賽馬會慈善信託基金項目

橄欖成長基金有幸獲得香港賽馬會的捐助,開展兩個重要項目 —「賽馬會欖球齊起動計劃 - 一『欖』雄心」及「賽馬會『友情達陣』欖球計劃」。兩大項目旨在透過不同類型的活動,提升學員的領導能力、自身潛力,並讓他們學會尊重別人,從而為社區帶來正向改變。這些計劃涵蓋範圍廣泛,包括女性專設項目以至專業教練培訓等。

賽馬會「友情達陣」欖球計劃

「賽馬會『友情達陣』欖球計劃」以體育為載體,向來自學術和社會經濟背景各異的香港青年傳授重要技能,以促進社會凝聚力。

 

在香港賽馬會的無間支持下,本地華裔和少數族裔學生以及內地學生得以聯繫起來,並通過國際非政府組織 PeacePlayers International 特設的課程,建立團體合作、尊重、正面態度、決心、領導能力和多元化等軟實力。

Train the Trainer

Teachers from all participating schools will have the opportunity to attend a “Train the Trainer” workshop. Upon successful completion, these teachers will become PLUS coaches, responsible for English learning outcomes. They will collaborate with our PLAY coaches (HKRUCF Part-Time Coaches), who focus on rugby learning outcomes in year 2. To ensure a seamless and effective delivery of content, a curriculum specifically designed around play-based learning theory and practices will be implemented.

Fun Days

All participating schools will have the opportunity to attend Rugby Fun Days, funded by generous donors. These events aim to foster connections between students, club coaches, and players of the same age group. By participating in these fun-filled days, students are encouraged to further engage in Hong Kong China Rugby community activities, which provide valuable opportunities for English language practice and strengthen their connection with local rugby clubs.

Hong Kong Sevens Visit

Attending major sports events as spectators can be a truly enlightening and inspiring experience, and the same applies to the beneficiaries of the REAL program. To further ignite their passion for sports, all participating students will have the incredible opportunity to be invited to the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens by Rugby For Good. This exclusive invitation aims to boost their motivation, allowing them to witness firsthand the excitement and energy of this prestigious sporting event.

WHY REAL?

Students have the opportunity to cultivate an interest in learning English outside of the traditional classroom setting, fostering language skills and embracing diverse skills and values through active participation in the program.

All participating students will receive exclusive program perks, including an official program T-Shirt, the REAL Program logbook, a souvenir, and a certificate of completion, recognizing their dedication and achievement.

Students involved in the program will be privileged with an invitation to attend and immerse themselves in the annual Cathay/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens event, providing an unforgettable experience and a deeper connection to the world of rugby.

  • Is it an automatic confirmation once the application is submitted by the school?
    No, since there is a quota of 40 schools, we cannot guarantee automatic confirmation when schools submit their application. If we receive more than 40 applications, we will determine the successful 40 schools by lucky draw.
  • For the session venue, why are there 3 options? How is venue use determined?
    You can choose the venue once you submit the online application. However, we cannot guarantee that the pitch will be available on the date and time you select. If the pitch is not available, we may need to hold the session in the school.
  • Are the lessons delivered only in English? Will the coaches be able to speak Cantonese?
    All lessons will be delivered in English, so the teacher may need to support the students in Cantonese if needed.
  • Can the 4 sessions be attended by different students to allow more involvement by the school? Also, can more than 30 students attend each of the sessions?
    Given the progression curriculum with REAL, the same students will need to attend all 4 sessions. Also, only 2 coaches are assigned to each school to attend every session. To maintain the quality of the sessions with a ratio of 1 coach to maximum 15 students, each session can only have a maximum of 30 students.
  • What is the Train the Trainer Programme?
    This is a new addition to the REAL Programme. It provides a capacity building opportunity for teachers, allowing them to take a more active role during and more importantly beyond the 4 sessions. Teachers can join workshops provided by Rugby For Good, with the content built around the theory and practical aspects of the project curriculum, including how the programme is delivered through play-based methodology.
