During the month of November, a wide range of reading activities took place to encourage in students a habit of reading Chinese regularly, regardless of their proficiency in the language. At Regency Park campus, primary students immersed themselves in reading and marked their progress by filling out mini reports shaped like leaves. In the end, the students’ collective efforts produced a flourishing, leafy Reading Tree that served as a visible source of pride right by the cafeteria doors. At Century Park campus, the competition of collecting sentences from books motivated students in Year 5 and up to read more Chinese stories and novels. Putting on Chinese plays, making bookmarks, writing stories, producing storybooks, and dressing up as favorite book characters were also just a few of the activities that made the Chinese lessons come alive for students.

Chinese Coordinator Amy Yang has nothing but praise for the Chinese teachers’ efforts: “Not only has this month given students many pleasant memories, but it also helped the students develop strong reading habits in Chinese learning. We eagerly look to another fantastic Chinese Reading Month next November.”
