Thank you for your support to Rotaract District Service Project - Rocreator. We had a fun and meaningful Chinese New Year party with children from New Home Association and Christian Family Service Centre on 22nd January, 2017 (Sunday). More than 140 children, their family members and Rotaractors participated in the party.
Other than having joyful games with eco-topics, we ordered vegetarian food so as to be more environmentally friendly. Besides, we rented reusable tableware instead of using plastic plates and forks. Over 100 stationery items and toys collected from our friendly Rotaractors had been donated to the two centres for the children.
For the most exciting moment of the event, participants were altogether to set up a huge domino structure with different parts. It represented that we would achieve a great success if everyone could work together. We would like to invite everyone to make their greatest effort to protect our mother Earth like what we did.
We would like to thank you all the parties and donors involved in this service project. The project would not be successful without your support.
Thank you all for attending the 7th Joint Presidents' Meeting cum Reunion Dinner. Wishing you all a new year filled with joy, health and happiness!

District Leadership Training Meeting (DLTM) aims to enhance the leadership skills and team building of incoming board members of both university-based and community-based Rotaract clubs.
Programme of DLTM 15-16 involved a free-flow workshop, president-elects session and challenging mass tasks. Through the one-day programme, participants could understand more about their own leadership styles, and learn about different techniques and attitudes about balancing life.
The workshops offered 9 different sessions led by experienced Rotaract leaders in our District. The topics captured common challenges faced by leaders in a team, which gave insights to Rotaractors to deal with their situations in term of office and their life.
President-Elects to experience challenges on their own during PE session. Through the tasks, they reflected different characters of team, cooperating with each other and improved communication skills. They also got chances to discuss club and district issues with Incoming DRR Lok-chi.
Other participants were given a list of tasks to complete and gain more than 3450 points. They were divided into different teams with the same goal. Participants entered different classrooms and experienced tasks to enhance their teamwork and leadership skills.
District Conference gives Rotaractors throughout the district a chance to congregate and celebrate the year’s successes. The conference also provides a platform to highlight the RI theme and correlates it to the clubs’ projects by focusing on fellowship, promoting community service, increasing international understanding and enhancing professional development in a context of friendship and camaraderie. It recognises service programmes, projects and public relation achievements in the district. It also provides opportunities for networking, inspirational addresses and discussion of Rotaract-related issues. Meanwhile it is a good timing for Rotaractors to exchange information and ideas, evaluating completed projects, planning for new strategies for club activities, sustainability and future development. The event also provides a memorable experience of fellowship.

It aimed to promote social harmony between the disabled and the abled by enhancing Rotaractors and participants' understanding to the disabled. Partnering with Direction Association for the Handicapped, the project included a workshop and a walkathon.
Participants experienced daily life of disabled people in wheelchairs, including public transport access, shopping and having meals. Many participants revealed that the tasks were more challenging than their own expectations.
The fund-raising walkathon was held the week after. Participants faced different levels of physically-challenged situations during the 3km walk along Shing Mun River in Sha Tin. More than HK$100,000 was raised for the beneficiary organization to improve their supporting service to their members.

First Step To Rotaract 2015-2016 came to a satisfactory close. Orientation Day was held in Sassoon Road Assembly Hall, The University of Hong Kong on 24th January 2016, the coldest day since 1957, to provide fellowship programmes, team-building activities, and training sessions for the incoming club officers.
District Governor Peter Pang, Youth Service Committee Chair PDG Eugene Fong, Incoming Youth Service Committee Chair Hubert Chan, District Rotaract Chair Francis Au and Incoming District Rotaract Chair Garrick Tang attended and showed immeasurable support from Rotary. Following the kick-off ceremony, PDG Eugene and DRC Francis introduced the background and development of Rotary and the relationship between Rotary and Rotaract respectively. District Rotaract Representative Lim-yan Tam and Immediate Past District Rotaract Representative Jessica Wo delivered Rotaract knowledge to participants as well. Then, participants were divided into groups and led by facilitators to undergo ice-breaking and team-building tasks. Throughout the day, not only did participants learn a lot Rotary and Rotaract knowledge, but they also made friends with the other Rotaractors from different clubs. These laid a good foundation for their Rotaract life and started their 「我」的扶青時代, which was the theme of First Step To Rotaract this year.
One week later, Training Camp was held in Po Leung Kuk–Jockey Club Tai Tong Holiday Camp on 30th to 31st January 2016. This peaceful and sunny weekend commenced with “City Walking” in Yuen Long, at which the groups proceeded towards several checkpoints to complete tasks and reach “Faith”, “Sharing”, “Team spirit” and “Responsibility” – essential elements for a committee or a club. After that, the groups headed the campsite – “My” Rotarland – and carried out checkpoint tasks related to roles and responsibilities of club officers. Together with the debriefing held by facilitators, participants learnt more about their own positions as well as others’ positions, which built mutual understanding and tolerance among a committee. Furthermore, participants experienced night walk to train up self-confidence and make a breakthrough.
On the next day, there were four battle tasks to test the tacit understanding and the division of labour among a group. Each group strived for excellence in the contests of wits and strength. The winning groups were given prizes in the closing ceremony. Chairman of First Step To Rotaract 2015-2016 Kenneth Chan reminded participants in his closing remarks that the end of this event meant the start of their Rotaract era. It was hoped that Organising Committee members, helpers, cameramen, facilitators and participants enjoyed the event, gained the advantage and brought it to the club and to District Rotaract.
Rotaract Cup Football Competition had been successfully held on 29th November, 2015 (Sunday).

Throughout the event, participants not only built sense of belongings to his/her own club and Rotaract, but also got to know more about each other and interact with other clubs. "Fellowship" is an important element in Rotary and Rotaract that we believe service is based on fellowship while we can gain fellowship through service. Hope all the participants enjoyed the day which was full of sweats and laughters.
