Our NET ~ Mr. Murphy


It is the start of the new 2022-2023 academic year and my tenth year here at S.K.H. St. James’ Primary School. I hope everyone is looking forward to starting the new academic year and getting back into the classrooms. I will be teaching Primary 1 to 3 once again. Both the classroom English teacher and I hope to help the students improve their English language development in the areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Try your  best and enjoy the NET lessons!                                                                                                                                 

I want to remind the students and parents of S.K.H. St. James’ Primary School about learning English:

1. It’s hard work.

2. The students will need help.

3. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.

4. Be persistent and consistent.

5. Keep motivating yourself. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone in the classroom! Smile
