2017 ENGLISH & CHINESE SUMMER COURSE @ HILLSIDE WORLD ACADEMY (HWA)
Learn English & Chinese through the IB approaches to teaching and learning.
About the HWA summer course….
In many top international schools, the Principal goes away on the same school holidays as their academic staff. It is accepted in these schools that foreigners need to return to their home nations during the school holidays. HWA is probably a school that bucks the trend, because the Principal is a local (albeit one who has plenty of international experience) and thus follows a different leave scheme.
We bring you the Good news from HWA!
HWA offers academic scholarships to G10 and G11 new students with outstanding academic achievements and sound character. Shortlisted applicants for HWA scholarships will have to attend interviews and sit for written examination.
HWA academic scholarships cover full or partial sponsorship of tuition fees but not other charges.

This is the text of the speech delivered at the Teacher’s Appreciation Day, before the school assembly of teachers and students.
I normally deliver my speech in English first. As this speech has to do with my journey of learning Chinese, I shall break with tradition and deliver the Chinese speech first.
