Diocesan Girls’ Junior School

Teacher candidates will serve as student teachers with our experienced teachers as mentor teachers. They will have the chance to experience the life of a teacher in Hong Kong. They will also assist with any extra-curricular activities that occur during their time at DGJS and be given the opportunity to work in close partnership with other teachers of the same subjects.

There are currently two teachers who are eager to host teacher candidates. They mostly teach English, Science and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). One teacher has an early primary focus and one teacher teaches mostly upper primary students.
