Over 350 secondary students from eight schools took part in the Correctional Services Department’s Creation & Rehabilitation drama and music performance at Stanley Prison today.
After more than three months of preparation, 22 people in custody performed their self-created drama. Another group of people in custody put on a concert.
Forty-year-old "Ah-Lun" shared his story with students in a question and answer session.
Teachers and students who participated in the event were touched by his words.
Carmel Holy Word Secondary School student Danny Chan said: "The story of the person in custody impressed me. I can see his regret. He regrets what he has done. This teaches me to behave well, otherwise I will also regret."
His teacher Agnes Hung said: "After watching this show I felt really impressed. I thought they have really gone through changes here. They really want to get a new life.
"If they really can go out into society again, I think they will be good and they can change themselves. I wish for them that they can enjoy their lives with their families."
