SUMMER PROGRAM 暑期課程

2021 Middle School Summer Program

Dear Parents:

 

We have been overwhelmed with the unprecedented demand for our summer program for primary aged students. We greatly value the interest in our classes and thank you for your continued support.

 

We would like to take the opportunity to clarify a number of points in relation to feedback we have received from parents since registration began on 14 April.

 

The summer program is open to all:

CCE’s summer program is a four-week program open to students from different schools in Macau, aiming to allow students to improve their English comprehension and fluency through participating in different activities. The targeted students for the summer program are those entering Primary One to Primary Six across Macau, and we follow a first-registered, first-served basis when it comes to enrolment. No priority is given to admitting students from School of the Nations. Everyone is given an equal chance to join.

 

Lack of clarity about the start of registration:

This year, registration for the primary program opened on 14 April. The announcement of registration was made on our CCE website as well as the School of the Nations’ website and its Facebook page. We apologize to all those who did not feel that they got a fair chance to register because they were expecting the announcement to be made more widely, including on CCE’s WeChat moments. We also apologize to School of the Nations parents, who, although awaiting an announcement about the registration process did not receive any communication from school sources about the process of enrollment. We will learn from these mistakes for next year.

 

Our program has been well loved by parents and students over the years. As you can imagine, this year, due to the pandemic, we have received unprecedented demand for the program compared to previous years. Once registration was opened, we filled the 140 seats available in less than 3 hours—a record speed for filling our spots. We hope you can understand the difficulty in turning parents away due to limitations of space and resources, and we hope that in the future, as resources allow we will be able to expand the reach of our program. Thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times.

 

Parents who enrolled last year and received a full refund and were unable to register this year:

Due to the epidemic situation last year, the originally arranged summer program for Grade One Primary students could not go ahead as planned because of DSEDJ regulations. We were transparent about the reason for the cancellation and explained to parents that they would get a full refund. Because of the inconvenience caused to parents, we provided a voucher for those who would apply this year so that those who were able to enroll could receive a discount of 500 MOP. The voucher did not guarantee a place for the current 2021 summer program, and this was clearly stated on the Terms and Conditions on the voucher.  Nevertheless, we can understand the disappointment felt by parents who could not enroll this year because they were not aware of the registration date or were unable to admitted due to the sheer volume of applications.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your valuable comments. We will do our best to continue to serve you to the best of our ability.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read our comments,

Centre for Continuing Education, School of the Nations

親愛的家長:

 

對於本中心為小學生開設的暑期課程,登記人數之多是完全超出了我們的預期。我們非常重視對我們課程感興趣的家長,感謝您一直以來的支持。

 

我們想借此機會澄清自4月14日開始註冊以來從家長那裡收到的回饋意見。

 

暑期課程對所有人開放:

CCE的暑期課程為期四周,面向澳門不同學校的學生,課程旨在透過參與不同的活動,提高學生的英語理解能力和流利度。暑期班的目標學生是在澳門各校就讀小一至小六的學生,我們遵循先註冊先服務的原則。不優先錄取來自聯國學校的學生。每個人都有平等的機會加入。

 

關於註冊的開始時間和日期缺乏明確性:

今年4月14日,小學課程開始註冊。在我們的CCE網站以及聯國學校的網站和Facebook頁面上宣佈了註冊的消息。我們向所有覺得自己沒有得到公平的註冊機會的人道歉,因為他們原以為會有更廣泛的公告,包括在CCE的微信朋友圈。我們也向聯國學校的家長們道歉,他們雖然在等待關於註冊程式的通知,但沒有收到任何來自學校的關於註冊方面的溝通。明年我們將從這些錯誤中吸取教訓。

 

多年來,我們的暑期課程深受家長和學生的喜愛。你們可以想像,今年由於疫情,與前幾年相比我們收到了前所未有申請需求。一旦註冊開始,我們在不到3小時的時間裡就填滿了140個座位——這是一個創紀錄的速度。由於空間和資源的限制,我們希望您能理解對於拒絕家長我們感到十分困難。我們希望在未來,在資源允許的情況下,我們將能夠擴大這個暑期活動。感謝你們在這充滿挑戰的時刻的耐心和理解。

 

去年註冊並獲得全額退款但今年無法註冊的家長:

由於去年的疫情,原本安排的一年級學生暑期活動由於DSEDJ的規定不能如期進行。我們很清楚的交代了取消的原因,並向家長們解釋他們會得到全額退款。由於給家長帶來不便,我們為今年報名的家長提供代金券,使能報名的家長可以享受500澳門幣的優惠。代金券並不能保證當前的2021年夏季課程的名額,這一點在代金券的條款和條件中有明確的說明。儘管如此,我們十分理解那些因為不知道註冊日期或由於龐大的申請量而無法被錄取的家長們感到的失望。

 

我們再次為給您帶來的不便表示歉意,並感謝您的寶貴意見。我們將盡最大努力繼續為您服務。

 

感謝您花時間閱讀本次通知,


順祝
台安
聯國學校持續教育中心謹啟
