 Since 2005, our school has been organizing the annual Youth Leadership Programme (YLP), which is a public speaking training programme under Toastmasters International. Participants can learn effective public speaking skills, enjoy plenty of opportunities to deliver prepared or impromptu speeches, and can be mentored by experienced Toastmasters. The final contest is usually the highlight of the programme in which contestants showcase their leadership skill as well as their confidence in speaking English.   After the internal YLP contest, we co-organize the Inter-Gavel Club Public Speaking Contest with Toastmasters International every year. Students from different schools participate in the contest. The performances of the contestants are amazing and competition is always keen. It has been such a rewarding event, celebrating the achievement of the young speakers.

Drama Education Drama training programme is a regular enrichment programme for our students every year and has proven a great success in nurturing students’ language ability as well as confidence and creativity. For the past few years, we have joined ‘The School Arts Animateur Scheme’ organized by Leisure and Cultural Services Department and have collaborated with different professional performing groups, providing whole-year training course at school. Our yearly drama or musical performance has also become one of the big events on the school calendar.

In the past few years, we were one of the Seed Project schools implementing the Extending English Learning Project, in which different subject departments worked with the English Department to prepare students for using English as their medium of instruction in their classroom teaching. Currently, we are participating in the Seed Project – Multi-media Tasking for Junior Secondary English Classroom’. Through co-planning, lesson observation and professional dialogues supported by the EDB project officers, teachers developed their capacity in sustaining effective language teaching and learning.   School-based English Curriculum Apart from the core English curriculum, Media English and English Literature have been introduced as two school-based subjects in junior forms. Such innovation facilitates students to examine different forms of media in order to gain a wider awareness of the application of English in daily lives, and allows students to understand, enjoy and appreciate literacy work in English through extensive reading of different genres of texts.
