II. External English Activities

RTHK - The Sunday Smile

Four English ambassadors - Vanessa Ngai (P.4C), Shelby Lo (P.5C), Cadence Cheung (P. 5C) and Anthea Yu (P. 6C) participated in the English radio programme “The Sunday Smile” on 11th January, 2017.



We were looking forward to having a nice recording. Mr. Thomas came out and invited us into the recording room. It was small and old but we were excited. We only needed two takes to get it right. Mr. Thomas took photos with us. We were overjoyed. I hope we can go to RTHK again.

Vanessa Ngai 4C

 

I was honored to have a chance to participate in ‘The Sunday Smile’ radio programme with some other English Ambassadors. It was a very good experience for me because I learned how to record a radio programme and had a chance to visit RTHK.

Shelby Lo 5C

 

When I arrived at RTHK, I felt excited. I went there by car with Shelby. By the time we arrived, Anthea and Vanessa were waiting for us. We waited for about 15 minutes in the lobby before we went inside the recording room. The room was smaller than I expected. After we finished the recording, Mr. Thomas invited us to take a group photo, so we borrowed a spaceship board and took photos with it. I hope I can visit RTHK very soon in the future.

Cadence Cheung 5C

This was an unforgettable experience. First of all, I would like to thank Miss J.Cheung and Miss Sally for giving us this chance. I am very proud of myself because I could represent our school to go to RTHK for a radio broadcast recording. This was my first time to go to RTHK Broadcasting House. We presented a drama written by ourselves in the recording. The programme host, Mr. Thomas Latter, is very kind. He let us have two takes for the recording. We had some minor mistakes, but he said he would fix those. After recording, we took many photos. They will be shown on the RTHK’s website later. This recording is very meaningful to me.
