Reading to Learn

Reading habit is an essential components in both language learning and life-long learning. In order to help our students to form their reading habit, Reading to Learn lesson has been put into the regular time-table since 2012. In the Reading to Learn lessons, students are encouraged to select books they enjoy reading and set goals before they embark on their reading journey. Inspiring interaction between teachers and students through book sharing not only adds pleasure to reading, but also motivates students to read for both intellectual and spiritual nourishment. To create a stronger reading atmosphere, Extensive Reading Scheme, Holiday Reading Scheme and book sharing sessions are incorporated into the curriculum.
