Hong Kong University Summer Immersion 2018

In the two weeks from 11- 22 June, Ektra had the pleasure of hosting a group of eighteen students and one lecturer from the University of Hong Kong (HKU). Dr. Valerie Yip, brought her gifted student teachers over from Hong Kong and they were here as interns to observe and practice teaching Science under the guidance of four mentor teachers led by Mr. Jesse Litapon, Secondary Science Coordinator (English Program).

This is the third year that HKU and Ektra have collaborated together under the program “Summer Immersion 2018”. The program was very fruitful, both for the HKU interns and for Ektra’s teachers and students. Not only did the interns have an opportunity to teach lessons, they also led several extra-curricular activities in our Secondary and Primary Departments. Several activities were conducted including; a special Mandarin lesson for Secondary students, a Senses Dance for Year 1 and a Body Systems Jigsaw Game for Year 6 students. Furthermore, Ektra students were given the chance to practice their interpersonal skills, by interviewing the professors and HKU student interns for Ektra Today!

On the final day, the interns presented multimedia reports to Administrators, mentor students and their peers about their time at Ektra. On returning home, they presented these reports to senior administrators at their University.
