Hi Everyone! My name is Jack and I am from Hong Kong, born and raised. My mother is Australian and my father is Chinese. I started working for World Family Club as I had been interested in theatre and had been teaching English at the time. I felt World Family was a great opportunity to engage with kids in a more interactive and fun way.
One of my favorite memories with WFC was on one of the World Family camps, we left the city to explore a farm in the New Territories. When it came to feeding the horses, one young member was terrified that the horse would bite his hand if he offered him a carrot to eat. After a while (and after trying my best to convince him to try), the boy gave the horse a carrot and in that very instance, learned there was nothing to be afraid of. By the end of our session, he couldn’t get enough of feeding the horses and even asked for extra carrot sticks! This really reminded me that learning can’t be isolated in a classroom or within the confines of a prescribed subject. It reminded me that powerful lessons must be derived from the outside world because you never know when you’re going to learn something new.
When I’m performing, I enjoy seeing all the smiles on the members’ faces. I feel a real sense of gratitude when I see that the children want to be there and respond so well to the songs and dances. Performing can be quite tiring, but it is always worth it.I am glad that an organization such as World Family exists. All of us here really care about making sure that members not only learn but enjoy learning as well. Many studies have indicated that psychological well-being is the greatest predictor of academic success and yet, so many learning styles endorsed in Hong Kong demand results without regard to the detrimental effect on a child’s mental health. World Family works hard to ensure that members who step through our door enter a learning environment in which they want to be in and thrive as a result.
