Speak Up – Act Out! Improvised Drama Competition
Two S1 and two S2 students of the English Drama Team participated in the improvised drama competition (“2020/21 Speak Up – Act Out! On Air!”, 1-day category) held in March 2021 and got the First Prize. The competition was organized by the Native-speaking English Teacher (NET) Section, Curriculum Development Institute (CDI), Education Bureau.
The winners created a thoroughly enjoyable, high-quality piece of radio drama about a hacked robot. The sound effects they chose had definitely created excitement in the story, as well as creating different atmospheres.

In March 2021, the advisor and one junior form drama student were invited by the Native-speaking English Teacher (NET) Section, Curriculum Development Institute (CDI), Education Bureau to share their experience on the 1-day Improvised SO-AU! event. The topic was ‘Create, collaborate, innovate’.
In April 2021, the winners of “2020/21 Speak Up – Act Out! On Air!” (1-day category) Improvised Drama Competition and their advisor Ms. May Wong went to CUHK to visit Dr. Becky Cheung from the Quality School Improvement Project (QSIP). The members shared their experience of the drama competition and interviewed Dr Cheung about how they can improve their English skills. She advised them to start an ‘English Free Talk Club’. During the club meetings, they can talk about any topic they want in English. This can train their oral skills and improve their intonation.
