The academy provides a varietiy of curriculums for older learners to enhance their qualities of life. This year, the oldest student is 85 years old. 73 year old Wong Tun Tat wanted to communicate with his grandchildren who live abroad.

just like my mother who is 75 years old, since she moved to canada since 1992, she has been going to school to learn english and computer, keep herself active, it is not only learn some new knowledge also good for health

Retiring people should always keep them active

anyway, respect older people and take care of them

one day we will be old too
