- We are dropping new episodes every Friday with student hosts who will tackle a new theme every month
- Our first host is a Form Six pupil who has her own podcast about mental well-being – she will discuss how it feels to return to in-person classes for her last year of secondary school
Before the pandemic, we could hardly picture a life without school – how could we have known how precious it would become to head to the tuck shop for a snack break with friends?
Although our lives continue to be upended by the coronavirus pandemic, it has not stopped you, our readers, from voicing what matters to you. During the school suspension period, we offered a bite-sized podcast called Snack for the Soul, which featured Hong Kong students discussing how they coped with those difficult times.
Because of the positive feedback we received, we are continuing this podcast in the new school term. We will feature a different Hong Kong student every episode and will tackle a new theme every month.
This month’s episodes are about going back to school through the eyes of someone who will soon be taking the university entrance exams, a pupil who is just starting secondary school, a first-year university student, and a teen studying overseas in Canada.
Dropping on Friday at 3pm, the first episode is hosted by a Form Six student named Ling, who started a mental well-being podcast during the pandemic, called Leave Your Worries.
The teen podcaster will share her feelings about resuming in-person classes, the challenges of preparing for the university entrance exam and her desire to make the most of her final year in secondary school.
With Snack for the Soul, we encourage you to give your eyes a break from the screens for a few minutes and tune in to hear the stories, reflections and opinions of our hosts.
