It was a morning of creative expression for S1 and S2 students on 3 July 2013, as they put pen to paper, and ideas to fruition, for the S1 Character Parade and S2 Jingle Competition. The Junior form came together to celebrate and affirm the creative efforts of their peers in designing the costumes of characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the designated S1 reader for the Refined English Enhancement Scheme; and composing jingles for a variety of innovative products.
The Refined English Enhancement Scheme (REES) is an initiative of the Education Bureau to promote an English friendly learning environment for all students through systematically planned curriculum to be implemented at different Junior forms. The REES at CLSMSS seeks to challenge students to grow and build-self confidence as users of English Language through a learning environment that inspires creativity and which encourages students to engage in the process of listening, speaking, reading and writing in English.
After thirty lessons on the designated S1 reader, the students were allowed the opportunity for self-expression in the Character Parade (S1). S1 students came dressed as characters from the book, and wrote their own scripts for their performances on stage. Some gave their own renditions of the different characters through role-play, whilst others danced. The Character Parade was a showcase of the students’ creative talents and camaraderie.
S2 students composed jingles for a variety of innovative products. They were judged for originality in lyrics and melody, and choreography of their jingle performance. Bedecked in beautiful costumes, the students took to the stage like ducks to water. They were real naturals on stage! The S2 Jingle Competition was a delightful treat to all.
The Character Parade and Jingle Competition were a celebration of the students’ learning journey, and there wasn’t a better way to culminate the academic year than to have all students enjoy themselves whilst learning.
