The JCCAC fits in our required district as it's nearby our school. Moreover, it is not known by some people so this is the best way for students to learn some history of Hong Kong about cottages.
We learned some new skills during this project such as finding out the information about the Hong Kong history in fifties and sixties, how to solving the problems and to be a responsible student. We improve our problem-solving skills as when we got into trouble, we may be claim. Doing everything we have to responsibility.
The group concepts we are to practice is that we need to have more communication to the others while we were doing the project.
