You or your representatives are cordially invited to cover a launch ceremony for the ‘Good Character English Animation Series’, organised by The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK), which will be held on 31 March (Friday).
The project is under the ‘English Language Education for Students with Learning Diversity in Junior Primary’ Scheme, which encompasses 11 video stories in school settings. The series was developed along a framework which covers 10 priority values and attitudes, as set out by the Education Bureau*. They are: ‘Perseverance’, ‘Respect for others’, ‘Responsibility’, ‘National Identity’, ‘Integrity’, ‘Commitment’, ‘Care for others’, ‘Law-abidingness’, ‘Empathy’ and ‘Diligence’, while an additional theme of ‘Inclusion’ was also included. Corresponding to the curriculum of English language education at primary level, the full animation series will be free for the general public to access.
Attending the ceremony will be EdUHK President Professor Stephen Cheung Yan-leung, EdUHK Vice President (Academic) and Provost Professor John Lee Chi-kin, Head of Department of English Language Education Professor Michelle Gu Mingyue and Assistant Professor Dr April Liu Yiqi. On the same occasion, the Principal of Marymount Primary School Ms Brenda Lo Ka-ming will deliver a keynote speech, followed by a panel discussion on how to make use of multiple pedagogical strategies to enhance English language learning among primary school students.
