Chinese Reading Carnival


The aim of the activity is to cultivate pupils’ interest and habit in reading Chinese books, through exposure to well-known Chinese children’s books and engagement in interesting language games that are designed based on these books.


This is a half-day event that is held in July. It is organised by the Gifted Education Branch for all Primary 4 mixed Chinese Language class pupils (GEP and their non-GEP classmates) in the GEP schools. Pupils are encouraged to read a series of children’s Chinese books in the first half of the year. The Carnival is a platform for pupils to share their understanding of the books and to display their creativity through designing and playing games that are based on these books.

Target Group

All Primary 4 GEP pupils, as well as their classmates in the mixed classes.
