Feedbacks show that Primary school students usually have difficulties in reading comprehension, oral speaking and writing tasks. It is due to the fact that Hong Kong students generally are not getting enough exposure to English apart from their English lessons and tutorials.
The English Reading, Speaking and Writing Programme aims at cementing students’ English fundamentals and equipping them with the necessary skill-sets and familiarity of the Hong Kong Primary School English curriculum.
As innovation and technology are being increasingly recognized as the locomotive to drive sustainable development and solve complex global challenges,
Mathematics is vital in everyday life. Mathematics pervades all aspects of life. It is not possible to live in the modern world without making some use of mathematics.

Mathematics is present in our daily lives.
In Hong Kong, we are failing to nurture an interest in STEAM in our young children. Without that, the young won’t be motivated to learn math, science or technology.
We should take this opportunity to promote STEAM education to genuinely improve our education system that allows future generations to thrive with their interests and creativity.
Without a language-rich environment at home, non-chinese-speaking children find it hard to pick up Chinese until they receive formal schooling. If they enroll in mainstream schools, they can master the spoken form of Chinese (Cantonese) without much difficulty, being surrounded by peers who speak it. However, their Chinese reading and writing skills remain poor, due to the nature of Chinese acquisition, during which one has to master not only the confusing characters, but very complex sentence patterns.
The homework guidance programme aims at improving students’ efficiency and motivation in doing homework. We teach students how to create a homework and study plan. Students should also learn how to create an effective homework schedule, so their extracurricular and rest time won’t be deprived. We emphasize on tackling the hardest assignments first. We know that it’s tempting to start with the easy stuff to get it out of the way. But students generally have the most energy and focus when they begin. They should use this mental power on the subjects that are the most challenging. Later, when they are more tired, they can focus on the simpler things.
The programme aims to create a platform where children can learn and develop their English writing skills enthusiastically. This programme will enhance children’s writing skills by building their confidence, gaining motivation and arousing their imagination.
At the end of the course, a custom-made coloured story booklet will be awarded to each student with audio and video uploaded.
