Mind Broadening Club

Objectives

The Mind Broadening Club provides opportunities for students to acquire knowledge beyond textbooks on such topics as Hong Kong culture, social issues and international news. By doing so, we hope that students can understand more about society and the world they are living in, thus nurturing analytic ability , as well as developing world vision.

Contents

We organise two inter-class common knowledge contests, for F.2 and F.3 respectively, every year. The contest consists of 3 rounds, which are in academic, news and themed topics. Past themes included the Olympics, Hong Kong movies, Hong Kong heritage, etc.  Those interesting themes arouse students’ enthusiasm in participating in the competition. 

On the other hand, the Club sends representatives to participate in various quiz competitions every year.  One of the most prominent competitions we join is the Hong Kong Cup Diplomatic Knowledge Contest.  It requires extensive knowledge in diplomatic history and news, as well as techniques of public speaking. Our members have also joined the Hong Kong Inter-School Common Knowledge Contest, Hong Kong Secondary School Chinese Medicine Competition, etc since 2002, and attained numerous achievements.

Features

Student organisations that join quiz competitions are usually named the Quiz Team. However, our Club is called Mind Broadening, which shows the feature of the Club. What we value is not the results of the competitions but the training of thinking. "Mind Broadening" means broadening the mind through learning extensive knowledge, with knowledge being the basis of thinking. Through the quiz competitions, members can read and learn a wide range of knowledge, which lays the foundation for their intellectual development. Another feature is that the Club provides public speaking training, in order to help students learn to express their thoughts effectively.
