The Po Leung Kuk & Sprouts Foundation Primary Education Services Centre
Sprouts is one of the founding partners of the Po Leung Kuk & Sprouts Foundation Education Services Centre (the Primary ESC), which is located within the PLK Dr. Jimmy Wong Chi-Ho (Tin Sum Valley) Primary School. The Primary ESC was established in September 2011, and provides activity-based, after-school English classes to disadvantaged children in Tai Wai, New Territories.
The Primary ESC aims to help students improve their confidence and personal skills, both in their academic and personal lives, thus creating better opportunities for their futures. Native-language English teachers lead classes for 144 students, at a low student-instructor ratio of only 6:1.
Through fun and interactive weekly classes and storytelling, as well as a wide variety of monthly outings, the Primary ESC creates a stimulating learning environment for these students who otherwise are unable to afford any other extra-curricular activity. These classes and activities are provided free to the students, and are fully funded by the partners of the Primary ESC. Parental and day-school feedback have been positive, with parents and teachers expressing that the ESC students are exhibiting greater confidence in class and overall improved academic performance.
