In last Summer, Project WeCan collaborated with South China Morning Post (SCMP) to launch its pilot English writing programme.  Designed by experienced SCMP writers, the programme aimed to nurture senior form students’ interest in English and develop their writing, comprehension and communication skills through a 12-hour training course.  Around 60 students from 44 schools joined the pilot programme, and were able to write a short English essay after completing the course.

A company tour at SCMP’s office was also arranged for the students to better understand the operation of SCMP.  Project WeCan Committee members and representatives from the Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged of the Social Welfare Department joined the company tour to show support for students in their English learning journey.  Students considered the visit an eye-opening experience.

Feedback from the students:

“I learnt writing skills and how to create short stories. It helps me to handle the writing easier.”

“I can apply the skills I learnt from the course in different topics and questions, and to improve my writing level.”
