Caring for the elderly
The Secret Angel Caring Program
Our students not only help build a caring and supportive school campus at Ho Yu, but also promote the caring culture for senior citizens in the community. They have joined the Secret Angel Caring Program which is launched by Senior Citizen Home Safety Association. This program aims to promote respect and care for the elderly and forge ties between the young and the elderly by creating opportunities for cross-generational engagement through a variety of program activities and volunteer service for students at all levels.
The participating students got involved in a ‘Care over the phone’ activity which enabled them to learn skills in communicating with the elderly and express their loving care and warm greetings to the elderly over the phone. They also understood care giving could help overcome the generation gap, thus building a caring and supportive society for all.
