Talk by Ms Kwong Ho-ka Annie
Ms Kwong Ho-ka Annie, our English and English Literature teacher, was invited to share in the morning assembly on 27 March. Ms Kwong focused on students’ learning and encouraged them to think more through reflections and questioning in order to explore the potential of the brain. She also encouraged students to step out of their comfort zone as the school always provides a safety net for them to learn through making mistakes. At the end, Ms Kwong invited two junior form students to share their learning experiences through public speaking and note-taking. In the Principal’s remarks, Mr. Kwan encouraged students to be courageous to grab every opportunity to explore their potentials and to shine.
