It’s Team Spirit

The A.S. Watson Group Hong Kong Student Sports Awards have been running for 16 years, providing inspiration and recognition for some of the amazing sporting talents in Hong Kong’s primary, secondary and special schools. Since 2005, more than 13,000 students have won the awards, and we are proud to have been able to continue with the programme this year, despite the limitations on gatherings as a result of the pandemic. This year’s Leadership Workshop was held online rather than in person, but interest was just as strong as usual, and attendance was as high as ever. In two hours, participants completed a range of activities to sharpen their communication skills, improve cooperation and hone their problem-solving abilities. Their team spirit and commitment showed that despite the challenges they face, their motto remains “Yes I Can!”

Kitchen Uh-oh



A.S. Watson Group and Hong Kong Christian Service co-organised “Joyful Brain Health”, a train-the-trainer programme which equipped corporate and elderly volunteers with cognitive training knowledge in order to help train their peers with mild cognitive impairment through games and cooking. The programme not only raised awareness on dementia, but also promoted neighbour support and fostered inter-generational harmony.

As part of the programme, Kitchen Uh-oh activity turned elders into waiters/waitresses, allowing them interact and share with volunteers from ASW Group in a fun way, which helps the elders cultivate a sense of self-worthiness by active engagement in the whole programme.
