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

SZ port virus testing streamlined

The Government today announced that it has enhanced its rapid nucleic acid testing capacity and will launch an online booking arrangement within next week for the special nucleic acid testing service at Shenzhen Bay Port.   This will facilitate travellers’ trip planning and allow them to depart through Shenzhen Bay Control Point in an orderly manner, the Government said in a press release.   Under the upcoming booking arrangement, travellers must first obtain a quota at a Shenzhen quarantine hotel and then reserve a timeslot for the special nucleic acid test on the day of departure through an online booking system. They should arrive at the Shenzhen Bay Control Point for the special nucleic acid test as scheduled. Those without bookings will not be allowed to enter the control point for nucleic acid testing and immigration clearance.   The arrangement will help further shorten the processing time of the special nucleic acid test, reduce the waiting time and refine the crowd management at Shenzhen Bay Control Point, the Government said.   To avoid overcrowding, the Government urged travellers not to use the Shenzhen Bay Port during peak hours from 9am to noon. It will also announce the daily peak hours and expected waiting time at the port for travellers’ reference.   Before implementing online booking, the Government will consider adopting crowd control measures as appropriate if there is overcrowding, it added.

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
