NET Scheme at S.K.H. Lee Shiu Keung Primary School
Creating an English-speaking environment enabled students to overcome difficulties in speaking English. Our NETs, Mr. Ridley and Mr. Connor, work in partnership with our experienced English language teachers. Our NETs help students learn English in an authentic English learning environment. In addition, they help develop school-based teaching strategies and curriculum materials and contribute to the professional development of fellow teachers.
Mr. Ridley works with children at P.1, P.2 and P.3 levels, while Mr Connor works with children at P.4, P.5 and P.6 levels. Stimulating and enjoyable activities are conducted to enhance teaching and learning.
English Week highlights included booth games and inter-class choral speaking competition. The booth games boosted students’ interest in learning new vocabulary and communicating in English.
The inter-class choral speaking competition improved students’ ability and confidence in speaking English aloud. Both attractions maximised students’ exposure to English.
To better equip our students for a successful secondary school admission interview, Mr. Connor, Mr. Ridley and the English teachers conducted an interview workshop for P.6 students in December. Through teachers’ demonstration in the mock interview workshop, students learnt about the basics and techniques of interpersonal communication. Students were able to indicate their strengths and weaknesses through the mock interview workshop. Each of them took turns to be the interviewer, interviewee, and the observer, the experience provided valuable feedback through peer-evaluation.
To improve students’ letter writing skills, Mr. Connor and Mr Ridley wrote a letter to all students at festival days. Most students were eager to reply because they LOVE the two NETs’ lessons! ❤
Hello everybody! My name is Mr. Ridley, and I am the NET Teacher for P1, 2 and 3 this year. I am from the United Kingdom, and I was born in a city called Doncaster. I moved to Hong Kong over 4 years ago to teach and quickly fell in love with Hong Kong. I am trying my best to learn some Cantonese, so I understand how difficult it is to learn a different language, especially one so different to my own! I am excited to teach at SKH Lee Shiu Keung Primary School and getting to know all my students. I enjoy teaching in a relaxed environment and making my lessons fun and enjoyable for my students because I truly believe you learn better in a lesson if you enjoy it!
Hi everyone! My name is Mr. Connor. I am one of the Native-English Teachers here at Lee Shiu Keung Primary School. This year, I will be teaching P.4, P.5 and P.6. I am from one of the biggest cities in the UK called Birmingham. With over 5 years of experience in education, my passion for teaching is as strong as ever. I love coming to school each day to help students learn native-level English and prepare them for the future. In helping students improve their English ability, I aim to make lessons and interactions as enjoyable and as fun as possible. My aim is for students to improve their English ability but also to have fun in the process. I thoroughly look forward to teaching Lee Shiu Keung students this year!
Letter to NETs
I found great enjoyment in this musical due to my love for drama. It taught me the importance of remaining calm, and I had the opportunity to engage in enjoyable activities like dancing. Performing confidently on stage was a significant achievement for me. As a naturally shy boy, I learned to cultivate bravery and enhance my self-assurance. Also, I met a lot of friends there.
