Let me thank God who gives us the strength to face this fast-changing society. Events of social action, reforms in services and high standard of demand from service users are engines of changes. To reform is always not an easy task. Instead of just following what the others do, we would like to deliver services that truly meet the needs of service users.
This year, we enlarged and deepened the scale of our supporting services for demented elderly, so more elderly people could be served. Meanwhile, to further develop the services established in the past years, we renovated our elderly centres and improved the centre facilities. As the 15-year free quality education will be launched in September 2017, our early childhood education will undergo a reform to respond to the changes. To be ready for this transition, we carried out preparation work aimed to create favourable environment, institutions and curriculum for our teachers, staff and students. We also made a sharp turn in terms of the direction of counselling services from the general public to child care. However, it is still in a stage of exploring and we wish God guiding us to provide better services to children and parents.
On behalf of the social service committee, I would like to give thanks to our staff and teachers who endeavour to contribute. To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever.
