Salutes to former students

This group of former students has a special place in my heart. They were the first class of fulltime PGDE Primary English-major students at CUHK. Although I had had prior experience in training primary English teachers at a former college of education, this was still a highly memorable year, as I had to experiment with course content, and teaching methodology. As the first cohort, they were of exceptional qualities ~ diligent, intelligent, motivated, mature, and self-disciplined. Because of that, I was able to sail through my first year of teaching on this programme easily.

Tonight at the 3-hour reunion dinner, I am delighted to see that over ten years of hard work on the frontline have not only strengthened their passion and devotion, but also built up their professional expertise and wisdom. It also warms the heart to see that they are still such a cohesive group after all these years.
