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.  

3 imported COVID-19 cases identified

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating three additional imported COVID-19 cases involving patients who arrived from Israel, Japan and Qatar.   One of them, a 36-year-old woman, lives in Tung Shun Hing Building, 22 Chi Kiang Street in To Kwa Wan and received two doses of the BioNTech vaccine in June and July in Hong Kong.   She tested negative in Hong Kong on August 21 and travelled to Nigeria on August 22.
