About Oi Kwan College
BOKSS College was established in 2009 and our elderly services have joined the U3A Network of Hong Kong administered by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service and funded by HK Electric Centenary Trust. BOKSS College offers a development platform that explores the potentials in the retired and elderly and encourages them to become tutors and mentors.
Adhering to the innovative learning mission of “self-initiating”, “self-learning”, “self-teaching” and “self-managing”, BOKSS College facilitates the Third Age Citizens to pursue continuous learning in developing their strengths and exploring their potentials in order to enjoy their golden years with a never-ending learning attitude
BOKSS College aims to inspire persons who aged 50 or above through self-learning and teaching to develop their potentials and realise their dreams. BOKSS College acts as an online campus while members can learn and teach through internet. At college, the elderly can bring out their full potentials, enhance self-image and devote their professional knowledge and experience to the betterment of individuals and society.
