Motivational Talk and Film Showing
Mr Lai Chi Wai, a rock climber, sport climber, and motivational speaker from Hong Kong was invited to give a motivational talk to our students on 6th January, 2023. He is a four-time champion of the Asian Rock Climbing Championships and the world's first Chinese winner of the X-Game's extreme sports. However, in 2011, he got into a serious traffic accident that left him paraplegic. Although he encountered such traumatic life experience, he did not give up hope and continued to strive on. He even challenged himself by climbing up Lion Rock in a wheelchair. On January 16, 2021, Lai attempted to climb the 320-metre Nina Tower at Urban Climb 300M+. It was a fund-raising activity organized by Ignite Community Services, a non-profit-making organization, for spinal cord injured patients. The whole climbing process was filmed and the film was shown to Forms One to Five students at Day 6 assembly.

Mr Lai’s speech deeply moved our students and encouraged them to face adversities positively. The talk and the film showing were well received, and a wheelchair climbing experience is going to be held on 14th January, 2023 to let our students experience challenging themselves and stepping out of their comfort zones.
