Launch of SCI Prevention Education Programme

Hong Kong Spinal Cord Injury Fund last year invited a team of health professionals and educators to editing a teaching kit on the prevention of spinal cord injury. This teaching kit can help primary school physical education teachers and sports coaches to implement spinal health education for primary school students. It is expected to raise the awareness of preventing sports injuries among teachers and students to reduce cases of spinal cord injury or other injuries. The SCI Education Prevention Kit was completed and printed in May 2018. On the afternoon of July 5th, a workshop was held at St. Patrick's School.  Invitation letters were sent to all primary schools in Hong Kong.  It turned out that more than 50 primary schools responded by signing up. The response was very warm and encouraging.
