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.  

Govt respects HKU decision

Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung said today the Government respects the University of Hong Kong’s decision to deny all students who attended the HKU Students’ Union Council meeting on July 7 from accessing the campus.   At a media session after attending radio programmes, Mr Yeung made the response when he was asked if it is fair to those council members when they have not yet been arrested nor convicted.   He said: “The University of Hong Kong made the decision due to risk assessment and the control of exposure to unnecessary risks. It made the decision based on its internal procedures and own assessment. So we will respect its decision based on that.”
