Ju Ching Chu Secondary School (Yuen Long)

Plastic surgery was the topic as the school conducted a forum for Form Seven students on November 26.

The discussion allowed students to explore the issue from different perspectives.

It also gave A-level students a chance to improve their English listening, writing and presentation skills.

After a brainstorming session, four students were chosen to represent each Form Seven class to argue the pros and cons of having plastic surgery.

The students played the roles of a disfigured victim, a plastic surgeon, an artist and a perfectionist who uses cosmetic surgery.

On the opposing side, students played the roles of a plastic surgery patient, a naturalist, a preacher and a husband who is against plastic surgery.

All eight speakers came up with very interesting points, keeping the audience intrigued.

At the end of the forum, the audience was asked to voice their opinions on the issue.

Students were also asked to write an argumentative essay on the topic. English became a lot more interesting, thanks to the forum.
