Time:               9:00am – 6:00pm

At the beginning of the new academic year (AY2022/23), the Honours Academy (HA) welcomes our third cohort. The annual leadership training camp was held for the whole HA family on the 17th and 18th of September, 2022. It was conducted by the professional trainers from the Training Master International Ltd, at the Breakthrough Youth Village.To welcome the new third cohort, the HA Board Chairman, Prof YV Hui (Provost and Vice-President, Academic and Research), along with HA Board Members Prof Hon Chan (Vice-President, Learning and Student Experience) and Dr Tom Fong (Vice-President, Organisational Development), especially came all the way to cheer all the attending HA students on!

On the first day, together with some of the 1st and 2nd cohort HA family members, the fresh blood got to know their own leadership traits and their peers quickly through a range of ice-breaking and leadership-building activities. Later in the afternoon, members experienced a floor curling competition led by experienced coaches. Our members are divided into six teams. Within each team, our HA members needed to communicate on how to get the rocks closer to the house than the opposing team in order to win the game. Team spirit could easily grow out of friendly competitions where they were tested in terms of precision, strategies, focus, communication, etiquette, and resilience!

The second day of the training camp requires members’ physical capability. Under detailed instructions from the trainers, our HA members started their day with rock climbing and rope courses. Everyone was pushing their limit to finish their task. Sweating but smiling; exhausting but exhilarating: our HA aspiring leaders were all equipped with a set of invigorating soft and hard skills to build group cohesion, explore conflict, and examine leadership roles, all in our HA’s tailor-made experiential learning experience.
