Whoosh! Time flies! A month has passed. Lots of sudden incidents happened last month, such as the severe typhoon ‘Mangkhut’ which attacked Hong Kong, and schools were suspended for two days after. This has never happened before. During the typhoon, some facilities and trees were destroyed and they have not yet been fixed. Fortunately, some trees collapsed and one of the trees fell down next to the school bus. Also, the display boards on each level were blown everywhere. We really have to show our gratitude to all the janitors for helping us to get everything back to normal and for giving us a safe environment to keep on with our studying and learning.
今年一如以往舉行科技嘉年華暨開放日，為加強與區內幼稚園的聯繫，今年於開放日舉行了「STEM UP在龍岡」親子填色比賽頒獎禮及「資訊站啟動禮暨ST “E”M親子比賽」，兩個比賽圓滿結束，參觀人數更打破了歷年來的記錄。衷心多謝主任們及老師們鼎力協助，令是次的活動如此成功。
As usual, ‘Scientific Carnival cum Open Day’ was held. This year, it was a bit different. On the first afternoon, ‘Prize Presentation of Colouring Competition’ was merged into our sharing session of our student presentation about their experiences during STEM activities. On the second afternoon, ‘Launching Ceremony of i-LTY info-station cum Parent-child ST“E”M competition was held . The number of participants broke the record. I really want to take this opportunity to thank our teachers who worked so hard to prepare these two days. It really worked. Well Done!
Enhancing students’ interest of learning English is one of the parents’ wishes. In this year, Drama-In-Education is going to be incorporated into our curriculum. A drama workshop will be conducted by the principal to all the teachers to let teachers know what Drama-In-Education is. Then drama conventions will be integrated into the selected story books in the co-planning meetings among teachers. Drama-In-Education can help students enhance their interests in both reading and learning English. Evaluation will be collected and analyzed, then the school will share this curriculum with the evaluation to the public in May, 2018 accompanied with the performance of Drama Festival and Choral Speaking. It will show all of you that we really want to establish our reputation in English teaching.
I believe that lots of parents and students have a huge expectation to know the result of the overseas excursion. Singapore got the highest score which got just a few more votes than Australia. The school is going to start the quotation and the relevant arrangements. We wish all the P.4 to P.6 students can join this overseas excursion to learn more English and broaden their horizons.
P.S.: There are two new videos uploaded to the school website. Try to find them and have a look. We really want to show all of you a BRAND NEW LTY and we are changing to be the best of the best.
