English Builder a vital learning tool

I am writing in response to the letter 'English Builder has proved unhelpful' (Young Post, March 2). I totally disagree.

Students are required to spend at least half an hour on English Builder every day. But there is no conflict between these English exercises and homework.

Sweet taste of success

Our motto at Methodist College is: 'We are here to nurture: Modest, Caring and Knowledgeable Leaders of the New Era.'

In line with this ideal, students organised a series of activities and raised HK$13,003 for Operation Santa Claus (OSC). The annual charity campaign is co-founded by the South China Morning Post and RTHK.

Success is about not giving up

Too many people think life is unfair. But do they really think about why they do not do well?

I think success comes to people who don't give up, whatever the problems are.

Make your home green

Energy efficient homes are becoming more popular as people become more conscious of their lifestyles and the effect they have on the environment.

Treasure your loved ones

An inconceivable tragedy has occurred in my family. My dad went to hospital and had a general check-up recently.

The outcome was a terrible shock. The doctor said that my dad had a malignant tumour in his brain and he may die from it.

I didn't like my dad previously. I was always arguing with him.

Need for graduates with executive skills

Many students lack the executive skills necessary for their future.

Language and academic skills are taught well in Hong Kong, but administrative and decision-making abilities are overlooked by the government, schools and parents.

Put that money away for a rainy day

Many young people spend their money on luxury goods or expensive food. They seldom save their money for the future.

I highly encourage teenagers to develop the habit of saving because it benefits us greatly.

I have been saving since Primary Four. I have found that very helpful. I can buy my own books to enrich my knowledge. I can afford to join courses.

Children need family support

I am writing to express my opinion about the sexual abuse of children. It is sad to see an alarming rise in the number of suspected abusers aged under 19.
