Pui Ching becomes first THRASS accredited school in Greater China2021-12-16
On December 14, Pui Ching was awarded the plaque for "THRASS Accredited School in Greater China". Dr. Kou Kam Fai, Principal of Pui Ching Middle School, and Dr. Fu Mei Kei, Executive Director of the Center for International Cooperation in Education (CICE Macao), presided over the unveiling ceremony.
Principal Kou expressed that being awarded the THRASS certification is an affirmation of the school's education achievements in English, and this is an outcome of the school's continual use of THRASS teaching tools for many years to improve students' English spelling, reading and writing skills. The THRASS Institute has had 25 years of practical experience since its establishment. The spelling, reading and writing skills developed by THRASS have been adopted in Europe, Australia, America, Asia, and Africa. It is a simple, fast and effective method for learning English pronunciation which is suitable for students who are not native speakers of English. After obtaining the THRASS certification in Greater China, we will be sharing THRASS teaching resources with teachers in the Greater China Region, and we will be organizing student events like the THRASS spelling competition. Through exchanges and cooperation with THRASS certified schools, we will be providing a platform for teacher-student interactions so that more Chinese students can experience the fun of learning English.
Pui Ching has introduced THRASS spelling, reading and writing learning tools into its teaching since 2011. From 2011 to 2015, the study and data analysis of pupils' spelling, reading and writing ability in our school showed that after students used the THRASS tools, their spelling accuracy improved significantly; students showed more confidence in reading and increased interest in reading; applying spelling, reading and writing skills to their writing reduced their stress in English learning. In addition, in order to strengthen student interest in learning THRASS spelling, reading and writing, Pui Ching organizes THRASS Spelling Bee competitions every year to provide students with a platform to showcase their learning outcomes.
