New to the Theatre : School Culture Day Scheme

The Leisure and Cultural Services Department strives to offer various education programmes and activities in arts and culture to schools, aiming at broadening students’ learning horizons.  Since its launching in the 2001/02 school year, the School Culture Day Scheme has been especially well received by teachers, students and parents alike, recording a participation of over 1 000 schools and a cumulative attendance of over 1.9 million.   We will go on with our effort in organising a wide range of programmes and activities held at different performance venues, museums and libraries for the School Culture Day Scheme.

Performing arts programmes in the School Culture Day Scheme cover different art forms, including Chinese opera, dance, music, theatre and film, etc.  From the museums and libraries, a variety of interesting and informative programmes are organised so that students can learn above and beyond their textbooks, expanding their horizon for self-cultivation.  Furthermore, arts accessibility service is available to special schools for selected programmes to encourage participation and promote inclusive arts.   We also provide delightful and interactive programmes tailor-made for kindergarteners to foster an interest in the arts and culture from a young age. 

The 2022/23 School Culture Day Scheme features over 600 number of performances and activities, over 90% of which are admission-free.  All local schools, especially those new to the School Culture Day Scheme, are cordially invited to join.  Let’s open more doors for students to enjoy arts and culture outside the classroom!
