Let's continue our virtual tour, as the Development Office now guides you to the "Leung Fung Yee Building" (High Block of Chung Chi Student Development Complex)!
Designed as a multi-functional tower, the "Leung Fung Yee Building" features not only facilities for our students, but also residence spaces for visiting scholars and college staff. Complementing with the "Kunkle Student Centre", there will be ample space in the twin towers that helps cultivating the all-round development of Chung Chi students.
🔶 Fook Wo and Laura Jee Li Theatre [to promote students' comprehensive development through performing arts]:
Incorporating architectural ideas of a black box theatre, the 3,000 sq.ft. "Fook Wo and Laura Jee Li Theatre" houses about 100 guests. Students can practice, rehearse, and enjoy performances of music, dance, drama in the Theatre. The Theatre also serves as a terrific place for students to polish their performance techniques and skills in collaboration, communication and event planning. At the same time, we hope students will observe, perceive and consequently develop an aesthetic experience in Art from their encounters at the Theatre.
🔶 Gym and Yoga Room [to stimulate students' physical and mental wellness]:
The other wing of Leung Fung Yee Building is the "Gym and Yoga Room". The two-storey facility occupies approximately 2,800 sq. ft. with (1) a gymnasium and (2) a spacious and relaxing area for mindfulness, yoga and stretching exercises. The gymnasium is the first-ever such facility opened for students of Chung Chi College. The Gym and Yoga Room provides comfy spaces for students to relax from their packed schedule and hectic class works.
🔶 Staff Quarters and Guesthouses:
To facilitate and encourage teachers to interact with our students in after-class and weekend activities, Leung Fung Yee Building is equipped with several staff quarters. On the other hand, studio suites are available for our visiting scholars, artists and distinguished alumni during their stays.
