Graham’s visit to Guangzhou
I enjoyed an excellent visit to Guangzhou to deliver a pilot programme of interpersonal skills training for teachers at the ZWIE group of school schools. The visit was organised Betsy Ng of Prep4 Hong Kong in conjunction with ZWIE principal Dr Wei. Betsy was ably assisted by Anson Lo and supported by Lily Zhang.
The trial workshops were attended by teachers from Guangzhou Foreign Language Primary School attached to Sun Yat-Sen University, ZWIE’s Guangzhou Huangpu Modern Olympic Training Centre, ZWIE’s Guangzhou Foreign Language Secondary School attached to Sun Yat-Sen University, and ZWIE’s Huangpu Experimental Primary School attached to Sun Yat-Sen University.
The workshop training consisted of a programme of confidence building and interpersonal skills activities ranging from classroom games and learning styles to Ppt presentations, by way of poetry, drama and mask work, voice work and body language. It was a busy and productive week for all concerned and feedback from the teachers has been excellent.
