I am delighted to announce that Ms Annie Huang will be continuing as our third Chinese Educational Assistant next academic year. Ms Huang joined us in November and was initially employed by the school until June of 2012. However the model of additional support has been very successful and the children we talked to shared how a third Chinese EA has helped and supported them to learn Chinese. They talked about the benefits of being exposed to role play and how they enjoyed the small group contact that they have had.
Ms Huang will remain with us for the 2012-2013 academic year meaning that we continue to have 2 full time Chinese teachers as well as 3 full time Chinese Educational Assistants. My thanks to the school council for appreciating the need to continue this support and for fully supporting this initiative to further strengthen our Chinese provision at Peak School.
