Summer English

Summer English is organised by Hong Kong Education City and Scholastic. It aims at encouraging primary school students to read and learn English in the Summer Holidays through interesting topics and a variety of text types, such as comics, stories, diaries, etc.

Students and schools with excellent performances will be rewarded.

About Scholastic

Since the year 1920, Scholastic has introduced children to stories and information that captivate their imaginations and help them understand themselves and their world.

Every time we read a book we change. We feel more deeply and think more boldly. It makes us think more, be more and do more.

Reading is transformational. Read on.
