April 21, 2023 saw the fifth meeting of SKHTST TYLP (2022-2023) at our school from 4 pm to 6 pm. Our twenty regular TYLP members were joined by 30 primary students from three different primary schools who volunteered enthusiastically in all sections of the meeting and were given souvenirs and certificates at the end of the meeting.
The meeting was honoured to have Ms Ivy CHEUNG as the Prepared Speech Evaluator and the General Evaluator. Ms CHEUNG is currently a club member from Oasis Toastmasters Club. She was a club president and area director before. She gave an interactive Workshop on “Evaluate to Motivate”. English teacher Mr Nathan MARTIN was the Language Evaluator. Participants would increasingly take up more roles as evaluators in subsequent meetings.
As a learning community, participants volunteered or were assigned different roles such as emcee, speakers and evaluators of prepared or Table Topics (impromptu) speeches, secretaries of evaluators and facilitators (timer and ah-counter).
Our principal Mr Jaxon WANG welcomed the visitors and several English teachers, including our former Vice-principal Mrs Anne TAM, Miss Heidi LAU, our program’s Teacher Advisors Ms Cherlotte LAM, Mr Raymond Lam and Miss Nikki HAI, together with our alumni coaches Miss Constance WONG and Miss Bonnie WONG enjoyed seeing the dynamic interactions among students from Primary 5 to Form 5 at the meeting.
Jaren LAU (P6) and Nicky MO (P6) were voted as the Best Prepared Speech Speaker and the Best Table Topics Speaker respectively by all participants. Also, Annette WONG (P6) and Hailey WONG (P6) were voted to give the Best Speech of Prepared Speeches and the Best Speech of Table Topics respectively.
