Macao Base for Primary and Secondary Education in Humanities and Social Sciences has been established for four years. It has been cooperating with primary and secondary schools in Macao to jointly promote literature, history and art education and cultivate diverse talents. On the afternoon of May 18, 2022 (Wednesday), Deputy Director CHEANG Neng Ian, Principal Admin Officer KUAN Sio In and Admin Staff HO Sok Fong of UM Centre for Chinese History and Culture (CCHC) visited The Affiliated School of the University of Macau to discuss future cooperation with the school staff.
During the meeting, the Principal LOU Leng Heng said that the school attaches great importance to the education of culture and history and the school has launched the “Chinese Culture Award Program” for many years. Each year, there are different themes, such as martial arts, traditional games, literary classics, etc., attracting more than 100 students to participate in. In addition, Principal LOU also suggested that performing traditional Chinese stories in the form of English drama could arouse students’ motivation and interest in learning and help to train students’ language skills and enhance their national identity. In this way, the quality of education in Macao can also be improved.
