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.  

Group's non-compliance condemned

Police’s National Security Department today severely condemned an organisation’s open expression that it would refuse to provide the data requested pursuant to the National Security Law.   Under Schedule 5 of the Implementation Rules for Article 43 of the National Security Law, Police issued notices in writing to various organisations on August 25 asking for information to be provided no later than September 7. While certain organisations had complied with the instruction, some others requested an extension.   It also noticed an organisation openly repeated that it would not follow the legal requirement and reject the information request.   The force reiterated that people or organisations failing to provide information in time will be liable to a fine of $100,000 and imprisonment for half a year.   Follow-up action will be taken in accordance with the law with respect to incompliance, Police added.
