Mr Morne Barnardo,
Hello everyone! I hope your summer holiday was as lovely as mine, and that you are ready for the new year and the unique challenges that lie ahead of us. I’ve just returned from South Africa, and am delighted to be back in Hong Kong together with my family.
This year I will be teaching P2, P3, and P5, I will also be in charge of the school’s news channel, and the rugby club. In P2 and P5, we are going to use a new curriculum named ‘DTS- Development of Text Sets’ where we will follow a set theme for the term, supported with guide questions that students need to try and answer after each lesson. We will have a wide variety of fun activities in the classroom that will promote an active learning environment. Technology, group discussions and debates are just some of the learning strategies we will implement. On top of that, I want to encourage students to ask questions during lesson time, as this will help in creating an educational environment where everyone can learn something new.
Furthermore, for the ones joining the rugby club, I am looking into a few touch rugby competitions around Hong Kong, where our school can take part in, and where each individual can show their talents and skills. In addition to this, I will also help the CNETs on English Days, where we will have game booths and a scavenger hunt for the whole school. We will also be in the playground after lunch where we can skip and play with the ‘Hoola-hoops’ together, and if you want to communicate with us outside of the classroom, then this will be an excellent opportunity. I am excited about meeting every student and look forward to the coming school year!
I'm absolutely delighted to be a part of NPMPS’ (North Point Methodist Primary School) family as a CNET teacher this year. Don’t be fooled by my looks, although I am of Chinese descent, I was born and raised in Canada where I recently graduated from my undergraduate degree in psychology with a focus in child development. While studying, I volunteered as a tutor for various subjects such as: English, mathematics, and science.
In this upcoming year, I will be working with students in P1, P3, and P6. I will try my best to encourage our students and more importantly, your child(ren), in learning and applying English through interactive and entertaining lessons. In addition to teaching P1, 3, and 6, I will be co-operating with other teachers in running the EAT Team. If you ever see me in passing, feel free to say hello!
My name is India Law and I am one of the new English teachers joining North Point this year on behalf of the Chatteris Educational Foundation. Alongside the rest of the team of NETs and local teachers, I will be teaching P1, 2 & 4 and I am really looking forward to get to know all of the students.
As well as the above levels, I will also be working with the English Ambassador Team (with members from P4-6) to promote interactive use of English across the school. We will use special events and exciting games to show everyone just how fun learning English can be!
I am originally from England, UK and I graduated from university earlier this summer with a Communications degree. This is my first ever time in Hong Kong, so I still have a lot of sightseeing and eating to do! I am passionate about teaching English and hope to instill confidence in students to enhance their skills in reading and allow them to speak more confidently.
This will be my first year at North Point Methodist Primary School as a Chatteris Native English Teacher. Alongside the NETs and local teachers I will be working with P4, P5, and P6 classes. This will be my third year living in Hong Kong. My previous years were spent working at a Vocational Training College, also through the Chatteris Educational Foundation. I also have experience working within education at a secondary school in England and an English academy in South Korea. I am very excited about making the move to a primary school and look forward to meeting students and to start teaching. Along with regular classes I will be helping run the school news team, NPMPS Channel, and I’ll also be running an extracurricular program that aims to give students the opportunity for more English talking time. I am passionate about English and hope to pass this on to the students through fun and engaging lessons.
