Thus their role fulfilled theobjectives of the English Week.

Suggestions and Recommendation In order to make English Week more successfully in the future, the English panel would like to give some suggestions and recommendations. First, it is suggested that the duration of English week to be extended to two week. The English Week should be made into a yearly event under the English Language Panel so pupils talents and skills can be further polished and exhibited to the public. The English Language would also like to recommendation school administration to allow activities to be carried outside the formal school time table so that more pupils can watch all the activities at different time and place. School administration also must improve electrical equipment such as P.A system should be in workable condition throughout the event. Any short coming during this period prevented announcement which is supposed to be addressed to all could not be conveyed successfully. Moreover, English Language Panel would like ideas and support from all quarters ( staffs ) to enable the objectives of future events to succeed or achieved.

Conclusion It is the sincere belief of the English Panel that the programme English week benefitted all the students and exposed them to the importance as well as correct usage of English Language.
