Lingnan University Service Day 2016, an annual event co-organised by Lingnan University’s Wofoo Leaders’ Network, UNI-Y, Golden Z Club, Service Learning Student Association and Student Services Centre was held on 10 September with the aim to introduce to first year students the University’s motto “Education for Service”.
With the University’s commitment to engage in providing services for neighboring community organisations, four volunteer-service related student societies and the Student Services Centre coordinated a diverse range of service projects on the event day. About a hundred new students of Lingnan participated in the event to provide services for 4 NGOs and around 150 service targets. The volunteers promoted social inclusiveness through fun games with ethnic minority children, collaborated with secondary school students to serve the elderly, organised campus visit for primary school students to understand university life, and outreached to elderlies living alone at public housing estates. These services demonstrated student volunteers’ dedication to help others, and filled the campus and nearby community with love and care.
