MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL

Dear Parents,

It is the time of year again that we proudly present our chosen collection of our students’ writings. It is the annual celebration of a year of hard work, creativity, drive and excellence.

In our lessons ‘Under the Sea’, children had to imagine they were called to protect their habitat the Great Barrier Reef from illegal fishermen, and so they did, splendidly with valor, wits and tactics that only children can imagine. The section ‘Show not Tell’ under Animal Tales is an exemplar of what we try to achieve in all our lessons in encouraging students to describe with vivid details rather than simply stating the facts. The setting in ‘Noises in the Dark’ is splendidly crafted in describing the raging storm and allowing the plot to unfold nicely. Equally, the few contributions under ‘Frankenstein’ clearly demonstrate that our students are able to put themselves in the shoes of the hideous and lonely creature and write affectingly from his perspective. Not to be outdone, the formal essays from our secondary students covering Japan’s culture to Olympic Games Torch Relay show a sophisticated level of writing.

We are delighted that one of our long-standing students, Nicola Yu, of Mid-Levels Centre, won last summer’s Hong Kong-wide Kids4Kids Writing Competition. We have included in this issue all our five entries for the competition: Merlin and Ben’s Island (Nicola Yu, P5), Gingy and her Amazing Cup Cake Fairies (Dorothy Ma, P5), How to Defeat a Tree Monster (Irene Wong, P6), The World above the Sea (Marco Wong, P6) and Donut and the Robot Cat (Adrian Choi, P5) for your enjoyment.

As we enter into the fifth year of our operation in Shanghai, we see more contributions from our Shanghai students and we would like to congratulate them all for their diligence and pride they take in their work.

With the exam season just around the corner, we would like to take this opportunity to remind parents that we are just as committed to helping our students excel academically. This is evident in every week four of our Young Writer cycle where we focus more heavily on grammar, functional writing and more school based comprehension skills. With a strong foundation in English, students should find school’s English as easy as pie!

More fun and challenges are installed for summer and the coming year. The journey continues - hop on and join in the fun!

Together let’s embark on a Jubilant Journey!

Warm Regards,

Sarah Ling

Principal
