Sik Sik Yuen Ho Dao Elder Academy

As Hong Kong’s population is ageing, there is a rising demand for third age education. To cope with the demand of different districts, we have established the first learning centre for the elderly in 2010, which is called Sik Sik Yuen Ho Dao Elder Academy, which serve the elderly in Yuen Long and Tin Shui Wai, and where they can learn in formal school environment. By this the goal of giving the elderly some meaningful things to do and learn can be achieved. The courses offered at elderly learning centre are diverse, including healthcare, computer, English language, Chinese calligraphy, art etc. Senior citizens who are interested can freely enroll in the courses, which gives them the opportunity to return to school and enjoy meaningful learning life.
