ENGLISH BOOK READING 2019 FOR UNDERPRIVILEGED YOUNG CHILDREN

THE PROGRAMME
Riding on the successful English Book Reading Programme in 2018 with over 40 member volunteers, the Charity Foundation will continue this meaningful programme in 2019.  

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. 



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.  There are 10 sessions in total and each session will last about 2 hours, from 1000hrs – 1200hrs.  You can pick the sessions convenient to you.

All books, activities materials, stationaries, training toys, etc., will be fully prepared for you.  A briefing will be held 15 minutes (i.e. 0945hrs).  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 10 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. 

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.

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