About the workshop:

In order to enable teaching/ supporting staff to have a better understanding of the real life situations of ethnic minorities and how the religion affects their daily life, the captioned activity is organized. Participants will be arranged to visit a Sikh Temple in Wan Chai where they can gain first-hand experience of the ethnic minorities through face-to-face interaction with the people there. The visit will be toured by the professional staff of the Hong Kong Christian Services (HKCS) who will introduce you the religious characteristics of Sikh people and discuss possible strategies to promote cross-cultural harmony in classroom and school. A briefing session will also be conducted to familiarize the participants with the taboos and etiquettes of the religion before the visit.
