Literacy Week

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. An idea was hatched to host a book fair, where students and parents could come, browse, and buy books and other literacy related material. In addition to the book fair, teachers agreed that various activities and games would also be held to promote reading.             On the Literacy Week Event day , students and teachers dressed in a costume representing their favourite character in literature. Characters such as Harry Potter and superheroes from students’ favourite comic books were popular choices. A costume pageant was held to showcase the most unique and original outfits. 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...
