Background and Objectives

"C-for-Chinese@JC" Project is created and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, co-created by Hong Kong Christian Service, HKSKH Lady MacLehose Centre, The Education University of Hong Kong, The University of Hong Kong and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Since its launch in 2016, the Project has adopted a "home-school-community" collaborative model to foster and create culturally responsive education for kindergartens, a pleasurable and meaningful learning environment in improving the Non-Chinese speaking (NCS) Ethnic Minorities (EM) students for Chinese proficiency and Chinese students for social competence.

Building on past learnings, Phase II of the Project commending in 2022 bids to support kindergarten with a set of "Culturally Responsive Education Benchmarks". This practical framework aims to enhance the Chinese learning and social-emotional competence of both NCS EM and Chinese students; as well as their transitions to primary education. By 2026, the Project targets to support 42,000 kindergarten students, including 5,100 NCS EM students and their families.
