Education brings change. TREATS’ Inclusion Education Programmes are available to children and youth aged 3–18 in kindergartens, primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong.
TREATS’ social inclusion education curriculum in Hong Kong aims at equipping students to understand the key components of social inclusion such as equal participation, children’s rights, diversity, empathy, acceptance, appreciation and participation.
The theme-based, interactive education talks and workshops, under this inclusion education programme, enable students to reflect on their attitude and behaviour towards people with different abilities and backgrounds, learn to respect the rights of each person and develop key skills in dealing with people from all walks of life, to enable them to stand up against bullying, prejudice and discrimination.
Based on the Bringing Everyone Together children’s book series, this storytelling workshop shares the experiences of the three main characters – Little Circle, Big Square and Jolly Bean. Using interactive games, storytelling and art activities, the workshop brings the inclusion message of acceptance, diversity and respect to pre-school children in a joyful and relaxing way.
By having interactive discussions on age appropriate topics for students in different grades, this activity aims to educate primary students about the key components of social inclusion, such as equal participation, diversity, acceptance and appreciation.
These six workshops on different social inclusion topics are designed based on the students’ age and growth needs. Activities are highly interactive and relevant to daily life. Students are encouraged to participate, share and get involve throughout the workshops. Games, discussions and interactive activities are organized to facilitate learning.
