On 16 September 2023, the Honours Academy (HA) hosted a community-service event in collaboration with The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong’s Community Creativity Learning Centre (BGCA CCLC). The event, titled “Be Smart – Pre-teens Financial Literacy Workshop 2023”, aimed to empower approximately 20 school students, ranging from Primary 5 to Form 1, with essential financial literacy skills through a combination of interactive board games and engaging mini lectures.
A team of 20 HA students crafted a unique board game with props and visuals, revolving around various financial decisions one faces in their educational and early-career journeys. From colourful game pieces, to vibrant illustrations and informative cards, every aspect of the board game was thoughtfully designed to bring the game to life. From budgeting for school expenses, to making strategic choices about higher education and career empowerment options, the whole workshop provided students with an understanding of the financial responsibilities and opportunities that lie ahead in their futures.
The HA’s collaboration with the BGCA CCLC since 2022 has further strengthened relationships between the organisations, and the HA is looks forward to cooperating with different schools and units in our community to further support the development of impactful community initiatives aimed at promoting different topics that contribute to the well-being of Hong Kong’s youth.
