Support to Parents and Students

Support to Parents and Students

1. School Social Worker

In order to take care of the physical and mental health of both parents and children, a school-based social worker service is provided every Thursday and Friday. Services including child-oriented workshops, play therapy and art therapy to meet children’s developmental and learning needs. Parent seminars and parent-child workshops are held regulary on Saturdays to understand the needs of different families and to promote positive parent-child relationships.

  1. On-site Pre-school Rehabilitation Services (OPRS)

The Social Welfare Department (SWD) has implemented the On-site Pre-school Rehabilitation Services. Heep Hong Society provides on-site services for our students with special educational needs (SEN) to access the necessary training early in the “golden training period”. The OPRS professional teams comprises social workers, speech therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, educational psychologists and special education child care workers. They provide on-site rehabilitation services and training to children with special needs, supplemented with training at centres with rehabilitation facilities. On the other hand, they give professional advice to kindergarten teachers and child care workers to assist them in taking care of children with SEN.

  1. Education services for non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students

NCS students belong to ethnic minorities. They need different supports, including facilitating their early adaptation to the local education system and mastery of the Chinese language. Through interactive classroom activities and role play, NCS students can enhance their learning interest in Chinese.

At the same time, individualized learning plans will be formulated for NCS students to continue their language learning.
