Activity Review and Letter Sharing of Jockey Club Vocational and Education Resources Centre Open Day - Memory Store
Jockey Club Vocational and Educational Resources Centre Open Day - Memory Store was held on the 3rd and 4th December 2022 as one of the key activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Centre. There were guests, users, as well as the public coming together to witness the development of the centre in the past 50 years. It was hilarious that we had more than 500 participants in total. The highlights include the display of photos, memorable items and letters from our users, demonstrating the 50-years development of the centre. Besides, there were booths for coffee making and balloon twisting ran by our talented members. In addition, there were a claw game machine to allow the participants to enjoy and share the happiness with us.

The Student Centre was established in 1972 and it makes efforts to address the needs of visually impaired students and young people in the aspects of education and vocation. As time flies, it comes to the 50-aniversary of the Centre, currently named as the Jockey Club Educational and Vocational Resources Centre. Apart from reviewing our past journey, we are looking forward to surmounting all obstacles together, fighting for equal opportunity in education and vocation for visually impaired people, creating an inclusive and harmonious society.
