About Us

In the 21st century, the world is becoming smaller and drawing us closer together. The ThinkSeries Charity Foundation aims to connect, extend and challenge the perspectives of our next generation to become global citizens. Through what we organise, we provide a platform to showcase our students’ vision, celebrate their innovative ideas, and ultimately cultivate a caring, thinking generation on a journey of discovery. We encourage our students to share their perspectives and contribution in action through Think Again Awards, and the Think Series Leadership Development Programme. The ThinkSeries Charity Foundation was established in 2011. We would like to celebrate this, our 10th year, by carrying out a series of events and activities within the Hong Kong community.

The Competition

In this campaign, students read, write and speak. Through reading and interpreting selected Classic stories, students’ creativity can go wild.

This campaign aims to create a pleasurable language learning environment providing opportunities for primary students to unleash their curiosity in the world of a classic novel, to use their imagination and creativity to retell or interpret what they have read through a multi-tiered competition and a series of celebratory activities carried out within their communities. This series of activities and events combines a fun-filled learning process, creative outputs and learner-led celebration.

We believe every youngster can read well, can understand well and formulate their understanding in their own “language” through diverse forms or mediums. Putting Understanding Up Front can help our learners to step into the world of the imagination and through reading classic stories students’ cultural understanding can be enriched and their curiosity can be stimulated.

Goals of the Campaign:
  1. To stimulate students’ interest in reading classic stories
  2. To boost students’ confidence in their ability to read and interpret in English
  3. To nurture students’ appreciation of artistic communication
  4. To promote language arts within the community
