Activities Highlight

English Speaking Day – Monday to Thursday every week

On English Speaking Day, different departments will organize fun-filled language activities for students to practice their English.  Students can immerse themselves in a rich English-speaking environment.

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 93 participants involved in a variety of events this year, namely dramatic duologue, solo prose reading and choral speaking.  Students’ experience was greatly enriched as they got to compete with counterparts of all abilities from different schools.  Thirty-eight merits, two first runners-up and one second runners-up were attained.

HKU Visit

‘Hong Kong University Visit’ is an exposure for Form 3 students to enhance their English proficiency.  English lessons and a tour in the school campus are arranged to boost students’ confidence in speaking and let them have a glimpse at university life.

Joint School Oral Practice

With the aim of providing a chance for our Form 5 and Form 6 students to apply the speaking skills they have learnt for tackling DSE Paper 4 in a more genuine setting, we conducted Joint School Oral Practice with our neighboring schools on 26th November, 2016 and on 16th May, 2017.  The two practices were successfully held and our students gained valuable experiences which could help improve their group discussion skills.

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.  While learning the skills required to sail a boat on their own, students is also given a chance to use English in an authentic context, communicating with native English-speaker instructors.

The Speaker

Natalie Leung Hiu Yau (3 Love), Xavier Li Chung Hei (3 Honesty) and Lushita Chan Jo Miu (5 Hope) joined The Speaker run by RTHK in October last year. It’s a great experience for them. They wrote a script to share their experience in learning English. To all of them, it’s the first time ever they got their presentation videotaped by a radio station. Surely they’ve learnt a lot!

Visit to STCC by Broughton Anglican College

Our sister school Broughton Anglican College from Campbelltown in Sydney visited our school in April this year. A group of 20 students toured around the campus together with 5 of their teachers. Our students served as their buddies and interacted with them throughout the whole activity. They learnt Chinese calligraphy, made snow skin mooncakes and lunched at a local Chinese restaurant. It is such a precious experience to our students who could get to know a different culture more and use English in an authentic environment.
