Mr Morne Barnardo,
I hope you all had a wonderful summer holiday, and are excited about the new school year. I had a lovely break, and I look forward to seeing all of you again, especially our new P1 students.
This year, I will be teaching the same groups as last year, P1, P2, and P5, and you can all look forward to a few exciting changes to the reading activities during lesson time, in particular for P2. We will continue with DTS (Development of Text sets) Units in the first two terms, and during the first term, we will learn more about Fairytales and your favourite superheroes.
P5 will also have a DTS Unit, but this will only be implemented in the second term. P1 students will enjoy reading many storybooks, and learn more about wild animals and what they like to eat.
The objectives of the reading workshop are to have fun, ask questions, and encourage free expression in an educational environment.
Furthermore, we will sing songs, play games, and have various stations where students can interact with their teachers by doing hands-on activities. In addition to this, Mr Ho and I will run a fitness club where we will do lots of exciting sporting activities, and get fit at the same time. So be ready to come and enjoy a whole lot of new experiences.
I look forward to meeting all of you, and encourage each student to enjoy the new school year, to do their best, and to believe in themselves!
Welcome back everyone! I am Miss Minnie. This will be my second year working as an English Language Teaching Assistant in NPMPS. I am from Canada and also worked in Singapore. After that I came back to Hong Kong and taught mainly in a number of kindergartens and some other primary schools.
Alongside the NETs and local teachers, I will be working with students in P.1, P.2 and P.3. Besides, I will also be leading the extra-curricular activity "Little Master Chef", whereby students will share good conversations and develop English speaking confidence through a variety of activities and games about cooking.
I'm very excited to see what this new school year has to offer! Let's walk down our hallways to a great year filled with new things to learn!
This will be my third year at North Point Methodist Primary School as an English Language Teaching Assistant. This year, alongside the ELTAs and local teachers, I will be working with P3, P4, and P6 classes. I will also be helping to run the drama club and EAT team which will give students the opportunity to use English in different ways outside of the usual classroom setting. This will be my fifth year living in Hong Kong. My previous years were spent working at a number of different schools with 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 passionate about English and hope to pass this on to the students through fun and engaging lessons.
My name is Miss Alexandra and this is my first year at North Point Methodist Primary School as an English Language Teaching Assistant. I must say, I am delighted to be a part of the school team and I look forward to the beginning of the school year and meeting all the students.
I was born in Russia and moved to Hong Kong only last year. So, I still have a lot to explore about this wonderful city and the people living in it. I have been teaching English for 8 years, and I really enjoy it! This year alongside the NET’s and local teachers, I am teaching P4, P5 and P6 classes. I have plenty of ideas on how to make the learning process enjoyable and amusing!
I have a degree in History and I think this is one of the most important subjects taught at school. If there are students who think history is a jumble of names and dates attached to events long over with and people long dead — they just didn’t have a good teacher yet! History helps us develop a better understanding of the world, ourselves and other people. It makes us better decision-makers. If we are lucky to have a chance to visit any of Hong Kong splendid museums, I would be happy to give my little input on this.
Also, this year I am involved with the Drama club. I graduated from a Ballet Academy and had experience in acting classes. So, I am sure, together with the students, we will have fun during these extracurricular activities!
I am looking forward to having a great and productive year! I hope it will be memorable for both students and teachers.
