Further to the online “Pastel Nagomi Art Workshop” of December last year, the I·CARE Cross-generational Integration Programme of this academic year organised the “Kalimba Workshop” in the form of small-group video conference again. This workshop consisted of two sessions which were held on the 28th of last month and the 7th of this month. Participants including seven pairs of CUHK students and their respective senior family members were led by a veteran music tutor to learn the basic skills of playing Kalimba and practise the well-known songs like The Moon Represents My Heart, Galactic Repairman, and Happy Birthday to You. The workshop also comprised a sing-along-with-Kalimba segment and a quiz game to enhance the participants’ affinity. It was great fun.
The I·CARE Cross-generational Integration Programme aims at facilitating interaction between the aged and the young, so as to promote mutual understanding and respect across different generations. The keynote of this academic year lies on the reinforcement of communication between students and their senior family members for achieving a harmonious family relationship. To enrich the variety of activities and to cater to the participants’ tastes, this Centre is inviting CUHK students to offer suggestions on the topic of the activities with small-group video conferencing format. Any ideas could be sent to Miss He via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. As a token of our appreciation, students whose entries are received on or before 30 April 2021 (Friday) and adopted by this Centre finally will obtain the CUHK 2021 Desktop Calendar. This calendar had received an overwhelming response once released and were sold out swiftly.
