2018 World Book Day Fest - Towards a Reading City

Our school was honored to be invited to hold a reading game booth at SKH St Mary's Church Mok Hing Yiu College in Sham Shui Po District last Saturday (21/4). The 2018 World Book Day Fest is co-organised by the Standing Committee on Language Education and Research (SCOLAR) and the Education Bureau(EDB) aiming at fostering a sustainable atmosphere and culture of reading across the city by building on the strengths in the promotion of reading across the curriculum and capitalising on the synergy of schools, parents and community partners.

Our school librarians were in charge of the game booth. We sincerely selected Around the World in 80 Days as a recommendation for the Primary students there. With the theme of "Appreciation and Respect", we had interactive and meaningful Chinese language activities in coordinating with the content of the book we chose. Our students shared some interesting customs of various countries and led the junior form students to play the games. Everyone had a joyful experience in reading.
