Non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students and parent’s support

Non-Chinese speaking students are ethnic minorities. Due to geographical language, cultural and religious differences, they tend to experience learning difficulties, especially when learning Chinese. Following the amendment of Free Quality Kindergarten Education policy, we participate in the work group of “EDB online activity- Supporting Learning and Teaching for Non-Chinese Speaking Children” and “C-for- Chinese@JC” Project. Through the peer interactions, games, situations, role plays etc. provided in the groups, those activities can enhance the interest of learning Chinese for NCS students who will learn the structure of Chinese characters and continue the language learning process.

1.  Supporting NCS students in learning Chinese at school
2.  Taking care of the growing needs of NCS students
3.  Improving the social development of NCS students
4.  Developing an inclusive school culture for facilitating NCS student to integrate in school life

If NCS parents have any enquiries, please contact our Kindergarten supervisor, Miss Ho (TEL: 22420082) or email us ([email protected]) for enquiries.
