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 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 can also have access to WiseNews on the school campus and learn more about the current social issues.

Library Reading Session

The library reading session will be held once a cycle. Students will conduct an in-depth discussion based on the articles and materials designed by the school library. This helps to stimulate students’ interest in reading.

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.
