Drop Everything And Read (DEAR)

One of the main goals of the current curriculum reform in Hong Kong is to help students acquire a capacity for life-long learning. To pursue such an aim and to help students explore and discover the joys and treasures of reading, the College has launched a school-wide reading project, DEAR (Drop Everything and Read), since 2002. We believe that regular reading sessions can help to enhance our student's overall language skills.

This year, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning, all members of the College, including teachers and students, will spend 30 minutes on silent reading. They are encouraged to read books and newspapers of their own choice and share their reading experiences with teachers and schoolmates during sharing sessions.
