Due to the latest situation of Seasonal Influenza, EDB announced that all kindergartens will start their Chinese New Year holidays tomorrow.
However, all Kumon Education Centres will keep opened and reinforce all preventive measures. Parents should take notice of the health conditions of their children. Children with fever or symptoms should seek medical advice promptly and should avoid going to crowded public places, stay at home and take rest. Kumon instructor will arrange homework exchange for those students who cannot attend Kumon class.
Hong Kong students are often criticised for lack of proactivity and self-motivation. In the light of the aggravating situation in recent years, Ms. Leung, a teacher who keeps a low profile, quit her job of more than a decade in higher education and joined KUMON four years ago. With a commitment to differentiating instruction, she helps children develop a positive attitude towards learning from the very beginning, getting them prepared for their tertiary education with strong self-learning attitude.
Under Hong Kong’s education system, many loving, aspiring teachers are losing their passion as they are occupied with administrative duties that are often too exhausting. In fact, many of those who dream big here are not ready to give up yet.The only thing missing is a platform where they can make their dreams come true. It was enthusiasm behind Ms SO’s decision to leave the conventional education system, landing on the educational stage of Kumon in a different role.With progress in teaching and learning, her interest was further rekindled through Kumon. She has changed many lives and become an educator who really grows with students.
Newly launched Kumon Chinese programme includes nursery rhyme and poem which effectively cultivate learning motivation through reading and listening. Abilities in listening, reading, writing and Hanyu Pinyin are progressively developed through learning sizable and practical vocabularies, mastering sentence structures, grasping key message of passages. Solid foundation in reading comprehension and writing are developed ultimately.
