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.

Railway settlement exceeds limit

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7. 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
