This spring, the campus is immersed in a sea of flowers as usual, but this year, it's also filled with poetry and music. With the theme of 'Those Unplanted Flowers', the one-month long I‧CARE Floral Festival was held again in March. Activities held included lectures, outings, a reading club, and film screening and sharing, to encourage students and staff to express themselves through music, poetry, words and images.

On 2 April, the festival held its finale party beside Lake Ad Excellentiam, which was decorated with sculptures and special lighting effects. Chessboards, Chinese tea and traditional Hakka snacks were prepared for the participants' enjoyment. On the lawn, students, alumni and teachers shared music and poetry.
