Book Distribution and Story Reading Day

On 24 July Unison organised Book Distribution and Story Reading Day for ethnic minority children who joined our online Chinese Enhancement Class and Online Tutoring Class. We did three 1-hour sessions where teachers and volunteers read Chinese story books and interacted with the children and parents in Cantonese. After the story reading session, Unison distributed the Chinese story books to the families and gave parents tips on how to support their children in reading the books. Each child got a chance to choose 3-5 books to take home. We are grateful to our book donor and to the volunteers to contribute to Unison's mission of ehancing Chinese language learning of ethnic minority children.

在七月廿四日,融樂會為中文輔導班及網上中文補習班的小學生舉辦了一個講故事活動。在三節各一小時的故事環節中, 五位義工與退休教師用廣東話為小朋友講講故事,和他們聊聊天。然後,我們向每個參與活動的家庭派發童書,並講述如何活用這些書本。希望這些圖書,能為他們帶來美好的親子時光吧!

On 21 July Unison teams provided in-person support to ethnic minority DSE students in 3 schools.

On 29 July Unison had a catchup with the tutors of the Online Tutoring Program in the form of a Tutors Sharing Meeting. The tutors shared their experiences and also the progress of the students in Chinese. With the increase in Chinese proficiency, we found the confidence level of the students has increased and they are more willing to use the language.

融樂會的社區計劃隊伍 Ment for Change,在整個七月的星期六,共舉辦了四次少數族裔學生輔導環節。每次都會以分組討論、小組遊戲形式,引領導師與學生相互認識,然後再將學生、導師兩兩分組,讓導師可以直接按學生需要給予指導、意見。至今,輔導已涵括了「學習技巧」、「設立目標」及「升學途徑」三大主題。

Unison Community Project - CEVC

In July Unison Community project- Community Engagement Voluntary Club (CEVC) organised local tours in the journey to unite local Chinese and local people from diverse races.

Such community projects are instrumental to build a bridge amongst communities and long-lasting friendships.
