About the Students & School 

The Salvation Army William Booth Secondary School is a CMI School that aims to provide an inclusive and rich English learning environment for Chinese-speaking students who are mostly from low-income families. The school would like to expose their students to an English environment and give them the opportunity to communicate with native English speakers.
