KEY PROGRAMMES & LEARNING EXPERIENCES
Mother Tongue Fortnight (MTF) & Chinese Language Camp
With the objective of ‘Active Learners, Proficient Users’ in mind, the Chinese Department create more opportunities for students to be exposed to Chinese culture and values, and also to enhance their learning of the Chinese Language (CL).
During the MT Fortnight & Language Camp, the activities are multi-disciplinary integrating subjects such as English, Physical Education, Art, Music, Drama, and Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) . The learning of CL is thus made more fun, engaging and effective through multi-disciplinary settings. These activities arouse students’ interest in learning Chinese culture and better equip them with the varied use of the language in different contexts. Students learn to be more confident, adaptable, innovative, and resilient.
为了贯彻执行教育部所推行的“母语双周”计划，今年育民小学在第一学段就结合华人农历新年 ( 第一周 ) ，为一年级至六年级的华族学生举办了一系列丰富多彩的母语双周活动。农历新年期间，小一至小三的学生尝试制作华族传统食品汤圆，小四至小六的学生则尝试包饺子的活动。除了华族学生之外，异族同胞也和我们一起庆祝农历新年，感受新年气氛。
School-based Curriculum – Di Zi Gui ( 弟子规 )
Di Zi Gui is an effective approach in cultivating kids’ moral education, it sets the standards for being a good student and child. Chinese Department aims to nurture students with strong values as well as 21st Century competencies at the younger stage. This programme also helps students to understand moral character traits like “Filial Piety”, “Trust”, “Love” and “Kindness”.
