S5 Students Learnt About Animal Conservation

As part of the Animal Conservation module, S.5 students joined activities that allow them to learn about the close bond between humans and animals and the work of a vet.

On 10 March and 12 March, three classes of S.5 students took part in a seminar conducted by Hong Kong Guide Dogs Association and Hong Kong Dog Rescue respectively. Buzzing with excitement, students were eager to ask questions regarding the training of guide dogs and the problem of dog abandonment in Hong Kong. Students were also delighted to see the interaction between the dogs and their owners / handlers. All students enjoyed a close encounter with humans’ best friends.

On 10 March, one class of S.5 students was blessed to have the opportunity to interview an alumnus veterinarian. The interview, conducted through video-conferencing software, allowed all students to learn about the daily work of a vet in the comfort of their home. It was an eye-opening experience for all and especially valuable for animal lovers and students aspiring to become a veterinarian.
 

English Speaking Wednesdays

Wednesdays in CDG are not only noisier, but also livelier and lovelier. The enthusiasm of English Speaking Wednesdays is by no means dampened under the pandemic. While everyone’s masks serve to contain the spread of Covid-19, they fail to arrest the contagion of students’ love for English. Refusing to settle for the scaling down of the activities, the English Ambassadors are always ready and proud to serve, to lead and to excel even in the new normal. At recesses every Wednesday, students swarm the corridors with utter eagerness not only to win the inter-house English Cup, but also seize the chance to interact with the English Ambassadors, who provide ample opportunities for their fellows to experience the joy of learning English outside classroom both face-to-face and online, sailing through the waves of pandemic with innovation and excellence.

First English Speaking Activity Day 2019-2020

This school year's first English Speaking Activity Day, which took place on November 6, 2019, started off with a boom, with a number of students participating in our tailor-made games in English. A total of 7 game booths were set up, welcoming all students to partake and sharpen their English skills.

This year’s theme was Myths and Legends. Nobody fully knows the truth behind the Pyramids, the Easter Island Moai or even the Stonehenge. The first ESAD’s activities brought our students through time and space to explore available facts about these artefacts and the mysteries behind them.

Students got to try various puzzles, dart games, matching clues and even testing their sense of touch by identifying objects purely with their hands. Students were able to enjoy all these activities in English while learning about what human minds and hands were capable of creating centuries ago, even before machines were invented.

At the end of the day, everyone had the opportunity to take something home, be it knowledge and experience or prizes for participating in the booths.

2019 S5 English Drama Competition

As a continuation of the English Drama Project S5 students completed last year, the students brought their scripts from page to stage for the Inter-class Drama Competition on 3rd October 2019. Representing their respective classes, all the competing groups brought utter jubilation to each and every one sitting in the Hall with their mesmerising performances. In the end, Class 5A took home the win while Class 5C managed to come second in the competition.

Maths Arena 2019

Maths Arena 2019 was successfully held on 3rd July 2019. A total of 13 teams from 7 primary schools in Tseung Kwan O actively participated in the competition. 

Our students designed 10 innovative mathematical tasks, which primary students had to complete within limited time, to cultivate and train their mathematical senses and abilities like spatial perception and speed-calculation. By holding Maths Arena 2019, we aimed at developing students’ interests in mathematics as well as providing them an opportunity to apply mathematical knowledge in real life. The event deepened their understanding on mathematics and they were all looking forward to the coming challenges. 

Congratulations to Po Leung Kuk Wong Wing Shu Primary School, Lok Sin Tong Lau Tak Primary School and Tseung Kwan O Government Primary School, which won the Champion, 1st Runner-up and 2nd Runner-up respectively in this competition. We also appreciate and express our gratitude to the efforts made by all participants.
