Building strong foundation in Chinese Language and Appreciation of Chinese Culture
Cultivating in students a love for Chinese Language and learn to appreciate Chinese Culture
The Chinese Language Department aims to build a strong foundation in the use of Chinese Language in our students especially in their speaking and listening skills. Differentiated programmes are put in place in to develop our students with different learning abilities.
For our higher progress students, we have Junior Reporters Programme for P4 and P5 as well as Speech and Drama for P3.
For the lower progress students, we have developed the Chinese Conversational Programme (CCP) for our P2 non-ethnic Chinese students. We also have enrichment on Critical-Thinking and Mind-Mapping Skills in Essay-Writing to enhance students’ writing skills for all P5 and P6 Students.
During our MTL Fortnight and P4 Chinese Culture and Language Camp held yearly, we introduced students to Chinese Traditional Culture such as Chinese traditional handicrafts ie. Kite-Making, Chinese Paper-Cutting, Chinese Painting, Chinese Calligraphy etc. We also organized learning journeys to theatre performances for P3 and P4 students as well as Tea-Chapter for Tea Appreciation for P5 students.
The Chinese Language Department believes that our students will only learn and acquire the language well if they can see the purpose and meaning in learning the language and therefore, infusing Chinese Culture into Chinese Language learning becomes our main objective.
