Kat O Heritage Trail opens

The Agriculture, Fisheries & Conservation Department today opened the Kat O Heritage Trail in collaboration with Kat O village to mark the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark.   In addition to further promoting Kat O’s history, culture and intangible cultural heritage, the trail offers an in-depth travel experience to visitors.   Located in northeastern New Territories waters, Kat O is a harmonious community built by fishermen and Hakkas hand in hand.   The trail, with 27 interpretation panels along the route, was planned on the existing footpath and connects many important historical and cultural relics.   Visitors may explore an old Chinese restaurant and grocery store on Kat O Main Street, walk past old banyan trees where villagers used to take a rest or stop by a former pig farm and outdoor cinema.   A more in-depth understanding of Kat O’s long history is warranted by a visit to Kat O Tin Hau Temple and Sai O Hexagonal Well.   Visitors may also enjo

CE visits school's citizenship class

Chief Executive Carrie Lam visited Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Lui Yun Choy Memorial College in Tseung Kwan O today to join a citizenship and social development class and hear student views on the upcoming Policy Address.   Mrs Lam was also briefed on the school's science, technology, engineering and mathematics education curriculum and viewed a display of teaching materials including robotics, augmented reality and 3D printing technology.   She then took part in a Secondary 4 students’ citizenship and social development class where she learnt more about the teaching of the first theme under the subject, Hong Kong under “one country, two systems” and the position and duties of the Chief Executive.   At the teacher’s invitation, Mrs Lam explained to the class Hong Kong’s unique advantages under “one country, two systems”, the organic integration of the central authorities’ overall jurisdiction over the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the city’s high degree of autonomy, as well as the constitutional arrangement of the dual responsibility of the Chief Executive to both the Central People’s Government and the Hong Kong SAR.   Mrs Lam said: “The citizenship and social development subject, which has become a senior secondary core subject this year, allows students to build a broad knowledge base and cultivate positive values by learning issues about Hong Kong, the country and the contemporary world, and to become a new generation with a sense of social responsibility and national identity, an affection for Hong Kong and an international perspective.   “The Education Bureau will continue to provide relevant support to schools.”   The Chief Executive then attended a session with students on the upcoming Policy Address. Assembling 60 of the school's senior secondary students and about 1,000 students from 17 other Tung Wah Group of Hospitals schools through video conferencing, more than 10 pupils voiced their views in the hour-long exchange which covered education, youth development, environmental protection and more. The students also discussed heritage conservation and development of art and culture.   To be delivered on October 6, the Policy Address will map out Hong Kong’s future developments and integration into the national development with a long-term vision, Mrs Lam noted. It will also offer proposals on land and housing as well as long-term infrastructure development.
