IMC Sunday School’s Opening Ceremony

The opening ceremony of IMC Sunday School 2012-14 took place on 2nd September, 2012 at the headquarters of the Boys’ & Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong, Wan Chai. We were honored to invite Ms. Marion Weijman, Director of Operations, IMC Weekendschool from the Netherlands, Ms. Polly Chan, Head of Human Resources, IMC Asia Pacific Limited and Ms. Eva Ho, Assistant Director, The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong to attend and officiate the ceremony. 





  



Lesson One

The new students attended the opening ceremony and vowed to cherish every learning opportunity in IMC Sunday School. They were each given a student handbook, with which they used to record what they found out about their new classmates and volunteers in lesson 1. Class rules were explained to them and they were also encouraged to familiarize themselves with their group mates and volunteers. 





   



Lesson Two 

The students enjoyed a day full of exciting activities at HYFYG Jockey Club Sai Kung Outdoor Training Camp. After a series of warm-up games, they participated in abseiling and camp site orienteering. The activities were designed to help students improve communication skills, enhance their self-confidence and promote team spirit. They encouraged and helped each other overcome challenges during the activities. Both the students and volunteers had a wonderful experience! 





    



Lesson Three

The theme for this lesson is jewellery design. The students learned about sources of inspiration and different materials designers use to create their products. After an insightful session, the students turned their own inspirations into reality and showed their creativity through designing and decorating their group flags. They also came up with creative names for their groups and these are Amazing Action, Buddy, Crazy Buddy, Dream, Excellent, Fashion, Grateful, Happy Halloween, Intelligent and Jewellery! 





  



Lesson Four

The theme of design continued and the students learned about fashion design this week. They enjoyed the photos and videos shown by the guest speaker very much. With unlimited inspiration and energy, the students designed and decorated not only the group flags but also their unique and individual bags. They were very proud of their own creations. 





    



    



In the class, the students learn English vocabularies, oral and presentation skills through games, activities and group discussions.
