INTERNATIONAL CULTURE WEEK (19TH APRIL – 23RD APRIL, 2021)

Hola, ¿cómo estás? (Hello, how are you?) 

Have you ever thought that you can enjoy authentic Spanish food and experience the sensation of flamenco at school during the pandemic? Have you ever learnt the culture and language of the Spanish through mini-games? Our students were able to taste the essence of the Spanish culture during the International Culture Week held by the English Department in April.  

International Culture Week – Spanish Culture was successfully held in the period of 19 April – 23 April 2021. Students had the opportunity to explore the rich and vibrant culture of Spain through book exhibitions, mini-game booths, a costume-design competition and a flamenco dance. Let’s see some of the highlights of it. 

Speech Festival

By encouraging students to take part in Speech Festival, we hope to boost their confidence in their English speaking ability and also engender a sense of pride. There were altogether 39 participants involved in a variety of events in 2021 academic year, namely solo prose reading and dramatic duologue. Most of them got the Certificate of Merit. In the competition for Solo Prose Reading, 2 Hope Wong King Lok and 4 Faith Chan Tze Yeung got the first place; 2 Faith Cheung Tsz Wai Kinson, 4 Love Chong Hong Chi, 4 Honesty Wong I Shun Eliah and 6 Faith Khera Karishma got the first runner-up; and 3 Honesty Wong Hoi Ching and 4 Honesty Lau Ka Yu got the second runner-up. Students’ experience was greatly enriched as they got to compete with counterparts of all abilities from different schools.

Australia Study Tour

Australia Study Tour allows students to experience different learning styles and western cultures. It gives a chance to the students to see Australia in a different way which can help widen their horizons. Staying with a host family and attending school together with the local students enable them to mingle with the local people and speak English in an authentic English environment.

English Sailing Day

With the help of Hebe Haven Yacht Club, we have been providing students with an opportunity to learn and experience the fun of sailing.
