SHKP Reading Club Read & Share promoting reading culture at schools
Award presentation ceremony celebrates fruitful 2015-16
20,000 teachers and students feel the joy of reading through 80 school events


23 Aug 2016


Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited’s SKHP Reading Club and the HK Aided Primary School Heads Association presented the Read & Share programme of 80 events in 2015-16 including seminars and workshops with writers to spread the fun of reading with 20,000 teachers and students at different schools.  A One-page Book Competition was popular with students and drew over 1,500 submissions.  The Club held an award presentation ceremony today (23 August) to mark the end of this year’s Read & Share, to praise the students, teachers and schools for their outstanding performance and preview coming activities in 2016-17.

More than 60 schools participated in Read & Share, which was intended to develop a reading habit in students.  The One-page Book Competition saw outstanding students in junior and senior divisions win gold, silver, bronze and two merit awards.  Read & Share ran a number of activities over the year to inspire students and develop their interest and creativity in writing.  The activities were hosted by 14 celebrities and writers who told students of their unique experience in different formats including creative workshops, seminars by Young Writers’ Debut Competition winners, storytelling and more.

The One-page Book Competition had a Day in the Library theme and asked students to make mini books in any style on a piece of A3 paper.  The junior primary division winner Grace Lo described an experience in the library after arguing with her parents inspired by a book and a dream (she soon reconciled with her parents).  The senior primary division winner Lui Choi-yi discovered an Egg of Ability concealing a piece of paper with words on it.  She reflected and realized that to acquire ability it is important to learn from your peers.  Drawing inspiration from daily lives, the award-winning students created their stories with vivid imagination and innocence.

Outstanding Performance Awards were presented to the students and teachers nominated by participating schools for their good performance in sharing and promoting the joy of reading.  PLK Riverain Primary School won the Most Active Participation Award for their highest students’ participation rate in the One-page Book Competition.

The theme of Read & Share in 2016-17 is children’s poetry, with new events such as One World‧One Story and Chit-chat in 60 Minutes encouraging students to learn more about children’s poems and write their own.  Schools are welcome to join Read & Share for free.
