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.  

$8.5m set for Henan flood victims

The Government today approved two funding applications totalling $8.519 million for Plan International Hong Kong and Amity Foundation, Hong Kong to help flood victims in Henan Province.   The money will be used to provide flour, rice, cooking oil and quilts for around 62,800 victims.   The Government said the Disaster Relief Fund Advisory Committee hopes the grants will facilitate the provision of timely aid to the victims and help them restore normal living.   To ensure the money is used properly, the two relief agencies will submit evaluation reports and audited accounts on the use of the grants after the relief projects have been completed.
