Join this to move forward a UN Sustainable Development Goal SDG4SDG4

Do you know the meaning of the phrase, “A storm in a teacup”? This is an idiom that Hong Kong primary school students need to memorize for their unseen dictation. Nowadays, spoon-feeding students is a common practice in Hong Kong education system. Many primary school students go to bed very late at night because of the tons of homework that they need to finish.

With all the pressure arising from homework and quizzes, as well as the sense of powerlessness they feel when learning English, many students gradually lose their interest or motivation in learning the language, not to mention that students in underprivileged family are not able to afford expensive tuition fee for English tutorial lesson, which further leads to the education gap between children from rich and poor families.

In view of this, one of the awardees of Mrs Choi Ma Oi Kuen Public Service Leadership Program Award this year partners with Principal Chan Free Tutorial World - Cheng Yu Tung Kwai Chung Learning Centre to provide learning support to the underprivileged children who have financial difficulties through interactive games.

「A storm in a teacup」,這是小學二年級的背默內容,作為大學生的你知不知道這句意思是解作「小題大做」呢?今時今日香港的教育制度依舊採用填鴨式教導。小學生每天都要應付十多份功課至深宵,當中的「英國語文」功課及測驗都是他們每天的煩惱。沉重的功課壓力、成績的下滑、面對英文功課的無力感,令他們漸漸失去學習英語的興趣。意志消沉,加上經濟能力使他們未能參與昂貴的補習興趣班,令基層的小朋友和其他學生在英語上的差距愈來愈大。

有見及此,其中一位獲頒蔡馬愛娟女士社會服務領袖計劃獎得同學與陳校長免費補習天地鄭裕彤葵涌學習中心合作,為基層弱勢學生提供學習支援。現招募科大同學擔任義工協助活動進行,帶領不同遊戲學習英語,使小朋友重拾英語的興趣,增加他們學習英語的自信心。
