"C-for- Chinese@JC" Project

"C-for- Chinese@JC" Project

Background and Objectives

“C-for-Chinese@JC” is created and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, co-created by three local universities and two non-governmental organisations. Through pioneering a home-school-community evidence-based model, this five-year Project aims to foster a culturally responsive and pleasurable learning environment and to facilitate effective teaching, with a view to enhancing the Chinese proficiency of culturally diverse kindergarten children for their better transition to primary education and early integration.

This five-year project was launched in July 2016. With the collaboration among "Home, Community and School", we hope to achieve the following objectives:

  • Expand Chinese learning opportunities for Non-Chinese kindergarten students.
  • Explore internal resource in the NCS families to support their children in learning Chinese and enhance children's proficiency.
  • Promote cross-cultural sharing among different ethnic groups, enhance mutual understanding and achieve social integration ultimately.
