Students triumph at int’l contests

Two teams of Hong Kong students have achieved excellent results at the 51st International Physics Olympiad and the 62nd International Mathematical Olympiad.   The International Physics Olympiad, organised by Vilnius, Lithuania, was held from July 17 to 24 with around 370 students from 76 countries or regions taking part. The Hong Kong team won three gold and two silver medals.   The gold medallists were Chan Tsz-chun from International Christian Quality Music Secondary & Primary School, Cheng Yat-long from Raimondi College and Lau Sze-chun from Diocesan Boys' School. While Choi Wai-ching from La Salle College and Leung Chun-fung from GT (Ellen Yeung) College won silver.   The International Physics Olympiad, hosted by St Petersburg, Russia, was held from July 14 to 24 with the participation of around 619 students from 107 countries or regions. The Hong Kong team won one gold, three silver and one bronze medal.   Chui Tsz-fung from Diocesan Boys' School won the gold medal while Chu Cheuk-hei from St Paul's Co-educational College, Harris Leung from Diocesan Boys' School and Timothy Yau from Ying Wa College scored the silver medals. The bronze medal went to Lai Wai-lok from St Paul's Co-educational College.   Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung congratulated the Hong Kong teams on their outstanding performance in the competitions.   “The remarkable results attained by the Hong Kong teams in the international competitions not only fully showcase the talents of students in physics and mathematics, but also demonstrate their problem-solving skills and high level of creativity in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).   “The Government has been striving to promote STEM education and to nurture diverse innovation and technology talents for Hong Kong. It is also important for students to seize the opportunities of Hong Kong's integration into national development and establish an international perspective, thereby maximising their potential.”   Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the contestants participated in the competitions under online monitoring and joined virtual activities.

The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
