Secondary school students begin to plan for further studies and/or career path which are indeed an important stage of their growth. Meanwhile, schools would provide various programs to help students develop positive values. The experience at Life Journey Centre is in line with secondary schools’ program such as Liberal Studies, Ethics & Religious Studies, Life Education, Life-wide Learning and Life Planning. It can cultivate students a positive concept in treasuring time and care for family and the elderly.
All secondary schools, tertiary institutes, NGOs, youth organizations, or religious groups are welcome to join the life experience journey.
*Tailored experience tours are available for primary school and special schools, please contact us for details.
Apart from the experience in the Life Journey Centre, workshops are also offered to the student tours. The workshop provides an opportunity to students:
- To rethink the importance of effective communication with family
- To have a better understanding of the elderly and a new perspective on ageing
By a telephone game and face to face dialogue with an elderly person, the students will be able to have a better understanding of the life style of a retiree and can show their care for the elderly by just a phone call.
Through watching the micro film produced by the “Silver age Studio”, students can redefine the meaning of “ageing” through different perspectives, feel the immortal spirit of the “silver age”. This will cultivate a new impression of elderly.
The workshop is designed for students to draw what they want to look like when they are 60 years old. They will realize “Old Age” is not necessarily weak, dependent or useless. This self-reflection exercise cultivates a positive perspective on ageing.
What games did seniors play? In “Finding the New in the Old” workshop, an elderly will lead students to play an old-time game in a new way. The goal of this workshop is to allow students to see that ‘old’ people and things may not be old-fashioned or forgotten. Students will learn to appreciate and discover the beauty of the ‘old’, thus stimulating and encouraging them to care and understand more the elderly around them.
