P.6 Mock Interviews Much Welcomed
P.6 Mock Interviews were held on 5th December and 12th December, with 550 parents and 671 P.6 students from 12 different schools attending.

 

Thanks to the training and supervision by our teachers, 40 English Ambassadors have been offered with an opportunity to enhance their language proficiency, both Chinese and English, by taking the role of being the interviewers in the mock interviews.

In the mock interviews, there are four different parts, including a 1-minute self-introduction in English, reading aloud a passage and answering related questions in English, group discussion and individual response to social issues in Cantonese. Throughout the interviews, our teachers made constructive comments on the performance of the P.6 students with a criteria sheet given to the students for reference. A debriefing session was also conducted to the P.6 students to give feedbacks and advice on the interview skills so as to ensure that participants can grasp the necessary skills for interviews.

The parents could also enjoy the performance in the hall while their children were having their interviews. The highlight was the choral speech presented by students. The performance also included an evangelization English drama, The Lost Son, and bandsinging of 'Hail Mary'.

Participating in such a kind of mock interview is a better way than any others to prepare a P.6 student for the admission tests that could affect his/her future. The P.6 students found this event a valuable experience since they received valuable comments and advice throughout the process and they could finally put the skills they previously acquired into practice.

On the whole, the influences of the event, both to the participants and our Choi Hung boys, are healthy and fruitful. As a Catholic School we are happy to offer the service to our neighbours.
