FOREWORD Learning has no boundaries and is always full of fun.

Ms. Mimi Tang Founder & CEO Wing’s Share Company Limited Ms. Tang has been a great supporter of Kids4Kids since 2015. The cover artwork was created by Ms. Tang specially for this booklet.

Three years ago, Ms. Mimi Tang had just celebrated her birthday and asked friends to donate money for charity in lieu of gifts. Mimi knew that she wanted to support a local charity who worked to develop kids’ creativity and imagination. Ms. Tang found Kids4Kids during her web search and decided to support by using her donation to gift Kids4Kids Books, which are stories created by kids that go on to help inspire other kids to tell their own story through colourful pictures and words. Ms. Tang continues to support Kids4Kids in many ways, and created the cover artwork for this Literacy in Review publication specially for Kids4Kids. Look at it closely, and what do you see? Can you start a story? Ms. Mimi Tang, is the Former President of Kering Asia-Pacific with a few decades of experience in the luxury retail business. She is recognised by several publications as a leading philanthropist, outstanding entrepreneur and one of the most successful women in business in China. However, her successful career was not because of Mimi’s education, having only completed secondary school, but rather, it was always her determination and positive mindset to always be pushing herself to learn new things that helped her become the accomplished person she is today. But that doesn’t stop here. Mimi continues to try new things, and about a year ago. Mimi said, “I thought I could not draw and did not know how to draw at all, but now I could finish one piece of my mandala style artwork in just 8-10 hours! This is a miracle, isn't it?” The transformation happened just within a year but my passion for drawing will now last forever. Though I am not an art person, I have developed my talents through creativity, imagination, thinking out of the box and most importantly, more practice. Learning has no boundaries and is always full of fun. Don’t be afraid to explore and try, don’t give up even the process is not easy, and till the end you will find the experiences are so magical and simply awesome!

KIDS4KIDS PROGRAMS Kids4Kids Literacy Development programs target primary age students and foster creative learning skills from a young age.

Literacy Development

Jockey Club Kids4Kids Buddy Reading Program Buddy Reading Program was launched in 2010 to bring the enjoyment and benefits of storytelling to underserved children in the community who usually do not have this reading opportunity experience at home or at school. Kids4Kids recognizes that the development of a good reading habit in the early years enhances language learning and knowledge acquisition to prepare for a life of learning.

My Story Creation Primary students from all across Hong Kong are encouraged to join the annual My Story Creation Competition to showcase their storytelling talents. The goal is for kids to use their creativity and imagination to tell their stories, share them and help inspire others to create their own story. To support schools with limited resources and organizations supporting low income families, Kids4Kids provides My Story Creation Workshops to develop students’ skills to write and illustrate stories.

Code + Create Kids4Kids believes that helping underprivileged kids from primary age get access to Computer Science (CS) is a vital part of our literacy development work to level the education inequalities. Learning coding language benefits children in many ways. It nurtures creative and innovative thinking, improves problem solving skills and at the same time, helps them gain the CS language skills needed for today and tomorrow’s workforce.

SPOTLIGHT ON …

Why did you join My Story Creation Competition?

I joined because I thought I could learn a lot from it, such as sharing our story “The Wolf and The Sheep” with other children, and where I hope it would inspire people to be kind to each other. Through the process of writing the story, I also learnt more vocabularies that is not taught in the classroom.

Your story was one of the winners for My Story Creation Competition 2016. How did that make you feel? I was very surprised to hear that we won the Overall Winner Award in our school. It was the first time we joined this competition. I will definitely recommend My Story Creation Competition to others as it is both fun and educational for primary age students.

Why did you join the My Story Creation Competition? I joined My Story Creation Competition due to the recommendation of our teacherlibrarian, Ms Helen Chan. Through cooperation with students from other classes, I knew more friends in the program. Moreover, I find inspiration from other stories’ illustrations.


SPOTLIGHT ON …

Why did your school join My Story Creation Competition this year?

My Story Creation Competition is not merely a writing competition; it provides the valuable learning opportunities such as My Story Creation Workshops on story writing and illustrations for nurturing students’ literacy in the process.

How did your students benefit from being involved in a creative writing competition?

Helen Man-yi Chan

Senior Teacher (Teacher Librarian) Lam Tin Methodist Primary School Participant of My Story Creation Competition 2016 & 2017

Students need a repertoire of learning platforms as well as dynamic channels to develop their communication, imagination, creativity, collaboration, and leadership.

Would you recommend My Story Creation Competition to other schools and why? I would highly recommend My Story Creation Competition to other schools as it is a springboard for students’ success in achieving those critical 21st Century skills.

Why is creative writing important for student development? Creative writing is valued in different fields, including education, business, science, and technology. People who know how to write well are treasured in many industries. My Story Creation, which enhances students’ literacy through creative writing, can undoubtedly meet the needs of today’s students.

SPOTLIGHT ON ‌

Can you share a memorable experience when you are volunteering at Kids4Kids? I have been a writing and illustration instructor for My Story Creation Workshops for two years. The workshops give opportunities for students to share their ideas and develop skills to create their own creative stories. After finishing the two 2-hour workshops, even students who had perceived themselves to have limited ability can finish their own creative stories and share with us with confidence.

From your experience, what are the major difficulties students encounter when creating a story?

Faustina Chung

My Story Creation Workshop Instructor

Most students struggle with getting started on what they can write about being the main story idea, and usually lack of vocabularies and spelling hinders them. I found that students with a habit of reading for enjoyment usually did not encounter these difficulties.

How do My Story Creation Workshops help students create story? The workshops are student-centred and engaging. The students have many opportunities to share their thoughts. As teachers, we will ask the right questions to guide them to think creatively. We also make use of the storyboard to help them to plan and create their stories with illustrations. In the tailor-made writing guide booklet, students will be guided to think and write whatever they wish to, no limitation to their imagination and creativity.

What would you advise students who are interested in creating story? Glean ideas from your daily life and the world around you. Write about what you know and love. Make use of your curiosity to imagine and write with no boundaries. No need to worry about the spelling and vocabularies. Your teachers, parents and friends can give you a guiding hand.

PERSPECTIVE

“

As a child, I was blessed with a lot of time to let my imagination run wild. Many of the games my siblings and I played didn't come in a box. We created many living adventure stories without a script. There were places to go, picnic tables, bunk beds and refrigerator boxes became forts, buses and time machines. Truly priceless memories of my childhood.

Betty Cheung

Creator at artjamming by Meli-Melo Limited My Story Creation Competition Judge since 2012

Upon becoming a Kids4Kids My Story Creation Competition core judge several years ago, I was now blessed with an opportunity to read hundreds of stories imagined by kids. And although this is a challenge, there are some big rewards when judges discover honest, genuine imagination and sentiments of a child writer/illustrator. (Sorry to say, despite valiant attempts, adults are sorely mistaken when they think they can replicate this. Don't even try).

Two years after first volunteering as a judge, I designed an illustration workshop which was conducted as part of the Kids4Kids My Story Creation Workshops (sponsored by SCOLAR, an Education Department Bureau funded project targeted to give language access opportunities to lower resourced schools around Hong Kong). My motivation was born from the sometimes disappointing inconsistencies in competition entries. The workshop was designed to help kids imagine their stories through pictures and it gave them valuable skills to better plan and effectively complete their full set of drawings. Although the sponsored My Story Creation Workshop is a mere two hours long, it inspired many of these schools to now participate in the annual Kid4Kids’ competition. 9


PERSPECTIVE Over this summer “The Story Spinners” illustration workshops will continue to be held at the artjamming studio in Wong Chuk Hang. For more information, visit artjamming.com.

10

Since the success of My Story Creation Workshops which is offered free to schools with limited resources, we have further expanded this illustration workshop format and created “The Story Spinners” workshops which is now available for all to join as a paid workshop, a collaboration project between artjamming and Kids4Kids. “The Story Spinners” workshops show future story writers and illustrators how to envision their whole story, make valuable changes, strive for consistency and more importantly to keep them focused on the fun of storytelling.

JOCKEY CLUB KIDS4KIDS BUDDY READING PROGRAM VOLUNTEERS 「賽馬會 童協伴讀樂」 義工的分享

I am currently pursuing a Master of Public Health from the University of Hong Kong. I came to know about Jockey Club Kids4Kids Buddy Reading Program through my school. My duties mainly consist of forming and redesigning the session plans, which are an essential part of the program. Furthermore, I am also engaged in site monitoring to ensure that the sessions are run smoothly.

Why did you decide to become a Kids4Kids intern? I believe that working with kids, especially those coming from humble background, is the best way of giving back to society and Kids4Kids is the best platform in Hong Kong through which I can attain this. Moreover, working with kids also acts as a stress buster for me and it gives me a break from my tight schedule.

What have you enjoyed most about participating in the Buddy Reading Program? Working on session plans and then later having them executed have been very special for me. I cherish seeing kids enjoy the stories and story extension activities and it motivates me to improve.

What have you learnt since joining the Buddy Reading Program? The Buddy Reading Program has brushed up my leadership skills. I am now capable of taking a lead and working in a group. It has also enhanced my communication skills as I can present my thoughts and ideas in a better way.

Do you have any advice for somebody planning on joining the Buddy Reading Program?

Arzoo Sahni

香港大學學生 童協基金會 「賽馬會童協伴讀樂」 2018 年度實習生 20

I believe to fully enjoy this experience, it is very important to connect with the children and have an understanding of how they feel. This will not only make it easy for you to communicate with them but will also help in session planning. 我現正在香港大學進修公共衛生碩士學位課程。童協基金會的「賽馬會童協伴 讀樂」是我從學校中認識。我的主要工作是籌劃有關伴讀環節,同時亦須監察流 程以確保項目順暢。

你為什麼當初決定成為童協基金會的實習生呢? 我認為可以幫到有需要的小朋友是我回饋社會的其中一個最佳方法。童協基金會 擁有一個良好的平台,可以讓我實踐地去幫助社區兒童。在繁忙的日子中抽出時 間去照顧小朋友是我最佳減壓的方法呢。


“Working with kids, especially those coming from humble background, is the best way of giving back to society” 「可以幫助到有需要的小 朋友是我回饋社會的其中 一個最好方法。」

你在伴讀計劃的工作過程中最享受的是什麼? 當我每次見到小朋友靜心聆聽故事及開懷地投入有關活動時,令我更積極地去籌 備及推動項目發展。

你從伴讀計劃中學懂了什麼? 這計劃肯定提昇了我的領導技能,我現在可擔任團隊中的領袖位置,同時令我在 溝通上更容易表達得清𥇦流𣈱。

你對有意參與伴讀計劃的朋友有什麼建議? 盡情去享受過程中的每一點滴,最重要是明白小朋友的內心世界及感受。這不但 令工作起來更輕鬆,同時有助籌劃伴讀環節更順暢。

Let's hear about our volunteers' experiences in the Jockey Club Kids4Kids Buddy Reading Program: “I think these Buddy Reading sessions are a great way for us to help these children learn English. In return, we reduce the stress we face from our busy schedules when we see the children. I am sure parents must be happy seeing their children learn.” - Volunteer from Singapore International School “We really like reading stories aloud to the kids. The children find it very interesting. They are very prompt in helping their classmates who cannot understand some of the words.” - Volunteer Leaders from HKU "Excellent! The book engaged the kids very well. It’s about an undersea school and when the teacher called student names to take attendance, we switched the character names with our kids’ names. That got them more focused on the story." - Volunteer Leaders from HKU

在我的童年時,幸運地有很多創作空間,大多數的遊戲是由我們自由創造的,從 生活點滴至歷險故事中,以不同的道具 – 野餐桌、雙層「碌架牀」、雪櫃包裝 紙盒也輕易地成為我們的堡壘和巴士,甚至是時光機,一幕幕童年珍貴片段歷歷 在目!

夠有機會閱讀數百本兒童創作的故事書,對我來說,這絕對是一個挑戰,但當評 審團選出一些由小朋友從他們的純真內心世界,寫出真誠的故事時,我們感到的 喜悅難以形容。(但坦白說,若以成人角度勇敢地去嘗試模擬這些小作家或插圖 繪畫家,絕對是不可能的,我還是勸喻大家不要嘗試吧。) 兩年前當我擔任評判時,我舉辦了一個「故 事插圖」工作坊,配合童協基金會「我的故 事創作」比賽,項目由香港語文教育及研究 常務委員會 (SCOLAR) 資助,目的是藉此 提昇香港學校的語文水平。我設辦工作坊的 主旨是希望協助學校及學員有一個全面標 準的參賽平台,技巧地運用以想象及構思, 編列圖畫,構成完整系列的插圖故事。透過 這兩小時的工作坊,鼓勵了很多學校共同參 與「我的故事創作」比賽。

聚焦點

請分享一下你在童協基金會參與義工服務的難忘經驗: 我擔任「我的故事創作」的寫作和插圖導師已有兩年。這項目的工作坊讓學生有 機會分享自己的想法,培養寫作和繪畫能力,闡述自己創作的故事。完成兩個工 作坊後,即使欠缺寫作經驗的學生也能自信地完成自己的故事創作和大家分享 成果。

按你的經驗,學生創作故事時遇到最大的困難是什麼? 大部份學生都會糾結於寫甚麼題材、詞彙不足和單詞拼寫,還有不知道想要向讀 者傳達甚麼信息。

「我的故事創作」工作坊如何幫助學生創作故事?

「我的故事創作」工作坊讓學生有機會與其他學員分享自己的構思。作為導師,我 們會運用不同方法引導學生創意思考,利用故事情節圖板幫助學生以插畫編排和 創作故事。寫作說明小冊子更為每位學員度身訂造,協助學生思考和寫出心中所 想,內容不設任何限制。

對於有興趣創作故事的學生,你會給他們甚麼建議呢? 從你日常生活和身邊發生的一點一滴來累積創作靈感,寫出你認識和喜歡的人和 物,運用你的好奇心編撰不同故事畫面。不用過份擔心拼寫和詞彙的問題,你的 老師、父母和朋友都會從旁協助你的。

序言 學無止境 其樂無窮

鄧婉穎女士 穎語工作室創辦人兼行政總裁 鄧婉穎女士由2015年起 支持童協基金會, 並親自為本刊設計封面。

當鄧婉穎女士 (Ms Mimi Tang) 三年前在慶祝生日之際,她懇辭各位好友的禮物, 並呼籲各人以捐款給慈善機構形式取代,會來得更有意義。鄧女士希望藉此能幫 助本地非牟利機構建立些有關兒童創作項目。鄧女士在網上瀏覽資料時發現了童 協基金會「童協」的工作,並決定捐助本機構的兒童故事創作比賽,讓所有兒童 在創作之餘,更可與其他小朋友分享他們的內心世界,鼓勵他們以圖畫及文字去 書寫創作。鄧女士一直以不同的形式支持「童協」,特別為本會的「語文發展回顧」 刊物設計封面 -「細心觀察,你可以看出另一角度嗎?你可以從而創作出你的故事 嗎?」 鄧婉穎女士曾擔任 Kering 集團的亞太區行政總裁,管理旗下多個國際著名高級品 牌,她被多本刊物稱為大慈善家、出色的企業家及大中華最成功的職業女性之一。 雖然只有中學學歷的鄧女士,憑著她一股正面自我推動的毅力,不斷觀摩學習, 成為今天全球卓越的企業家。她認為學境無涯,努力尋找新方向是主要元素。「一 向認為自己完全沒有繪畫天份的我,在一年前才去認識及學習 『曼荼羅』式繪 圖 (Mandala) ,到了今天我能在八至十小時內完成一張繪圖,太奇妙了!」鄧女 士欣然分享感受,「從短短一年的學習過程中,我深深愛上了繪畫創作,雖然我 不是一個天生有藝術細胞的人,由想象、幻想至創作,跳出框框,勇於嘗試,更 重要的是勤於練習。學無止境,對每事物都充滿著樂趣,從不放棄及創新,無論 遇到多少挫折,繼續尋找新的出路,樂在其中,往往意想不到的成果在終點等著 你。」
