Online Workshops

Our online Christmas workshops are conducted in LIVE sessions so our teachers can provide support and guidance to every student, and students can collaborate and discuss ideas with peers. Depending on the age group, students complete the writing by handwriting on printed worksheets or typing on Google Docs where teachers can monitor and give immediate feedback.

The creative writing and publishing workshops for age 6-12 will run as a series of 4-5 group sessions, followed by a one-on-one session for each student so teachers can provide additional support on the revision process. In the schedule below, the courses marked with an asterisk (*) will have a 30-min one-on-one session to be scheduled after the group sessions.

The Christmas Storyland online workshop for ages 5-6 will be different in each week, so students can join for a single week or both weeks.

PLEASE NOTE: Course fees for online publishing workshops are bundled to already include the one-on-one session, which will be scheduled individually with your child’s teacher.

FAQ: How is the book published from the holiday workshops different from the term-long workshop?

The stories from our holiday publishing workshops are published in staple-bound chapbooks for sharing with the student authors and their families. The stories from the term-long workshops, however, are published in professionally designed and bound paperbacks with ISBN numbers. They go into circulation at the Hong Kong Public Libraries and are sold to benefit ECP charity partners.

**IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT ENROLMENT:

  1. We have a new booking system that allows for instant booking and payment via the EngagePlus App or our booking site. If you are a new family, please set up a PARENT account.
  2. If you have enrolled for ECP classes from Jan to December, we have already created an account for you. Please login with the email you used to enrol and click “Forgot password” to access your account and reset your password.
  3. We reserve the right to cancel workshops that do not meet the minimum enrolment before the course start date. Fees paid for cancelled classes will be refunded or can be applied to other courses.

Fall 2020: August 31-December 14

During the school term, we offer classes on a weekly basis. Given the current situation, all of our classes will begin online, with the class size limited to 6 students. We know that many parents prefer in-person classes and have designed the schedule with the hopes of resuming in-person classes when it is safe to do so.

At the same time, we have had very positive feedback from students and parents who have experienced our online workshops over the past eight months and appreciate the convenience and opportunity to have classmates from beyond Hong Kong. So, we will be offering select workshops that will run completely online.

ONE-ON-ONE SESSIONS: From our experience, students in our online creative writing and publishing workshops benefit greatly from 30-min one-on-one sessions with the teacher to support the revising process because of the shortened class time online. These one-on-one sessions will be scheduled individually with the teacher and charged separately ($350/class). The frequency of the one-on-one sessions will vary based on age:

  • Ages 6-8: 5 per term (once every 2-3 weeks)
  • Ages 8-10: 4 per term (once every 3 weeks)
  • Ages 10+: 3 per term (once every 4 weeks)

The one-on-one sessions will continue for as long as the course runs online. For classes that resume the in-person format of 1.5 hours/class, the teacher will conference with the students within the longer group sessions.
