WHO WE ARE
We are students who attend JEMS Character Academy and we are in the Yellow Level. This year, we have been learning to grow in our empathy and compassion for people with hearing impairment in our community.
We hope you will enjoy our website, watch, learn and play games in our videos and grow in your compassion towards people who are deaf too!
The more we understand, the more we can be compassionate!

WHAT WE LEARNT
During the months from April to June, Yellow Level students have grown in their understanding and awareness of the needs and challenges that people with hearing impairment may face.
By empathising with how deaf people may feel, we have grown in their heart to be compassionate towards them in our community too.
Check out these videos for a sneak peak into how we have been learning about people with hearing impairment in class!

MEETING OUR GUEST SPEAKER
We had an amazing opportunity to interact with, play games and set their own questions to have an interview with Ms. Fanny Li, an educator with hearing impairment with years of experience in teaching young children who are both hearing and hearing impaired in schools.
From this memorable experience, we gained a deeper understanding of people with hearing impairment, their experiences and life goals, and thus deepen their empathy and grow in their compassion towards them in our community.
COMPASSION INTO ACTION:
LEARNING HONG KONG SIGN LANGUAGE
Learning sign language is one way to break the barrier to communicate with and to include those with hearing impairment more in our community.
To take a step into being compassionate, we enjoyed learning how to sign the alphabets, how to sign their name, and how to sign different animals in Hong Kong Sign Language.
Check out these fun videos to learn more about Hong Kong Sign Language from us!
COMPASSION IN ACTION: FUNDRAISING
HONG KONG ASSOCIATION OF THE DEAF
JEMS Character Academy has partnered with the charity - Hong Kong Association of the Deaf in previous years to teach children to have more empathy and compassion towards those with hearing impairment.
We hope that we can help fundraise money for this charity to help support those with hearing impairment. HKAD's mission is to provide comprehensive social welfare, medical and educational services to the deaf, hearing impaired, their families and other people with disabilities.
OUR FUNDRAISING GOAL:
We hope to raise $10,000 HKD for Hong Kong Association of the Deaf to help and support people who have hearing impairment in Hong Kong.
