The constituent Colleges deliver ‘student-orientated teaching’, creating a congenial community for students to interact closely with teachers and peers. The Colleges organize general education courses and cultural, recreational and sports activities to sharpen the minds of students, cultivating in them an awareness of the world, and nurturing in them a sense of responsibility towards it. Students are encouraged to develop their full potential through participation in various activities. Shaw College has launched High Table Dinners from this academic year with the aim of expanding students’ horizon and enhancing their sense of belonging to the College through sharing by the guest speakers. Teachers are also invited to take part in the dinners, so they can have better interaction with the students. All students of Year 2 or above are welcome to register for the dinners and some seats are reserved for non- local students. There is a pre-dinner reception where students can chat with guests and get to know the teachers in attendance. The dinner and talk will then follow. Two students are responsible for hosting the talk and interviewing the guest speaker. This is designed to give students more knowledge about the speakers and to teach them the skills of research and interviewing. Six High Table Dinners (see table) have been organized since September. Each attracted over 100 participants including students, teachers and College trustees. The guest speakers were chosen from different sectors of the community. 我看高桌晚宴 I’m All for It 徐耀光先生(书院校董) Mr. Tsui Yiu-kwong (member of the Board of Trustees, Shaw College) 「它提供珍贵机会予学生在聚会时与陌生人建 立人际网络,在轻松的晚宴中与老师交流互动, 从聆听主讲嘉宾的独特识见中获益。这过程正是 体现书院制促进全人发展的好例子。」 ‘I highly commend the High Table Dinners for being valuable learning opportunities. Students can network with strangers at the reception, interact with teachers over a relaxed dinner, and broaden their perspectives by listening to the guest speakers. The process is a good example of total education as manifested by the college system of CUHK.’ (To be continued) 高桌上的高识卓见 High Minds at the High Table 逸夫书院院长沈祖尧教授(中)介绍主讲嘉宾庄陈有先生(左) Prof. Joseph J.Y.
