Our school has placed considerable emphasis on learning outside the classroom. We employ a ‘Language Follows the Teacher’ policy which requires our teachers to use either English or Putonghu to communicate with our students. Every year, our teachers design theme-based language-rich activities for students to learn in a fun way. Activities include booth games, a Chat Corner and a Bilingual Tuck Shop which are hosted by our ‘Language Leaders. Moreover, there is an English Activity Day and a Chinese Cultural Day each year to provide fun ways for students to learn the two languages.
We employ one extra Native English-speaking teacher besides the full-time NET provided by the EDB in order to provide our students with maximum opportunities to communicate in English in their daily life. The NETs help in classroom teaching and other English activities. For Chinese learning, Putonghua has been adopted as the medium of instruction in all classes from P.1 to P.6.
The school TV channel, ‘EP Channel’ (E=English, P=Putonghua), funded by ‘Quality Education Fund’ has been established to boost students’ bilingual ability through the mass media. There are various TV programmes in English and Putonghua which are broadcasted throughout the year.
