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.  

Voucher re-registration centres set

Three new service centres will be set up starting tomorrow to accept resubmission of registrations for people who need to provide supplementary information or clarify incorrect information under the Consumption Voucher Scheme.   Operating until September 15, the centres are located at the General Post Office in Central, Wan Tau Tong Neighbourhood Community Centre in Tai Po and Leung King Community Centre in Tuen Mun.       Eligible registrants may resubmit their registrations with a copy of their Hong Kong identity card in person or by a trusted person at the Consumption Voucher Scheme Secretariat on 17/F, Pioneer Centre in Mongkok or any of the new service centres.     All four locations provide the same services during office hours from 9am to 6am, Monday to Saturday.   In general, people will receive an SMS notification on their registration result about one week after submission of registration.   Registrants with their eligibility confirmed will receive disbursement of the first $2,000 voucher on October 1.       The resubmission arrangement only applies to those who had submitted a registration during the scheme's registration period, ie July 4 to August 14, but whose registrations had not been further processed due to reasons such as inaccurate or incomplete information.   The arrangement is not applicable to those who were confirmed to be ineligible under the scheme or who had never submitted any registration during the registration period.       People can check their registration status via the 18 5000 hotline.
