The annual Chinese New Year carnival “Spring Festival 2018” co-organised by the University’s Student Services Centre and Office of Global Education was held on 5 February.  The carnival was a joyful occasion to celebrate the Chinese New Year and for non-local staff and students to experience the traditional Chinese culture, as well as an opportunity to showcase their own culture through talent performances and activity booths.  Contributions from both local and non-local staff and students made Lingnan a harmonious international community.

On 3 February, the Office of Service-Learning collaborated with Tuen Mun District Council and Free Methodist Church Leung Tin Children & Youth Integrated Services Centre to organise the “Low-Salt & Low-Sugar Cooking Competition”.  The purpose of the event was to cultivate the culture of healthy diet and healthy cooking among the public, and improve Tuen Mun residents’ knowledge on low-salt and low-sugar dietary habits.

With a generous donation by the Lam Woo Foundation Limited, the “Lam Woo First Generation University Education Fund” was established.  The fund will support student exchange programmes, one of the essential features of Lingnan’s liberal arts education.  Students with financial needs who are the first generation in their families receiving university education are eligible to benefit from the fund.

“Nu’er Hong” is a traditional Chinese spirit served at wedding time when a daughter was to be married.  Mo Lai Yan-chi’s drama Women In Red (its title in Chinese pronounces as “Nu’er Hong” as well) tells a series of true stories and brings social issues to life, in hope of evoking echoes and reflections from the audience.  In what way did Mo become associated with Lingnan University?  How has she presented interpersonal conflicts to different people and touched their hearts from a female perspective?

The University has recently strengthened its global links with the establishment of new agreement on academic cooperation with Faculty of Sciences, Kasetsart University in Thailand in February.
