Students of Shantou University Successfully Complete the Marine Canoeing Public-benefit Program
After 8-day and 640-kilometer marine relay canoeing, the canoeing team of Shantou University composed of 41 people finally overcame the challenges, successfully complete the marine canoeing public-benefit program, and landed in the wharf of Harbour Grand Kowloon, Hong Kong at noon of February 19. They were greeted by Mr. Li Ka-shing, addressed respectfully as "Brother Shing" by the teachers and students of Shantou University, Chairman of Li Ka-shing Foundation and Honorary Chairman of Shantou University Council, in addition to many foreign and Chinese media which came after hearing the news.
2017 Marine Canoeing Program is another bold trial for Shantou University to implement and practice Mr. Li Ka-shing's idea of "Whole-person Education". From start to implementation, the Program cannot do without the full support of Mr. Li Ka-shing.
