After 28 years as a primary school teacher in Hong Kong, Gail Clarke retired and migrated with her husband to Italy in 2004. From one migration to another, Gail started writing about migrating animals (parrots and arctic terns) and now advocates passionately for environment preservation. Gail is a well-experienced planet ambassador and will be sharing her daring stories with our P.1 – P.3 students on 13th March 2018.

With the same energy, humor and clarity found in his 50 books, David wows audiences at schools in the United States and beyond. David is an accomplished storyteller and a master at getting kids to think and have fun at the same time. His presentations lead children on entertaining and educational journeys that combine Math, Science, Reading and Writing. David will conduct a sharing session (that would include exciting Math moments) with our P.4 – P.6 students on 27th March 2018.

SCPS Battle of the Books 2018 (for P.5 & P.6 students)
Our P.5 & P.6 students will be participating in an exciting in-school competition called Battle of the Books in end June / early July 2018. This fun reading program will encourage students to work together and read a wide range of genres.

All P.5 and P.6 students will be given information about participating in this year’s competition in the month of January 2018. All students will be responsible for reading as many books as possible on the list. Battle of the Books is a great way for students to read great stories and compete to show their understanding of the story elements of each book.
