Life Buddies Programme - Be a Government Official for a Day

Date: 20/05/2019

Tong Kun Chi Alpha (5B) participated in “Be a Government Official for a Day - Heads of Departments Edition”, the job shadowing programme launched by the Life Buddies Mentoring Scheme. Alpha was selected as one of the 46 students to attend the programme in Hong Kong.


On 25th April 2019, Alpha shadowed Ms Lau Yim Alice, Permanent Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury (Treasury). In the course of the programme, Alpha, together with a student from another school, shared their insights on various issues and future plans with Ms Lau. They also took part in a government internal conference and visited the Government Logistics Department. Not only did this programme enhance students’ understanding of government operations, but it also helped inspire students to develop positive values and multi-perspective thinking skills. Beyond doubt, Alpha has gained invaluable experiences from this programme.
