The new HEC year has just begun! We want to welcome you to a new year of exciting events and building connections between ALTs and students. The HEC team has new and old members collaborating to bring amazing events to fellow Hokkadians. See who they are here.
What is HEC?
HEC is the Hokkaido English Challenge. Every year, HEC hosts a test facilitated by ALTs for their students. This test aims to allow ALTs to support their students and let the students flex their English skills in creative ways.
Top winning students are invited to an English camp. The HEC team designs an immersive English space for students to utilise their skills. During the year, HEC also hosts other events which aim to be fun and build connections within the Hokkaido community.
Camp is coming back! Preparations are well underway. We are planning a safe and immersive English camp for the 1st year Junior High and High School students of Hokkaido. HEC hasn’t been able to host a camp for a few years, so we are excited and optimistic about this coming year.
HEC is also chasing interest in camp volunteers. Many roles and opportunities are available. To learn more or sign up please head here.
Starting the year, we will have a killer Among Us Tournament, Yoga Flow with Megan, and a spooooky Halloween Raffle. There are more details to come, so please keep updated on our news page, instagram or facebook.
