OVERVIEW

Playtao Foreverland (“Foreverland”), a campus-based after-school programme aims to build up confidence in students of their own ability, self-esteem and self-efficacy, and empower them to find their own tools to build their own sense of self. Foreverland provides holistic support to primary school students through daily academic support and broad-based learning opportunities by dedicated mentors.

SVHK’s ROLE

SVhk as a concept initiator and incubator facilitating cross-sector collaboration with corporate and community organizations

HIGHLIGHTS / PARTNERSHIPS

·  Balance of learning and playing during after-school hours
The programme targets children of low-income families by raising their skills and exposure through multi-disciplinary, extra-curricular learning, while freeing up their parents to pursue employment and thus better the lives of the entire family.

·  Engaging with teachers and parents on children’s holistic development
Parent support groups, parent classes and regular meetings with teachers are conducted by Playtao Education Officers and trained educational counsellors / social workers to closely monitor the holistic growth of students.

IMPACT

“Our school has been collaborating with Playtao to run after-school programs for a few years – a great experience. We agree with their mission to provide all kinds of development activities for our students in addition to homework tutoring. These activities widen their exposure and help them to develop in an all-rounded manner. Our vision is clearly aligned with Playtao – an ideal partner!” - Vice Principal Fung, YCH Law Chan Chor Si Primary School “I witnessed significant improvement in Ho Tin. Since most of his homework has been completed at school, we are less worried about his homework progress and there is more quality family bonding time in the evening. I appreciate Playtao’s various activities, which widen Ho Tin’s exposure. I taught Ho Tin to thank his teachers, who often encourage him – improving his confidence and self esteem.” - Parent of a Foreverland student
