38 teachers commended

Acting Chief Executive Paul Chan presented the Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence to 15 teachers at the Education Bureau Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre today.   Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung presented the Certificate of Merit to 23 teachers.   Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Chan expressed his heartfelt congratulations to the awarded teachers and thanked them for their dedicated efforts in education.   He encouraged teachers to actively participate in exchange activities with the Mainland and explained that through observation and exchanges, they could explore ways to improve teaching professionalism with outstanding senior teachers on the Mainland.   They can also use these opportunities to strengthen their understanding of the country’s politics, economy, society, history and culture, and then share their knowledge gained with colleagues and students, Mr Chan added.   There was a total of 121 and 104 nominations for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 awards.  

No COVID-19 case in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the Tuen Mun restricted area finished today with no confirmed COVID-19 case found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration last night, requiring people living at Block 6 of Handsome Court to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing. About 300 residents were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, around 90 people were checked and 10 were found to have breached the compulsory testing requirement.   Government staff visited about 100 households, of which six did not answer the door. The households concerned should contact the Government as soon as possible to arrange testing.   People who stayed in the building for more than two hours from June 30 to July 22 must undergo compulsory testing by July 24 even if they were not present in the restricted area when the declaration took effect.
