Learning Assistance

1.

Case Conference with resource teachers of Ebenezer School

Before the beginning of this academic year, the IEC had a discussion about certain SEN students with the resource teachers of Ebenezer School and Lutheran School for the Deaf in August 2021. Those teachers gave the IEC members essential information as to the handling of those cases and made a number of valuable suggestions for the school.

2.

School-based Training Sessions for Teachers

 

The IEC organised school-based training sessions on Integrated Education for teachers who were directly involved in the teaching of the SEN students in early September 2021. The special educational needs of each student and the related pedagogy were made known to the teachers. Most teachers found the suggestions made by the IEC to be practical.

 

3.

Individual Education Planning Conferences

The IEC held 14 Individual Education Planning Conferences for 8 SEN students in the last academic year to review their academic progress, reduce their examination pressure and improve their social skills at school. Ideas were fruitfully exchanged among the participants of the conferences.

 

4.

Class Helpers

The class helpers took turns to help the SEN students during the lessons.

 

5.

Examination Arrangements

For the visually-impaired students, attention deficit students, autistic students or students with special learning difficulties or with metal health problems, their examination time was extended. For the students with hearing impairments, their marks in the listening and speaking papers were adjusted so as to encourage them to take the examinations.

 

 

Social Integration

1.

The Integrated Education Ambassadors

The IEC recruited 19 IE ambassadors (IEA) to assist the SEN students in adapting to school life. They are primarily concerned with the promotion of a caring school culture. This year they assisted the committee to hold “metal health week” in the school. Through playing some booth games, we hoped students would pay attention to their own mental health. IEAs also wrote some encouraging words on the package of chocolates and sent those cheering chocolates to their schoolmates so as to cheer them up.

 

2.

Stress relief activities for students

The committee has collaborated with the school social workers and RE teachers to provide students with various activities in each short day (day 7) including board games, Chinese billiard, boardgames, darts and pastel Nagomi art. All students are welcome to participate and these activities were very popular among students. By participating in different activities, we hope that students can relieve their learning pressure during the pandemic.
