Oxford Path Courses - Outstanding Students Awards 2017



The first of Oxford Path Courses began in 2007, and since its introduction, the Oxford University Press has improved the language proficiency of thousands of children in Hong Kong through its quality programmes.
 
A loving parent always wants what’s best for their children. For language education, many turn to us, as our courses are renowned for their success in improving children’s literacy. Solid language proficiency is often regarded as the foundation from which one builds a successful future upon. We want to make the journey to achieving English or Chinese language fluency even more rewarding.
 
We are proudly introducing the new Oxford Path Courses Outstanding Students Awards, a set of merits for our most distinguished and hardworking students. They not only recognise our best learners, reward them for their hard work and motivate them to continue pursuing literacy excellence; they also act as a year-end goal for aspiring students to work towards throughout the year.
 
The winners will be decided by a panel of judges comprising only of experienced education professionals. Each award will have its own judging criteria. Only the finest examples of each category will be bestowed the trophy for the title.
