Sponsored and organised by HSBC Insurance in collaboration with HKGA, the five-day ‘HSBC Insurance Hour’ initiative drove into action at Yan Oi Tong Tin Ka Ping Primary School with more than 100 students who are new to the sport of golf. Ms Agnes Chan, Chief Customer Officer Hong Kong of HSBC Insurance and Mr Danny Lai, CEO of HKGA joined the students at the “HSBC Insurance Hour” launch to tee off the initiative with the “HSBC Golf for Schools Week”. Throughout the week, more than 1,000 students from 15 primary schools were given ShortGolf training – a new and unique ‘first touch’ training system which makes it fun and easy to teach and learn golf at school.
The HKGA Junior Squad members Isabella Leung, Michelle Cheung, Jonathan Lai and Arianna Lau also joined the launch event to pass on their learnings and experience to the participants. HSBC Golf For Schools initiative is currently active in 28 local primary schools.
