To enhance students' resilience and foster positive thinking, HKIC organised a Whole Person Development Talk on 2 May 2024 at Sheung Shui campus. Mr. Eric YUON Fuk-lung, Principal of Buddhist Fat Ho Memorial College and a member of the Hong Kong Institute of Construction Management Board, was invited as the guest speaker to share insights on cultivating the spirit of perseverance.

Principal Yuon emphasised the importance of perseverance through sharing his experience of transitioning from a university lecturer to a secondary school principal. He mentioned that during his 15 years as a principal, he made it a habit to wake up at 5 a.m. every day in order to greet the students at school on time. Additionally, he participated in the "Oxfam Trailwalker" every year, leading by example and setting a good role model for students to cultivate punctuality, courtesy, and the spirit of perseverance. He believed that "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step" and encouraged students that perseverance does not require innate talent. By persisting, even in small matters, they will achieve success.

Furthermore, Principal Yuon shared his teaching experience. He regarded students as his own children and emphasised the importance of educating students regardless of their backgrounds. Instead of focusing solely on academic achievements, he placed great emphasis on nurturing students' character. He believed that the most crucial thing students need is respect, and he identified four key elements of love: care, responsibility, knowledge, and respect. He firmly believed that teaching is not about rote memorization but rather about igniting students' curiosity, guiding them towards self-directed learning, and showing respect and patience while waiting for their growth. He believed that every student has potential, and given the opportunity, they can move towards success.
