International Day 2016

Over 120 non-local and local students gathered together to celebrate the first-ever International Day 2016 on 5 October 2016.  Presented by Student Affairs Office, the event aims at promoting internationalisation on campus to embrace cultural diversity at HSMC.
The campus was filled with festive atmosphere during the Day, with game booths hosted by exchange students and their buddies to showcase their traditions and cultures. In addition, returning students and exchange students were invited to share their exchange experience abroad and in the College. Dr. Tom Fong, Acting Vice-President (Organisational Development) cum Chairperson of the Academic Exchange Committee who delivered the opening remarks enjoyed the Day with students and staff, including Ms Rebecca Chan, Director of Student Affairs and Residential Colleges Masters. To conclude the Day, laughter and excitement were found among the participants at the Jump Rope Competition and Stolen Dans, a traditional game from the Netherlands, led by two exchange students.  

The International Day provided a great opportunity for all students to learn about different cultures, our partner universities and to build friendship among each other.

All students and staff spending a happy afternoon together on the International Day.
