First, it is suggested that the duration of English Week to be extended to two weeks next year. That will enable more activities to be implemented during the English Week. Second, the choice of activities must be variety to promote more participation of pupils. The English Language would also like to recommend the school administration to allow activities to be carried out outside the formal school time table so that more pupils can watch all the activities at different time

and place. The school administration must also take immediate action to repair and improve the quality of the school P.A system for a better quality of pupils’ presentation.
