Hong Kong students had a special summer vacation in April. Our school suspended classes, but our students did not stop learning. On April 30, Principal Ms. Cheung led our school's reading ambassadors to exchange ideas with New Taipei Municipal DanFeng High School, New Taipei Municipal Zhuwei High School and Elegantia College. An online deep reading event was held. The goal of the activity is to deepen the interpretation of texts through reading and discussion, and to arouse students' interest in studying literary works.
The activity uses modern poetry as the discussion text, so that students can participate actively as poetry can easily trigger students' emotions. During the activity, students conducted group discussions, which stimulated their thinking. They were supported and complemented by their peers.
This exchange allowed students from both places to demonstrate their extraordinary language learning ability. Teachers encouraged students to ask questions and enthusiastically share their feelings about reading poetry. It was a profound and valuable exchange.
We’re glad to have invited staff from Hong Kong University’s Admission Team to share with our students their admission requirements and arrangements. Students are encouraged to excel in the subjects that weigh a large percentage in the admission. Some HKU students also take this opportunity to share their learning experience in HKU programmes, Business, Engineering and Architecture. Students can get more information about different disciplines and start planning for their future studies.
To inspire senior form students to plan for their future, F5 Prospects Talk is arranged. In the talk, they can gain a better understanding of various paths after DSE exam. Besides the traditional way to get to university through JUPAS, they are given some information about further studies in other tertiary institutions and overseas countries.
