Inspiring Lives is Education at its Finest (Headline Daily / Apple Daily) Back

Education is all about changing lives for the better. It is most compelling when our minds are inspired. Three prominent figures of BHJS have been interviewed by the media recently. If you are contemplating a change to your life, read their real-life stories.

Dr Lam Ching-choi is the CEO of Haven of Hope Christian Service as well as Chairman of the Community Investment and Inclusion Fund Committee. He grew up in poverty and lived in a house in Kam Tin that could not even withstand rainstorms. Luckily, he was one of the rare few who had an opportunity to step out of the village and study in a Band 1 EMI school in Kowloon Tong, the BHJS. Ranked among the lowest in Form 3, he took a gloomy view of life. He experienced the biggest turning point when he became a Christian in Form 4. With the relentless encouragement from teachers at BHJS and warm neighbor, he became a diligent student who was eventually admitted to the Faculty of Medicine of HKU. The selfless contribution of these people made him take on leadership roles that help pass the torch of caring spirit from one generation to the next.

‘No cross, no crown’. Only through tough times do we develop a strong character and become successful. Ms Wong Lee-lee, principal of BHJS, grew up in a family of seven members living in a tin-sheeted structure on the roof. When she was a student, she had to lend a helping hand to her parents who made money sewing at home. This is how she learned to be resilient and grateful, and thrived through challenging times. Throughout her career as an educationalist, Ms Wong values the importance of experiential learning where students participate in community service projects that teach civic responsibility and help address the needs of the community.
