After completing nearly two years of sports training, students are wrapping up using a creative way – drawing.
One student illustrated her excited yet nervous feeling before competitions with hot air ballooning; Another drew heart and sweat being poured into a trophy, implying that much hard work and effort is needed for winning; A third one said that he enjoys playing soccer much more than tennis now yet he understands that both sports teach him discipline and teamwork and that sportsmanship is much more important than technical skills.
InspiringHK shall fully support these graduates no matter where they are going or what they are doing next – continue to learn tennis or develop in other areas. We really hope that students will never forget the attitude and exposure gained through learning tennis and apply them accordingly in the future.
The D. H. Chen Foundation visited our classes earlier, providing support and encouragement to our students!
Representatives from The D. H. Chen Foundation, partner of InspiringHK, visited RUN Inspires! Sham Shui Po class yesterday. Besides of talking to the students, they also distributed some gifts to praise the outstanding ones. Indeed, there are many passionate young teenagers in Hong Kong seeking to excel in sports and they are very much worth putting resources to cultivate and nourish. We would also like to thank those who have always been very supportive of InspiringHK.
A big thank you to Institute of Shopping Centre Management for selecting InspiringHK as one of their beneficiaries at the 13th Anniversary Gala Dinner and for raising $58,800 to support our operating expenses.
Docent asked: Do you want to become a member of the Legislative Council? Student replied: Yes! Docent asked again: Why do you want to become one? Student replied: I don’t know. There is no specific reason.
Politics, to primary school students, inevitably is a hard to understand topic. Yet, because politics is so closely related to our daily life, InspiringHK committee members decided to arrange a visit to the Legislative Council for students from WOMEN’s FOOTBALL Inspires! and HOCKEY Inspires! such that students can learn more about the operation and structure. Students attentively listened to the docent who explained the history of Legislative Council and the work of the Council Members while raising questions from time to time. Although we don’t really know what industry our students want to be in during the future, we hope that they can always bear in mind the importance of serving and contributing back to the society.
As the excitement of Rex Tso's victory on Saturday settles, everyone has started reflecting. What does Rex and our students think after leaving the roaring stadium?
Rex Tso, speaking to the media, thinks: "In the middle of the match I suffered a few serious blows. I lost strength and nearly collapsed. I told myself I needed to take my time to find the moment for a counter blow. For not the cheers from all of you I would have been knocked out.
Training this month was hard. I had injuries before entering the month, and had to train while I recovered. I gave in all I have into this match."
One of our student who watched the match thinks: "Rex has taught us that no matter how tough it is, we need to remain strong. I hope one day I can go onto a stage like Rex Tso and perform in my little world. I want to get the cheers from a roaring crowd.
Apart from Rex, the other boxers also fought admirably. All of them persevered to the end. I am very moved by their sportsmanship."
