Great time at English camp

TRULY marvellous! That was the verdict handed out by many of the students who attended the English Language Camp for Form Three students at Kolej Disted Stamford recently. 

The camp, organised by the college in cooperation with the Guang Ming Daily, was well attended by over 30 participants. 

SMJK (P) China Pulau Pinang’s Cynthia Ng Yi Xyann waxed lyrical about the benefits of the camp. 

“Rather than sitting down at home and being bored during the school holidays, I used the time gainfully to improve my English at the camp,” she said.  

“The activities were educational, interesting and competitive. I found it challenging to participate in all the activities as my team mates were bright and we competed hard to come out with good ideas,” she added. “In particular, I enjoyed the Newspaper in Education (NIE) session conducted by Josephine Chan. My team did a project on the features of handphones and we had fun drawing and painting posters to show the features.  

“I also made many new friends from other schools. I intend to keep in touch with them by mobile phone and e-mail,” she said. 

Held over four days, the camp aimed to help students enhance their command of English by engaging in lively discussions and group activities, said the college’s School of English and General Studies head Min Chor Caunter, who was also the camp coordinator.  

Penang SMJK Chung Ling’s Lee Yong Kyan, also spoke glowingly of his experiences.  

“The camp was a meaningful way for me to spend my school holidays. It encouraged me to learn and to speak English, especially while playing language games,” he said. 

“I had an exciting time creating `Strike’ – my version of the Incredibles superhero – and making an oral presentation on the cartoon character. 

“I am now also better informed about computers, food preparation and the role of chefs in the hospitality industry. The camp was really fun, with friendly and lively participants and lecturers,” he added.
