About the English Corner
The English Corner at SKH Lam Woo Memorial Secondary School is a place where students can drop in at lunch or after school to play games, watch movies or chat with friends. They can also borrow movies, music CDs, books, manga and magazines.
The English Corner, or ‘Eng Con’ as it is called by students, is normally open every school day at lunch (1:10 – 1:40) and after school (3:45 – 5:00). It began operations in September 2006 and is run by a team of approximately 20 to 50 students from Forms One to Five.
The English Corner has been successful in helping create an English-rich environment at the school. In past years, we focused more on lending out items like music CDs, books and DVDs, with students borrowing more than 8,000 items per year. However, are now focusing more on things like games and activities.
We have a wide range of resources—movies, music CDs, books, magazines and manga. To encourage students to broaden their horizons and develop interests in other cultures.
In the English Corner, students also express their feelings in several notebooks and sketchbooks. You can see some of their comments and sketches on this blog: No One Beside Me
This is what the English Corner looked like during a typical lunchtime (The video was taken using a toy camera—the Digital Harinezumi 2).
