Reading Schemes

Content

Joy of Reading Scheme

The Joy of Reading Scheme aims to encourage students to develop a practice of a substantial reading habit. Students will be awarded a reading merit by completing a book report, selecting and writing down memorable quotes, designing a book cover, drawing the characters of the story or finishing a parent-child reading report. Students can get the awards both during and after the completion of the reading scheme. Parents involvement is always welcomed and encouraged.

Subject-based Reading Scheme

We integrate students’ reading experience into the subject teaching curriculum. Different subjects provide different types of reading activities, such as model making, oral presentations, writing book reports and quiz assessments. The participating subjects include Chinese, English, Mathematics, Liberal Studies, Integrated Science, Computer Studies, Chinese History, History, Geography, Home Economics, Design and Technology, Physical Education, Business Accounting, Economics and Visual Arts.

Good Book Recommendation in morning assembly

Good book recommendation sessions will be held during morning assemblies. Subject teachers, students and librarians will be responsible for sharing good books. The books they share are not limited to one or two languages or genres.

Newspaper Reading Scheme

Our school library provides a Chinese newspaper subscription for the whole year. Students are required to subscribe to the newspaper for the L.S. reading session in designated weeks. In addition, there will be a newspaper reading period every week to encourage students to learn more about the current social issues.

L.S. Reading Session

The L.S. reading session will be held every Friday. Students will conduct an in-depth group discussion based on the current social issues and some liberal studies learning materials. This helps students prepare better for their DSE public examinations.

School Book Fairs

Two book fairs are held every year. The fairs help promote a reading atmosphere and motivate students to read more at school. Students can take this opportunity to purchase the books they like.
