STFA Leung Kau Kui College On Ting Estate, Tuen Mun, New Territories THE Shun Tak Fraternal Association Leung Kau Kui College is busy preparing for its switch-over to an all-English secondary school in 1994. Experts from the colleges of education and universities will be invited to the school to give talks on the change. A trial scheme will be implemented in the junior forms next October and November to test the change and to ensure a smooth transition. Under the proposal of the Education Commission's Report No 4, all secondary schools will have to choose between English and Chinese for their medium of instruction by September 1994. Principal Mr Mak Siu-ming said the school was recommended by the Education Department to make the switch. At present, students are taught in both Chinese and English although the latter is the main medium of instruction. ''Mother tongue teaching is certainly good for students who can understand more easily without the barrier of language,'' said Mr Mak. ''However, we need to maintain our English standard in order to keep Hongkong as an international city. We have opted for English so as to fulfil a social obligation and a role expected of us.'' Mr Mak said students might find difficulty in adjusting to the all-English teaching but he believed they could overcome the challenge. The principal is a firm believer in fostering closer ties with pupils. He has been teaching Form 1 classes once a week since the school was founded in 1981. ''I teach them not because we can't find a teacher, but I want to get to know every student in school. ''The lessons help me get closer to them. I can remember the name of almost every pupil. Even if I forget some of the names, I recognise most of them. I think students like to be remembered by the principal when they meet. ''Some people may think this is a trivial matter, but I know the relationship will get closer when I put a name to every pupil.'' To provide an all-round education, the school offers many extra-curricular activities and encourages pupils to take part in inter-school competitions. The school was first in this year's career quiz organised by the Labour Department. All its 55 Form 7 graduates were admitted to tertiary institutions last year.
