It・s Show Time!
English Co-curricular Activity- The 59th Hong Kong Schools Speech Festival


One of our school・s reputations rests on our continuous endeavor to provide students with an English rich learning environment. This is evident in our advocate and hence students・ active participation in the 59th Hong Kong Schools Speech Festival.

This year, more than 140 of our students joined an array of events in the festival. From Solo Verse Speaking to Prose Reading, from Choral Speaking to Public Speaking, we help them progress on a journey towards fulfillment of their own individual talents and abilities.

Through training up of students, we focus on students・ pronunciation, articulation and intonation in their speech. Such other paralinguistic features as gesture, eye contact and facial expressions are also being catered for. We emphasize overall performance and assess students in the progressive mastery of the overall performance skills.

With the skills and enthusiasm of both teachers and students, students come up with vibrant, exciting and vivid performances. Praised by the adjudicator as .A well timed performance having atmospheric tension built by the clever use of voices and vowels・, our Intermediate Choral Speaking Team outshone the other fourteen teams and got the championship for Form Three to Form Four Non-open Mixed Voice Choral Speaking event. Our Junior Choral Speaking Team got the First Runner Up for the Form One to Form Two Non-open Mixed Voice Choral Speaking event as well.

With the sensational performance which has impressed the adjudicator to have awarded an Honors score of 93 marks, Babani, Monica from Form 5D, came first in the Form Five Girls Non Open Solo Verse Speaking event. She was invited to perform in the Prize-winners・ Recital held at the RTHK in January 2008.

The experience of working with text, orchestrating performance with the voice as instrument, using solo and massed voices of different moods and quality, creating vocal sound-effects with dynamic effect, is one that no audience or participants will forget. It has been an unforgettable experience for teachers to work with such a variety of texts and bring students to performance standard.

We look forward to another staggering number of participants and prize winners next year; and more dynamic and innovative performances to come, which will absolutely bring colors to every corner of the school!
