To enhance the understanding of organ donation amongst students, 6 secondary schools co-organized a Joint School Liberal Studies Discussion Session in Apr 2018 to discuss if an opt-out system should be adopted in Hong Kong as an effective means to achieve a higher organ donation rate. Mr. Derek Tse, the Honorary Treasurer of HKOTF, represented HKOTF as a member of the judging panel to select the winner amongst 6 schools, including SKH Tsang Shiu Tim Secondary School, Christian Alliance S C Chan Memorial College, Valtorta College, Workers’ Children Secondary School (currently Scientia Secondary School), HKSYC & IA Wong Tai Shan Memorial College, and Sha Tin Methodist College.

The teams coming from 6 secondary schools discussed the pros and cons of adopting an opt-out organ donation system in Hong Kong. The discussion on stage inspired the other attendees to learn more about organ donation.

Mr. Derek Tse, the Honorary Treasurer of HKOTF, along with other members of the judging panel listened to the viewpoints of the different teams.
