Lessons in life from a legendary teacher

Hong Kong, 7 June 2022: Inspirational teacher and charity worker Nicole Sicard recounted her remarkable life story in a lunchtime talk at the Helena May in Central attended by five of BC&C’s lawyers.

During a fireside chat with our Partner Usha Casewell, Miss Sicard described how she arrived in Hong Kong almost 60 years ago from France to teach science in local schools. She founded various community projects, including having her students accompany visually impaired and disabled children, visit isolated elderly people, and provide evening classes for illiterate workers. After her retirement, she launched her own organisation, Mayaa Nepal, which aims to educate the poorest children in the Kathmandu Valley.

“It was a fascinating discussion with a truly exceptional lady who has transformed so many people’s lives through her courage, kindness and commitment. We were honoured to meet Nicole and learn more about her passion for teaching and desire to help the poor and disadvantaged,” says Usha, Head of BC&C’s Matrimonial Team and the Helena May’s Chair of Council. The talk was also attended by our lawyers Alice Cabrelli, Allison Lee, Kristie Wong and Claire Chow.

Miss Sicard has been awarded the Order of the Knight of the Legion of Honour by the Consul General of France and recognised by “Les Trophees des Francais de L’etranger” – the French Abroad Awards – which celebrate outstanding achievements by French expatriates.

The Helena May, a club for women which also welcomes male associate members, was established in 1916 by Lady Helena May, the wife of then Governor Sir Henry May, to promote the welfare of women and girls in Hong Kong.
