    The Space Town Programme is an enhanced version of the PLP-R/W. The programme consists of lessons with the NET in the English Room and also GE lessons which take place in the classroom with the local English teacher. Different reading and writing skills are taught interactively in the lessons. Phonics strategies are also introduced in a systematic way throughout the programme.

  • P4-P6 Drama Programme
    NET conducts P4-P6 drama lessons with local English teachers throughout the year. Each class has two lessons every two cycles. The NET and the local teacher implement some drama activities in the lessons which provide opportunities for students to speak so as to improve their speaking skills. To prepare students for the year-end English drama shows, the NET also teaches drama skills through different activities like voice projection, facial expression and stage movement.

    My name is Daniel Yee. My mother is from America and my father is a first generation Chinese American. I spent the first couple years of my life in Hawaii before moving to California. I studied in Universities in California, United Kingdom and China. I have a strong desire to teach and learn about new cultures. I love to experience new cultures and explore new places. Hong Kong is number 20 to 28 of the countries I have been to! The first time I came to Hong Kong I fell in love with the excitement of such wonderful city and was amazed at how many outdoor activities that it has to offer. Some of my favourite things to do apart from travelling is reading, watching movies and listening to music. Some of the sports I enjoy are football, golf, running, snowboarding and surfing. I am looking forward to teaching you guys this year!

  • Native English-speaking Teacher (NET): Ms. Nisha
    Hello! I am Nisha Katta. I am an English Teacher from India. I have been teaching English in Hong Kong for the last eight years. I have diversified experience teaching at various Primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong. I got my bachelor in commerce degree from the University of Rajasthan in India. I started my teaching journey by teaching at Kindergartens in India and Bangkok. I got a certificate in Teaching English to speakers of other Languages(TESOL) and attained a few certificates for specialising in teaching young learners.

    I love and enjoy teaching young learners. I aim to maintain a high level of student learning and help them to achieve their maximum potential. I believe in learning new things every day from everyone and that is what I teach my students too. My ability to work in innovative ways makes it easier for learners and keeps them motivated to achieve our short-term aims and long-term goals.

    I am a spiritual person and believe in doing good to others which connects me more to teaching. As a teacher, I can help children become confident and skilled individuals by supporting them in their literacy (English language) skills and social development. My hobbies are cycling, reading, learning or practising new languages, painting and exploring new places.
