Mr. Lam Ka Tung, A Famous Hong Kong Movie Star, Was Giving A Speech
Principal Chan Hong is passionate about education and believes in the concept of “education without distinction”; in 2009, he quitted his job as Principal of a middle school; in April, 2011, he founded “Principal Chan Free Tutorial World”, which is a non-profit charity recognized by Hong Kong Government and provides free one-to-one tutorial services to poor students with not so good learning performances. According to Principal Chan, until now, there are more than 12,000 students and over 9,000 volunteer teachers in the “Tutorial World”. Operation funds of the “Tutorial World” are from two sources: Firstly, donations made by citizens; secondly, donations from funding plans of civil foundations. With continuous donations from different social fields, the “Tutorial World” had arranged pre-school classes, group academic classes, talent courses (musical instrument classes, photography classes, fine art classes and etc.), extracurricular activities (outdoor visits, parent-child workshops, English summer camps) and etc.
Mr. Chan Hong, Founder of “Principal Chan Free Tutorial World”, Was Expressing His Gratitude to Enterprises, Groups and Individuals for Their Good Deeds
At the Party, Principal Chan Hong expressed his sincere appreciation to sponsors and donors; he mentioned in his speech that all students can develop through education, regardless of their intelligence, capacity or wealth, the key is “to teach students according to their aptitudes”; the concept of education shall be eliminating inequality; diversified talents shall be trained through basic education so that people with different abilities and characteristics may all have careers; both mortality and skills are important, but skills shall be different futures instead of unified methods and destinations offered in current education; rich students can receive paid tutorial services or even go abroad for higher education, unluckily, poor students do not have such options; it is wrong that countless poor students feel helpless under today’s education system, like poor patients died because hospitals do not rescue them, it is painful and indignant. Principal Chan turned his anger into actions, took the great challenge and worked little by little for ten years. His benevolence and righteousness are touching. Wang Weiyi, President of Organization Committee of the Party, stated that some people think voluntary works are “subtractions” – sacrificing time and energy, in fact, they are “additions” and even “multiplications”.
