Professional Supports
  • World Voice (2015-2016)

The programme was organized by British Council HK. Our teachers received training from Mr Richard Frostick, the Artistic Director of World Voice through a series of workshops, lesson observations and evaluations. In this programme, P1 students learned English through singing songs tailor-made by their teachers. Students and teachers both enjoyed the lessons and there was lots of fun!

 

  • STAR Programme by Education Bureau (2015-2017)

“STAR” is an online assessment repository designed by EDB. It helps teachers assess students’ performance through a computer system by generating instant assessment reports for teachers as reference. 
Our school joined the programme in 2016 as a partner school. Teachers in P3 level attended workshops and integrated the assessments into the curriculum by using them as pre-tests and post-tests. The next year our school became a network school. Teachers made use of the e-resources for both KSI and KSII to enhance the teaching and learning.

 

  • Quality Education Fund Thematic Network (QTN) on English Language (Primary) organized by CUHK (2016-2017)

P5 level joined the Quality Education Fund Thematic Network (QTN) on English Language of CUHK. Co-ordinators from CUHK and a partner school conducted co-planning meeting with the P5 teachers. They have given us advice on how to develop interesting and meaningful e-learning tasks for our students. Meanwhile P4 level developed a school-based e-learning curriculum. P4 students experienced a series of school-orientation hunting activities using ipads. The teaching and learning resources developed by both core and partner schools in the project are shared among one another other.

 

 

Reading Workshops

Students learn English not only for textbook. Interesting readers including fictions and non-fictions have been selected by our teachers and used as teaching materials in reading workshops. Local teachers and our NETs co-teach in the classroom. Various activities have been designed and carried our in the lessons. We hope students can learn English in an enjoyable way.
