Class Roles –  Students’ Sharing

CHAN Jui-Jung (G4A)

This year, we have been introduced to class leaders. Everybody can volunteer to be a class leader. A class leader assists the teacher and helps the class to improve. In my class, there are 7 class leaders each term. Their names, roles and job descriptions are displayed at the back of the classroom. In term one, I was the English Resource Manager. I was in charge of checking if everyone handed in their homework on time. I also helped my English teacher, Ms. Nie, hand out and collect resources. I am very proud to be a class leader in Term One. I feel contented to have contributed in helping my teacher and my classmates.”

Multimedia Training in ICT

Students in Grades 2 through 6 have started a range of lessons centered around multimedia.  This includes developing an understanding of the principles behind disciplines like video, audio stories, and digital books and using productivity tools to develop online newspapers and articles. Some of the skills they develop are photography, basic sound engineering, script writing and storyboard writing as well as how to structure an interview. This is a wonderful opportunity or our primary learners to showcase their creativity.
