Our Theme & Theme Color 2012 - 2013
â€œIgnite the spark, light up the darkâ€? is our theme this year. The theme purports we give the hope to the hopeless, and spread it to this chaotic world just as what the community service and international service do. Echoing the theme, the element chosen is Sparks, which shine in the dark albeit being trivial and the best embodies the nature of our work - although the limited impact we have on society, we take the initiative, start small and think big. Sky Blue, echoing the theme element, is exclusively selected as our theme color for its sky nature. Blue, as always, represents calm and relaxation which counteract chaos and agitation. Through opening the flow of communication, blue can broaden your perspective in learning new information. Among all the family of blue, Sky Blue is chosen because it especially promotes the feeling of peace, optimism and hopeful.
International Â Service Â
Magnificent Â Mongolia Â 2012 Â In this summer semester break, 25 HKU Rotaractors made an 11day visit to Mongolia for our annual international service delegation. Series of activities of community services, cultural exchange and professional development were held during the 11day visit. We were very glad to have made friends with local Mongolian Rotaractors and were grateful for their help in hosting us throughout the visit. All of us have had wonderful experience in serving the Mongolian children, trying out traditional nomadic life, and getting to see a great deal of local wonders. For those who have missed this chance, please look forward to our winter international service trip to Australia. 4

Our Installation Ceremony
The 43rd Rotaract Club, HKUSU Installation Ceremony is happening on July 14. This year, our theme is â€œMake your mark, ignite the sparkâ€?, meaning that our board member will try our best to make a difference in our society. Spark is also the representation of the board, symbolizing the warmth and strength we bring to our society. Through the Installation Ceremony, the Executive Committee member is officially introduced. In the following Rotaract Year, the whole board will devote themselves to run the Club, serve the community and work with the Rotary Club. It is hoped that we can show our gratitude to the immediate past officers for their contribution made last year in the Installation Ceremony. Also, we believe that a stronger bonding can be built between our club and other Rotarians and Rotaractors. We would be most pleasured if any of you are joining the ceremony to share the joy with us. 5
April 2012 Public Speaking Workshop We invited Mr. Akash Karia, an award-winning speaker, author and public speaking expert, to conduct the Public Speaking Workshop. We aimed to equip our members with presentation and persuasion skills for occasions such as job interviewing and idea presenting. Throughout the one and a half hour, our participants learned how to express ideas publicly and thoroughly as they were guided by Mr. Karia to overcome difficulties like anxiety and gesture problems they would encounter.
