This year Book Week came with an exciting lineup of activities to celebrate the wonders of literature and creativity.

Twelve participating teachers in the Teacher-Student Reading Buddy Scheme conducted captivating book talks in the library on Jan 22 and Jan 23. A total of twenty-four students signed up in the scheme. They received free copies of the teacher recommended books to read and engaged in book discussion with the teachers. 

李衍蒨, the only female forensic anthropologist in Hong Kong and the author of 《屍骨的餘音──法醫人類學家為逝者發聲》,was invited to talk to our students in the Book Week Assembly on Jan 22. The title of her talk is “What it is like to be a forensic anthropologist”. Students who have written the most reflective responses to the talk received autographed copies of the author’s book. 

There was also a Book Trailer Competition, through which students were encouraged to share their favorite books with the others in a creative way.
Winners of the Book Trailer Competition were presented with Book Coupons as prizes. The winning piece on Ian Fleming’s Goldfinger engages potential readers visually and emotionally, and compels them to explore the book further.

A few students, participants of 中環文學散步(二次創作), shared their fan writing experience in the Book Week Assembly on Jan 18.

Remember, reading opens up new worlds and possibilities. Let’s continue to celebrate the joy of reading and embrace the magic of books.
