Literacy Week

          This year, Tzu Chi Primary School set out on a mission. A mission to change and grow our students’ mindset about reading and literacy. In order to achieve this mission, we decided to dedicate a whole week of school to promote a love for reading.             First, English teachers as well as teachers from other departments met to decide what a Literacy Week Event would look like.

Students and teachers were very excited to see what character their friends had chosen to dress as.             Classes made their way to the 5th floor Performance Hall and during the opening ceremony selected students and teachers had everyone on their feet singing and dancing along to the theme of the new hit musical The Greatest Showman. After the performance, students proceeded to the activities planned out by the teachers. One of the activities created by the teachers was a speech choir. Students from primary 1 to primary 4 memorized and performed a poem or short story for their classmates. Judges and teachers cheered the students on as...
