Ho, Ho, Ho!
The tree is lit, the Christmas books are out and the festive music is up and running during Lunchtime Library. There is something very special about sitting next to the Christmas tree curled up with a good book!
At this time of year we encourage the students to use the Library Lesson to sit and relax quietly with the book they have chosen, taking advantage of that uninterrupted 45 minutes to just enjoy some time to read.
Books for the holidays...
Also please remember that our E-book Library is open 24 hours, every day of the year! Students can log on and choose from over 500 Peak School Library chapter books no matter where in the world they are.
The great thing is that E-books will never be lost on the ski hill or damaged on the beach!
Looking for something for the kids to do over the holidays?
Every year, students across Hong Kong demonstrate their writing and artistic talents in the Hong Kong Young Writer's Award (http://www.hkywa.com). We are looking for entries from Peak School because we know that we have talent amongst us! The piece of writing needs to be no more than 1000 words (that's 1.5 pages of a Word doc single spaced) and based on the classic Chinese tale, Journey To The West.
Journey To The West
The piece of writing must not be a retelling, rather a new story, using Journey to the West as inspiration.
Maybe it's a pilgrimage to the West side of town, or the West bank of the river... maybe the Western mountain range in the Alps.
Maybe there is a monkey lord, or talking pigs involved, maybe just a band of four travellers. What thwarts them? Who do they run into? What are they trying to do?
The possibilities are actually endless!
Finalists will have their work published in the anthology and be invited to the awards ceremony held at Cyberport with the renowned author Nuri Vittachi presenting the prizes.
Submission deadline is 15th January 2018.
