Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration

Mid-Autumn Festival was celebrated in Xinghua Primary School every year. The origin of Mid-Autumn Festival was introduced to pupils to help them understand the culture. Recess activities such as tasting of moon cake, tea tasting, paper cutting and Chinese calligraphy were organized for pupils and teachers to have the opportunity to try out some hands-on Chinese cultural activities related to Mid-Autumn Festival.




Immersion Programme

A group of selected Primary five pupils embarked on a cultural exchange journey to Suzhou, Shanghai and Wuxi. The immersion programme aimed to develop pupils’ global awareness and cross cultural skill. Pupils had the chance to go to the local schools for classroom experience. Besides participating in cultural activities such as tea appreciation and making of tea pots, they also went for learning tours to cultural and historical sites.




School Wide Reading Programme

The School Wide Reading Programme aims to instil the love for reading in pupils. Pupils are issued Mother Tongue story books from the class libraries so that they could have at least one story book to read whenever and wherever they want. Guided reading and interesting follow-up activities are carried out in class. Certificates will be awarded to pupils who have achieved the reading targets.
