The Multiculturalism in Action (MIA) Project is continuing its community outreach program, FUN with Interculturalism, in this academic year. On 30 September 2016, the MIA was invited to host intercultural activities for the Experiential Learning Day at Valtorta College.
An “Exhibition on South Asian Communities in Hong Kong” was displayed, more than 200 students joined the docent tour. They were divided into small groups and led by our docents for detailed explanations on the Indian, Nepali, and Pakistani communities in Hong Kong.

Aside from learning the facts on the history and contribution of South Asians in Hong Kong, students were shown how to play cricket, a popular sport all over South Asia.

There were also kabaddi sessions held by our instructors, Dr. Wyman Tang and Mr. Alan Tse. Kabaddi is a traditional game played throughout South Asia which develops the physique, team work, and strategy. Today, kabaddi is an official event in the Asian Games. Both students and teachers enjoyed a lot.
