S5 City Forum: Smart lamp posts – 28 November 2019

What could possibly be a better way to learn about social issues apart from reading newspapers and scrolling for feeds on social media? That’s right, voicing our own opinions. Our S5 students have experienced a city forum on the topic of “smart lamp posts”. With different S5 classes representing different stakeholders in society, namely Legislators, the Hong Kong Government, General Public, I.T Companies and Human Rights Group respectively, the forum had sparked some nerve-wrecking, intense yet hilarious moments. Being the Chairperson of the forum, Mr. Hedley directed challenging questions to various stakeholders, who had responded dauntlessly. My most memorable one was directed to the Human Rights Group, which was asked, “if citizens have nothing to hide, why do they care so much about their privacy?” It was backfired by a sarcastic but witty remark – Why should we wear clothes to cover up our bodies then? It was incredible to see the swift and deep thinking of our S5 groups when the forum ended with joyful laughs.

S4 Personality test – 7 Nov 2019

I have a vivid imagination… I have a soft heart – Agree or disagree?  Our S4 students have spent an afternoon with Mr Hedley and their English teachers to find out who they are. Listening attentively and responding to Mr Hedley’s list of personality test questions, students have learned about different personality traits and about themselves.

S3 Busking

On 24 October, our S3 students have learned English through language arts and popular culture, in which they enjoyed a workshop on busking, the arts of street performance, with their teachers.

This has been the first time I met the new NET Mr Hedley. He had some challenges for us by asking us to research and present a busking group. Even though my groupmates and I were all very shy and I found it hard to give a presentation with such a short period of preparation time, we managed to do so under teachers’ encouragement and students’ support. We hope to do better next time.
