HOGAsia goes to Shen Zhen!
In the past week, we took a trip down to Shen Zhen Dong Hai Campus and interacted with a cheerful and active group of students! We conducted trial classes there and brought the HOG spirit and the joy of drama to our students! Students got to break away from their usual academic learning styles and experienced learning through drama with us!
We started off with one of our many fun and simple introductory activities called "Bird in the sky!" The children stretched out their arms and chirped confidently in their own bird languages!
Ms Francine praised the children for their enthusiasm and encouraged them to try new techniques and be creative even in doing something as simple as flapping their "wings".
In our Mine to Music component, we listened to HOG's original song "How Clumsy!"
We tumbled, rolled on the floor and laughed at how clumsy we all were!
At Helen O 'Grady, we believe that children can be creative and critical thinkers! In our improvisation activity, "ants and the chocolate cake", we asked children how they think ants will be like when eating and approaching the cake! Children raised their hands and actively contributed their ideas!
We sure had fun in Shen Zhen and cannot wait to meet these young talented ones again!
