Recruitment of the “School Anchor ” Program
The Hong Kong Speech and Swallowing Therapy Centre and Green Monday have organized the fifth “ School Anchor” program.
The program is sponsored by the Bank of China Hong Kong Charitable Foundation and supported by Hong Kong Feel.
Besides the traditional training of an anchor’s self confidence, voice, news reporting skills and production techniques, this year’s program has added the theme of environmental protection, beginning with the knowledge of healthy eating with the emphasis of carbon reduction.
The program composes of five parts: i) introduction with sharing from professionals; ii) a visit to a radio station with a live weather broadcast and learning knowledge of broadcast production; iii) language training with correction of wrong pronunciation, script writing and interview techniques; iv) the visit of environmental protection facilities and immediate reporting; v) the production of a specified program for competition.
An opening ceremony has been held by the organizers recently, where professionals from different sectors were invited to have a sharing with participants, in order to have a better understanding of a anchor’s job duties. Participants were also assigned to do a 3-minute presentation in front of the guests.
