2018 Eureka X UCCKE Summer Bridging Programme has just ended on 24th August! UCCKE's pre-S1 students learnt about their upcoming secondary school life. Over a course of 10 days, they met new friends, learnt about different topics in English, and prepared for a large-scale English musical theatre performance (The Prince of Egypt). Through this, every student was able to gain new knowledge and skills, but most importantly, they had fun.

For the success of the entire course and musical theatre, Eureka must thank all parties for their efforts and cooperation, including United Christian College (Kowloon East), the theatre director, Eureka’s Native English Teachers (NETs) andTeaching Assistant (TAs), and students. Special thanks to Dr Samuel Cheng, Mrs Hilary Lam and Ronald Fung.
