RI District 3450 is committed to promoting youth development. Through supporting teenagers to participate in various experiential activities, RI District 3450 facilitates students to communicate with others and develop leadership skills, as well as raising awareness of local and global issues, thereby promoting international goodwill and peace. It was of our utmost pleasure to pair up with “Rotary Club of New Territories’s Rotary Adopt a School Program” in 2019. With the tremendous support from RC New Territories, our school held numerous activities which broadened students’ horizons. On 20 May 2022, Mr Keith CHOW, the District Governor of RI District 3450, accompanied by Mr Peter LAU, President of RC New Territories, led district leaders of RI District 3450 to visit South Tuen Mun Government Secondary School and joined the Opening Ceremony of the Annual Open Days, in support of the school to promote positive values education. Honorable guests included Peter PANG, Past District Governor of RI District 3450 and Peace Committee Chair; Dr. Eric CHAK, Immediate Past District Governor; Dr. Norman LEE, District Governor-elect; Andy LI, District Governor-nominee; Nigel LO, District Governor-nominee Designate; Joseph YIM, Deputy District Secretary and Past President of RC New Territories; Francis CHAN, Deputy District Secretary and Immediate Past President of RC New Territories; Past President Derrick WONG, Chairman of Peace Camp Organizing Committee; Adrian KWONG, Youth Outreach Manager, Li Po Chun United World College of HK as well as other Rotary Friends.
The first and happiest moment was the unveiling of RC New Territories Mural led by honorable guests. The colorful mural painting marked the milestone of collaboration between RC New Territories and STMGSS, promoting love, peace, environmental protection and sustainable development. The district leaders from RI District 3450 and RC New Territories officiated the Opening Ceremony of Annual Open Days, witnessing the success of student participants of Peace Camp. District Governor Mr Keith CHOW addressed the school in the ceremony, sharing the achievements of RI District 3450 and how to serve to change lives, followed by the speech by President Mr Peter LAU, encouraging students to pursue excellence and serve the community. After that, there was the speech by Principal Arnett Edwards from Li Po Chun United World College of HK, sharing the takeaways of STMGSS students from the Peace Camp. We express our deep gratitude to RI District 3450 and RC New Territories for their unfailing support which enables our students to experience a fruitful and joyous school life.
