Special schools stage variety show

A variety show involving 62 special schools across the city was held today to showcase students’ diverse talent and celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region’s establishment.   The Education Bureau explained that the aim of the large-scale joint school event, titled “Variety Show of Special School Students - Let Your Love Shine 2022”, is to enhance the public’s understanding of special education in Hong Kong.   About 100 students joined the performances that included a dragon dance, fitness exercises, martial arts, a wheelchair dance and a piano trio. In addition, the music video of the theme song, Let Love Shine 2022, sung by students from the 62 schools, was played.   To enable those with hearing and visual impairments to enjoy the festivities, the show was webcast live and barrier-free with sign language interpretation and audio descriptions.   Addressing the ceremony, Secretary for Education Choi Yuk-lin said the Government supports schoo

Balanced approach to curbing virus

(To watch the full media session with sign language interpretation, click here.)   Chief Executive John Lee today said he has asked the Secretary for Health to review the current anti-epidemic measures, aiming to strike a balance between containing the virus spread and reducing the inconvenience to travellers.   Meeting the media this morning before chairing the first meeting of the new-term Executive Council, Mr Lee said the Secretary for Health is considering how the duration of quarantine should be handled.   “I am giving him time to look at the statistics so that he will formulate some options for me to consider.”   At the same time, the Government will strive to keep the COVID-19 pandemic under control and protect those who are more vulnerable to the virus, he noted.   “One of the important measures is to make good use of the polymerase chain reaction-based nucleic acid test so that we can be certain that we will be able to identify those who are infected early, separate them so that they will not be spreading the virus to other people.”

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
