Partners in Mission (PIM) Programme
NDC is committed to encouraging and improving students' use of English. One strand of this goal is the PIM programme which started in 2008. Through this programme, well-educated native English speaking volunteers from Australia come to Hong Kong for 4-6 months to give students extra English Language practice. The PIM teachers assist students and classroom teachers in oral lessons and extra-curricular activities. They hold small group discussions with students and are involved in one-to-one conversations with students during recess and lunch time. They help the junior form students with pronunciation and reading aloud activities. Their presence in the school also promotes the natural use of English and increases the English speaking environment.
English Speaking Days and English Corners

Every Friday is our English Speaking Days. Different English activities are organised on the day so that students have opportunities to speak and use the target language. outside classroom. At the English Corners, students can talk to English Prefects and teachers in English and they can participate in some interesting English games. On the Movie Show days, students can watch fun English animations and movies with their schoolmates. During school open days, the English Society organises activities with themes like Halloween, Healthy Eating or Emoji World for both students and guests.
