The English Team of our school has collaborated with the Department of Special Education and Counseling, The Education University of Hong Kong. We jointly published the "A Word A Day English Vocabulary Booklet". It is dedicated to supporting junior secondary and senior primary students with diverse learning needs.
In the past five weeks, a Face-to-Face Book Launch and a live Zoom Online Sharing Session were successfully held. Our Honourable Guest Speakers included Dr. Ho Fuk-chuen, Adjunct Professor of the Department of Special Education and Counselling, The Education University of Hong Kong, Ms. Li Suk-han, former Emeritus Educational Psychologist of the Education Bureau, and stakeholders from more than 120 secondary and primary schools in Hong Kong, including Principals, Vice-Principals, Educational Psychologists, English Panel Heads, Special Educational Needs Coordinators, and Speech Therapists.
Salesians of Don Bosco Ng Siu Mui Secondary School strives to become a Community School. As the Core School of the Quality Education Fund Thematic Network (QTN) Project: Web-based Learning for Students with Diverse Needs (Reading & Writing) at the Junior Secondary Level, it is to our delight that our ‘A Word A Day English Vocabulary Booklet’ can benefit students with diverse learning needs in Hong Kong. We hope to share our teaching resources to local secondary and primary schools.
The English Team of our school will continue to publish a series of English learning materials of local context to cater for learner differences. We look forward to sharing the teaching resources with different stakeholders again in the near future.
