The Third English Speaking Activity Day: Brainwave
Our teachers and students have turned their brainwaves into a brilliant English Speaking Activity Day! Held on 15 May 2017, the Third English Speaking Activity Day was themed “Brainwave”, which means “a sudden clever idea”. This time, the English Language Department and the English Ambassador Team worked with three co-organisers, namely the Physics Department, the ICT Department and the Health in Mind Club, to offer various enthralling and inspiring booth games related to both English and the respective disciplines. For afterschool activities, the use of iPads was first introduced in the “Treasure Hunt”, in which students scanned QR codes around the school with the gadgets in order to answer some challenging questions about mental health. S.3 students strove to take the championship in the “Solar Cooking Competition” by giving presentations on self-made solar cooking devices. All participants enjoyed this event and seized the opportunity to polish their English speaking skills and apply the knowledge learnt in Physics.
