On February 11, the whole school took part in English Day. It was a very cold day but brave English speakers shared their thoughts on the theme of ‘Teens and Technology’ in assembly sharing and lined up to talk to teachers in English at recess, lunch time and after school. Throughout the day, students participated in activities to collect precious stamps on their cards to trade for treats later on in the day. In assemblies, the junior forms had a drama and a quiz to entertain them and the senior classes watched ‘The Social Network’ about the founding of Facebook to support the theme of the English Day. Many thanks to all the English teachers, English ambassadors and student helpers who volunteered to make this day successful.
To promote extensive reading, the English Department organized a cross-curriculum activity - Library Visit for Form 1 students with the Chinese Department from 18 March to 26 March, 2014. Our students were first introduced to the new library search engine and then toured around the Central Library in Causeway Bay. Students were impressed by the large collection of books in the Central Library. Many students borrowed books during the visit and would love to visit and borrow books from the Central Library as well as other libraries in their spare time.
