Darkness. Cries of despair. They’re all clouding the world like hell. School suspension for three months is definitely too much for me, and for me, there is nothing like it. As a sixth-grader, this year might be the most extraordinary year for me, and it makes me miss school more than ever.
I love my school. It’s a place where we get to bring ourselves together to learn, to help each other, and to socialize with our friends. New challenges and decisions are to be tackled and to be made every day. But the best of all, there is unity and collaboration. Peers can advise each other on life or academics.
If I were given a choice to choose a job in my school, I’d want to be a teacher. It’ll help me a lot on the patience route and help me to understand the inner world of children more. Everyone knows that children are easily distracted, but love to have fun. To make a child interested in learning, you are best to use a bit of fun in it. For General Studies I would probably do some experiments that require adult supervision and take them on tons of field trips. Language lessons would be writing a storybook or setting up a theatre show according to the latest topic.
For Music lessons, students could be taken to concerts at weekends, and for Art lessons, students could be taken around Hong Kong to inspire them to paint, sketch or draw, this is life! Most likely, I think I would do well in this job! Not because I think I am intelligent, but because I believe that allowing children to ‘learn the right way’ is essential. A book, a pen, and a teacher are not enough!
It always depends on the teaching process that inspires the hearts of thousands of youngsters. Through fun learning, students will learn to have a positive perspective towards life and henceforward and learn to love and enjoy school as much as I do. What would you choose to do at this school? Think twice. Will yours be the same as mine? Or perhaps will it be different?
I am a primary six student studying at NPMPS. It was established in 1959 on Cheung Hong Street and moved to Pak Fuk Road in 2018. In the same year, it changed from a half-day school to a whole-day school. I love NPMPS very much because the teachers are very kind and patient, while my classmates are helpful and understanding. In addition to this, the lessons are fun and interesting. The building is beautiful, and there are many activities for us to do.
If I can change my role at NPMPS, then I would like to be a teacher. I always dreamt of being a teacher when I was younger, as that is what I would like to be. I enjoyed role-playing as a teacher. I would imagine having a blackboard on the wall, with a classroom full of students and myself being a fantastic teacher. I think a teacher is an important person in the school as they need to teach and guide the students. What’s more, a teacher grows with the students and help them build a new life and a future.
If I become a teacher, I would make NPMPS a better place for the students to study in. Firstly, I would add Science for the P5 and P6 students so that they can do experiments to arouse their curiosity. Secondly, I would let the students choose one favourite subject and then relocate them into different subject groups; this can increase learning flexibility so that the students are motivated to learn more.
Thirdly I would plan the lessons well and make sure that every student understands the topics. Students will be encouraged to present their ideas during lesson time. Furthermore, I will give each student a table lamp and a cushion to create a comfortable learning environment as they have at home.
Last but not least, I will encourage students to love each other and also their family members. I believe I will do my job well because I am a student at NPMPS at present. I know NPMPS, and I want to contribute to it. On top of this, I am a serious and persevering person. I would try my best to prepare well and to be a good teacher. I have joined the peer reading program, and I have been a little teacher for three years already.
When I am older, I will have a beautiful memory of my favourite school, NPMPS with all the students together.
Hello, I am Chan Ming Yin. I am a Primary Six student at North Point Methodist Primary School. Over these past six years, I had an enjoyable time. Especially I made lots of good friends and gained a lot of knowledge from school.
I like my school very much. All the teachers and helpers are kind and friendly, and all my classmates are nice and helpful too. I remembered when I first met Ryan, I only said, “Hello, let’s play together!” After that, we became best friends, and we always play together. I can’t believe that we have studied together for six years.
If I could have a new role at NPMPS, I would like to be a PE teacher, because I love sports very much. No matter basketball, football, or running, I like to play it! I can also teach my students how to do exercise daily so that they can become fit and healthy. If I need to make the school a better place for studying, I would set up some educational games during academic lessons, such as ‘code breaker’, ‘bridge’ or have a ‘DIY’ activity.
Learning is not limited to sitting down, listening to a teacher and making notes. We should include more interactive activities during lesson time to learn more innovatively. Finally, I would love to become a PE Teacher, I think it is a meaningful job, and I can help the little ones. I will be a dedicated teacher, and make sure my job is done correctly with the help and support from my Principal and the other teachers.
If I were a teacher of in the 80th year celebration in 2040
“Good morning students!” I said. “Good Morning, Miss Lo!” my student replied. Yes! You are right, I have been a teacher in North Point Methodist Primary School after I have grown up. Our school have been preparing for the 80th year celebration in 2040. Now, I am decorating the classroom with my students. This has brought up my memory 20 years ago when I was a Primary 6 student, which was an unforgettable year. Although I did not spend the whole year with my classmates due to class suspension, I think that if I really know what I had learnt in Primary 6, I was already satisfied.
“Because of the novel coronavirus, all classes in Hong Kong have to be suspended indefinitely from now,” The TV reporter said. Some of our classmates thought that was a good news. However, I had a few questions in my mind. How strong was the virus? Why did it make the school not open? And when could we go back to school again?
I really wanted to have the answer at that time. But I did not. Staying at home every day, it was seriously boring. I missed my days spent with my classmates – working on group projects, playing card games or even sharing lunchboxes together. I really enjoyed spending my time with them.
At that time, I was thinking if we could have the 60th graduation ceremony. Eventually I thought that it was not necessary to have a graduation ceremony – when I treasured the time staying with my classmates and teachers in my life in Primary 6, it was already a graduation ceremony.
During the class suspension in my Primary 6, our teachers made teaching videos for us. I knew that they tried their best to make us learn the new knowledge. When we did something wrong, they tried to help us to fix them well, and so we would not do them again. They loved their students. And so do I now. I wish I will always remember how our teachers helped us in my primary school life. Thank you, my teachers!
After the society recovered from the novel coronavirus, our school held the 60th graduation ceremony. Our friendship never changed. We had a party after the ceremony. We ate together, played together and laughed together. I could not forget that day. Virus made us not able to stay together in the school year of Primary 6, but not for our hearts! Thank you, my classmates!
“May I wish North Point Methodist Primary School a 60th Happy Birthday and wish you can always bring love, care and knowledge to students!” I greeted my alma mater in 2020.
Bell rings in 2040 again! “Miss Lo!” my students bring me back from my memory to reality. I smile with tears. I am happy to be part of North Point Methodist Primary School again!
