Reflections on Mock Legislative Council 2014 from 2 students of Chiu Lut Sau Memorial Secondary School
1. From Secondary 5B Lau Choi Yee – Best Performance Member
I would like to give my sincere gratitude to RAAS for organizing such an inspiring and informative event, Mock LegCo. Being voted to be the government officer, I understand further the difficulties and obstacles the government encounters in the procedure of law-making and policy establishment. It affords me the insight into current affairs, strengthening my sense of civic responsibility. Had I never joined this programme, I would not be able to experience the real-life situation of a government officer in a LegCo meeting.
2. From Secondary 5B Kwan Tsz Wing – Most Popular Member
After taking part in the programme, my knowledge in the operation of Legislative Council has been enriched.Thanks to RAAS for offering me such an invaluable opportunity to debate as a legislative councilor, which demands me to build my perception of current controversial issues. Also, it has ameliorated my debating skills and allows me to express my ideas in a more comprehensive way. Taking its variety and fruitfulness into account, I believe this is a paramount and remarkable experience in my entire secondary school life.
