Objective

The main objective of the “School Culture Day Scheme” (the Scheme) is to encourage students to visit our performing arts venues, museums and libraries during school hours in the school year to take part in cultural programmes specifically designed for them. It is hoped that through the Scheme, students would be encouraged to cultivate and creative mind and regard arts, history and science as part of their learning process and an integral part of everyday life. Apart from stimulating the creative thinking of students, it is hoped that the elements of arts, history and science in these programmes may be integrated into school context and daily life. Ideally, it is expected that each student under the Scheme would have participated at least once in these cultural activities within the school year.

Target

Performing Arts Activities:
Since these activities are targeted at students of P.1 to S.3 (except programmes by Film Programme Office), applications in relation to this age group will enjoy higher priority for consideration. (For S.4 to S.6 students, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department encourages them to participate in the 2013/14 "Art Experience Scheme for Senior Secondary Students" and "Arts Criticism Project for Senior Secondary Students".)

Museum and Visual Arts, Library Activities: P.1 – S.6 students.

Selection Criteria

A quota is set for each activity. If the total number of students enrolling in an activity under the scheme from the applicant schools exceeds the quota, places will be allocated by computer ballot, taking into consideration the following factors:

i) Priority will be given to applicant schools which have never participated in the scheme.
ii) For applicant schools which have previously participated in the scheme, their order of priority will be determined by factors such as the records of their last participation, including the students’ actual attendance rate and record of cancellation or absence. The allocation of places will then be determined by computer ballot according to their order of priority.
