourages children to explore and discover for themselves the knowledge of our world.

“I hope this Festival will inspire our beloved young generation to keep your curiosity burning, to let your imagination run free, and to dream big,” Yeung added.
