The 2015 Primary Chinese Language Curriculum was first implemented for the Primary One cohort in 2015 and subsequently rolled out to the same batch of students in Primary Five in 2019. The curriculum aims at enabling our students to communicate effectively in Chinese, to better appreciate their Chinese culture and to connect with other Chinese communities in Asia and beyond. Wei Hui, Yinghan and Michelle will provide insights on how young children learn Chinese in class using the 2015 Curriculum. The team will also demonstrate how schools can support their students in their transition from pre-school to primary school. Hands-on activities will be conducted for both parents and their children to provide ideas on how parents can engage their children to have fun learning Chinese.
