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, our English Department has worked in collaboration with the Education University of Hong Kong to produce the first vocabulary learning booklet and the eBook of the series to support students with different needs and styles to build a solid foundation for learning the language.
The official Book Launch for the A Word A Day English Vocabulary Booklet was held successfully on 15 December 2021. We were delighted to see different stakeholders such as English Panel Heads and Teachers, Education Psychologists, SENCOs and Speech Therapists in the event.
A class of students with a shaky foundation in English was invited to attend the reinforcement course. Pre-tests and Post-tests were conducted and we discovered that less able students have improved their abilities in terms of ‘Semantics’, ‘Phonetics’, ‘Spelling’ and ‘Writing’ by 15%, 13% 49% & 31% respectively. The results have shown that students have had significant improvement in English Language after using the A Word A Day English Vocabulary Booklet.
Our School would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Ho Fuk Chuen of ( Chief Consultant of QTN Project), Ms. Lee Suk Han (Education Psychologist; Project Consultant) for their support to our English Team in catering to learner differences.
As a community school, we will continue to produce and publish a series of English Learning materials of local context as a solution to cater for learner diversity and share the. resources with local primary schools in the near future.

本校邀請了一班英語能力稍遜的同學在上學期試讀了相關課程，經過前測和後測比較後，發現同學在“語義”、“語音”、“串字” 和 “作句”方面的能力分別提高了 15%、13%、49% 和 31%。結果顯示，同學使用 A Word A Day 英語一日一詞學習手冊後英語能力有顯著的提升。
