The Opening Ceremony of the F.1 Mentoring Programme was held during the OLE Day on 17 September 2021. Forty-two F.3 mentors and all F.1 students gathered at the gymnasium to meet each other for the first time. After playing ice-breaking games, they shared their experiences about school life and studies in small groups in different classrooms. Moreover, they introduced their favourite books or magazines.
After the opening ceremony and first meeting with mentees, F.3 mentors attended a training workshop conducted by the School Social Workers on how to take care of the F.1 students.
The mentors will later organize meetings to get to know more about their mentees and give advice to help them solve their problems, especially about academic studies, making friends and participating in extra-curricular activities.
It is hoped that this mentoring programme will help F.1 students adapt to the secondary school life quickly with the guidance and support of their mentors.
