China News Service, Hong Kong, January 10 (Reporter Dai Xiaolu) The Hong Kong CPPCC Youth Federation and the Hong Kong Palace Museum jointly launched a half-year “Youth Journey Through the Forbidden City” event and held the fourth closed special session on the 10th. During the event, Hong Kong Legislative Council member Lin Lin visited the pavilion with more than 100 ethnic minority students to learn about Chinese history and culture.
It is understood that about 3,100 primary and secondary school students in Hong Kong participated in the event, including students from ethnic minorities and students with special educational needs. Lin Lin and 120 ethnic minority students from the Yau Ma Tei Kai Fong Association School visited the Hong Kong Palace Museum and had in-depth exchanges. The students were very interested in the exhibits, and they asked the museum guides questions from time to time. They also experienced the calligraphy copying device on the spot and copied the “Orchid Pavilion Preface” with a brush.
Lin Lin expressed that she believes that this visit can deepen students’ understanding of Chinese culture. She believes that cultivating students’ understanding of Chinese history and culture from an early age will help cultivate their sense of belonging to Hong Kong and the country. Schools can promote calligraphy learning so that students can learn more about the traditional Chinese culture. (Finish)
