Introduction of Secondary Schools Activities

To participate in the "Joyful Fruit Month" – School Fruit Promotion Project

School would form a teacher-led working committee to implement one or more school-based fruit promotion activities between November 2022 to May 2023 with the aim to increase fruit intake of students and teachers. The activities may take place in whatever nature and format so long as they are deemed suitable within the school setting. Examples of these activities include campus fruit party (teachers and students eat fruit together during recess or lunch time), poster design, slogan design, cheerleading slogan competitions, design of publicity materials, promotion of dishes with fruit in Home Economics lessons, project for Liberal Study, or even fruit-selling activities in schools or at the Lunar New Year Fair. The Joyful Fruit Month Secretariat (Secretariat) will contact the working committee of schools to provide appropriate coaching and support as necessary.

Participating schools can organise fruit promotion activities recommended by the DH and request the relevant materials these activities. Participating schools can
