We are pleased to report that the English Workshop held at Vistana Hotel on Saturday 10th March, 2012, was a big success.
This was Horne Learning Services' first function and it was attended very well by 50 students over the course of the day.
We held three sessions, beginning at 9am, 1pm and 4pm, each lasting for two and a half hours, including English speaking activities, grammar exercises, spelling test, wordsearch and a treasure hunt.
Horne Learning Services would like to thank Vistana Hotel and its staff for the great service and help throughout the day, designing the function room and refreshing it after each session.
The children particularly enjoyed the treasure hunt near the end of the session. Here are pictures of the winners:

The winners found clues hidden around the function room, solved the English questions on each clue, re-arranged the answers to make a sentence, and followed the instruction in that sentence which led them to the treasure.

At 8pm after the English Workshops were finished, we held a Parent Teacher Meeting. It was great to explain to the parents how we teach their children English, and the schedule for each month. We also gave them an overview of the 5 Key Points for learning English. We received some extremely positive feedback from the parents and it was a highly productive meeting where we strengthened relationships of trust with the parents of our students.
Overall, it was a tiring but fantastic day. The next round of English Workshops are scheduled for Saturday 26th May, 2012.
