The University of Macau (UM) Centre for Chinese History and Culture recently launched a course in Chinese history and culture for secondary school students. Students in the course not only learned more about the histories of China and Macao, but also had the opportunity to exchange ideas with UM faculty members and students and experienced college life. Part of the general education programme for high school students in Macao and taught by Prof Li Ping from the Department of History, the course attracted students from Macau Pooi To Middle School and Sao Jose Diocesan College, Fifth School (English section) as well as UM students.
