Bi-cultural Chinese Elective Programme (BiCEP)
BiCEP is a SHHK signature programme to develop a core group of effectively bilingual students in the 5 SHHK Primary Schools. Launched in 2017, the BiCEP curriculum is designed by a team of experienced Chinese Language teachers, in consultation with Chinese Language and culture experts.
Students are invited to join the 3-year programme at the end of Primary 3. The 3-year curriculum allow students to explore Chinese Literature and Culture, learn Translation and Oratorical skills, in the process discover their passion and interest in Chinese language and culture.
BICEP Language and Cultural Camp
A signature event of the programme is the BICEP Language and Cultural Camp. Primary 4 BiCEP students receive training in oratorical skills as part of the BiCEP curriculum, before joining their peers from the other 4 SHHK affiliated primary schools at the BICEP Language and Cultural Camp.
NC Ambassadors Programme
To promote student leadership and hone their bilingual communication skills, BiCEP students are trained as Nan Chiau (NC) Ambassadors. NC Ambassadors are Nan Chiau’s heritage champions. They lead school tours, reminiscing the NC Story with students and visitors to the school.
Before the COVID pandemic, P5 BiCEP students joined their BiCEP peers in overseas immersion trips to Xi‘an, Fujian and Taipei. During the pandemic, they attended virtual immersion to Xi‘an, Fujian and Taipei and interacted virtually with Taipei students. The experiential journey provides a real-life connection with the BiCEP curriculum. Students also get to explore their chinese heritage, establish friendship with foreign students and broaden horizons
