ENGLISH BOOK READING FOR UNDERPRIVILEGED YOUNG CHILDREN

THE PROGRAMME
The English Book Reading Programme is designed where the attributes of love, courage, positive thinking and kindness are incorporated in the selected English story books.  There will also be role play; work sheets; arts and crafts; and games etc. to further enhance the deprived children’s confidence in English speaking and foster their passion of reading and learning.  Consequently, your contribution to these children is more than just reading a book.


THE STUDENTS AND VENUE
There will be around 24 underprivileged children from Sham Shui Po, Cheung Sha Wan, and Lai Chi Kwok districts.  They are between ages 7 to 9, Primary 1 to 3 from local government schools and very low income families.

The classroom will be in Tai Kok Tsui Kowloon because of the proximity to these children.  We will address our own transportation at later stage.


SESSIONS AND MATERIALS
In order to attract more children to attend, the Programme is structured as an extra curriculum activity on Saturday mornings during summer breaks, Christmas, and Easter next year.  There are 10 sessions in total and each session will last about 2 hours.  You can pick the sessions convenient to you.

All books, activities materials, stationaries, training toys, etc., will be fully prepared for you.  And at the end of all sessions, there will be a Graduation Party at the Club where you are obviously invited.


VOLUNTEERS
The programme needs at least 5 volunteers per session. 

You can bring along children too.  But your children has to be age 12 and above in order to be a Book Reader.  Based on our experience, our little students do not feel comfortable with other kids of similar age whose English is far superior than themselves.  For your children younger than 12, they can still join the “other activities” after the book reading.

Please indicate your availability by clicking the Register Now button at the top of this page.  Or email charity@rhkyc.org.hk for any enquiries.

A Briefing will take place before commencement of the Programme.

We thank you again for your interest to help on this rewarding and fun activity.
