Project Introduction

The "C-for- Chinese@JC" Project is created and funded by Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, and co-created by the University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong University of Education, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Lady MacLehose Center and Hong Kong Christian Service. It aims at nurturing a better Chinese learning environment for non-Chinese speaking kindergarten students (NCS) with a cultural responsive element for better and early integration into the community. This five-year project was launched in July 2016. With the collaboration among "Home, Community and School", we hope to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Expand learning opportunities for non-Chinese speaking kindergarten students to learn Chinese.
  2. Explore the internal resources in the NCS families to support their children in learning Chinese.
  3. Promote cross-cultural sharing among different ethnic groups, enhance mutual understanding and achieve social cohesion ultimately.
