Rotary Club of Queensway and Boaz International Education cordially invites you to a Multi-Sensory Extravaganza – an innovative exhibition created by students with special talents this Sunday, 8 September 2013, at The Hong Kong Girl Guides Association, 3/F Multi-purpose Hall, 8 Gascoigne Road, Kowloon. On this special day, children with special needs and learning difficulties will demonstrate their special talents by using their novel, fresh, radical, new ideas and their technological know-how to transform an empty hall into a multi-sensory environment. We hope this unforgettable experience will help participants gain an appreciation of people with alternative learning methods and change societies’ perception of special needs.

Yours In Rotary,
