Integrated Programme

 

  • Our school provides Integrated Programme. Two special childcare workers take care of twelve children with special educational needs. These children are provided with individual counselling, lifestyle training and social learning so they can grow happily with other children to achieve integrated education effectively. (Referrals for this service are made through the Central Referral System of the Social Welfare Department).

 

 

On-site Pre-school Rehabilitation Services

 

  • Our school has participated in the “On-Site Pre-school Rehabilitation Services” scheme introduced by the Social Welfare Department. Po Leung Kuk’s “I Can Fly” program provides the school with on-site services offered by a multidisciplinary team of professionals, including psychologists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, physiotherapists, and special childcare workers, to provide support services like assessment, training and counselling services for children with special educational needs or with poor learning abilities and their parents.

 

 

Support for Non-Chinese Speaking Children

 

Our school respects different cultures. We are committed to encourage and support the integration of non-Chinese speaking children into the campus through helping non-Chinese speaking children to build good social relationships with local children and learn Chinese. Our school actively invites non-Chinese speaking parents and children to participate in school activities, so as to have more interactions with each other and promote the sense of belonging of non-Chinese speaking parents and children to the school.

 

Teachers:

  • Our school will establish a non-Chinese speaking focus group, within which regular meetings will be held. The school will also formulate appropriate curriculum according to the abilities and needs of non-Chinese speaking children, and follow-up on their progress.
     
  • Our school will have teachers to attend courses related to non-Chinese speaking children organized by the Education Bureau. We will also invite pre-school education professional tutors to jointly organize training and workshops, so as to improve teachers’ skills in teaching and taking care of non-Chinese speaking students, and to understand their cultural background and needs.

 

Parents:

  • Our school values “parenting education”. We arrange various talks or workshops for local and non-Chinese speaking parents, so parents can learn knowledge and skills related to parenting education.
  • Our school will arrange “parent groups”. Through organizing various workshops and gatherings, these groups aim at enhancing communication among teachers, local parents and non-Chinese speaking parents.
  • Our school encourages non-Chinese speaking parents to be “parents volunteers”, so as to deepen their understanding of the school and school life of their children.
  • Our school will invite non-Chinese speaking parents and children to participate in festive activities held on Chinese traditional festivals, so as to exchange the folk customs of different countries and promote mutual understanding.

 

Children:

  • Through decorating the environment, utilizing action cards, and having simple communication with non-Chinese speaking children through teachers’ oral pronunciation and movements, non-Chinese speaking children can progressively listen to and understand simple Cantonese instructions, which can enhance their motivation to learn Chinese.
  • Purchase reading pen and produce electronic learning materials for children, so they can review the pronunciation and order of strokes of vocabularies at home through using the reading pen/intranet.
  • Carry out different extension activities through nursery rhymes and storybooks, such as verbal creation of nursery rhymes, role plays, find simple Chinese words in storybooks, so as to provide more opportunities for non-Chinese speaking children to “listen more” and “speak more”.
  • Teachers will arrange local and non-Chinese speaking children to sit next to each other, so they can help each other in their studies and other activities, provide more chances for them to interact and communicate, thus facilitating social development of non-Chinese speaking children.
