Let's get together to help local primary school students practice their English!
We're partnering with the Aplichau Kaifong Primary School (http://www.akps.edu.hk/) (AKPS) to run English playgroups for a group of Primary 1 students.
How can I help?
AKPS caters to underserved communities. The students rarely have opportunities to engage with native English speakers, so this is a great chance to help boost their confidence and encourage them to practice their English while engaging in simple activities (which could include craft making, playing games, reading books, etc.)
Never worked with kids before?
No problem! But you'll need plenty of patience and understanding :)
What time should I arrive?
We'll be holding a quick briefing session before the students arrive to run through the activities for the day, so please arrive promptly at 10:50am – we don't want to disappoint the students!
If you are unable to attend after you have RSVP'd, please change your status of RSVP to 'NO' at least 48 hours before the event date to let other volunteers have the opportunity to join.
How do I get to the school?
The closest MTR is Lei Tung Station, exit B (3-min walk). If it's your first time there, allow yourself extra time to walk from the MTR as it can be a little confusing. There are also lots of buses that stop in the area. Ring the bell at the entrance if the doors are closed and let the teacher know you're there to volunteer for the English playgroup.
Due to privacy reasons, please do not post images/videos of the students on social media.
See you there!
