CCN has been developed to emphasise personal contact and rapport between lecturers and students, to create a family-like environment, and to maintain a caring culture so as to ensure students’ personal growth. The CCN Day Carnival, held twice a year, brings the entire polytechnic together in the spirit of caring and sharing. Staff and students collaborate to set up stalls to raise funds for TP’s students in need of financial aid.
