Project Highlights

To enhance the mental wellbeing of students through group-base student-initiated projects, a PolyU Wellness Fund was set up by SAO. We are honoured to have teams of student organisers conducting such innovative and wonderful workshops/activities for all PolyU students in the past few months. Let’s share the happy moments together.

Group One: Embrace Your Emotions
