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 virus case in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the Tsuen Wan restricted area finished today with no confirmed COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration last night, requiring people living at Block 1, Bo Shek Mansion, 328 Sha Tsui Road to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing. As at midnight, around 570 residents were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, about 275 people’s test records were checked. One person was found to have not undergone mandatory testing and was issued with a compulsory testing order.   Government staff also visited about 200 households in the restricted area, of which eight did not answer the door. Follow-up measures will be taken.   According to the compulsory testing notice, people who stayed in the building for more than two hours from July 30 to August 22 must undergo compulsory testing by August 24 even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect.
