Many schools in Hong Kong start the new term next week and it brings back so many memories for me of how it felt preparing to start a new school year, especially making the move into a new school. Excitement and nerves are all part of the package but my favourite part was always the…

Alexandra: I can't quite believe how quickly time is flying by... many students in Hong Kong start their new school year next week and families are returning from their holidays and finding out about new teachers, timetables and activities.
My own children have all grown taller so new shoes, uniforms etc. are required. My practical tip is to name everything your child takes to school, it's worth the effort! Sew-on name tapes are fabulous, a black sharpie works well…

“Well, maybe it started that way. As a dream, but doesn’t everything? Those buildings. These lights. This whole city. Somebody had to dream about it first. And maybe that is what I did. I dreamed about coming here, but then I did it.”

SUMMER WORKSHOP SPOTLIGHT

Rhyme and Reason

Do all poems have to rhyme? Can a poem be a
square? What is a poem for? Join us on a journey
of discovery as we look at limericks, haikus and
sonnets from across the ages and work out what
poetry really is. Building on our exploration of this
form, we then create our own original poem and
master a performance by the end of the workshop.

Learning Outcomes: poetic technique, analytical
skills,…

Shaking up Shakespeare!

Putting new twists on Shakespearean classics,

Hamlet living on The Peak? Prospero on Lamma?
It’s all possible!

Learning Outcomes: analytical skills, literary
technique, vocabulary development,…

Monday morning inspiration!

“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

—The Twits by Roald Dahl
