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.

Mainland study scheme opens

The Mainland University Study Subsidy Scheme 2022/23 is open for applications from Hong Kong students until September 30, the Education Bureau announced today.   Covering 191 designated Mainland institutions, including 129 institutions participating in the 2022/23 Scheme for Admission of Hong Kong Students to Mainland Higher Education Institutions, the scheme benefits most local students with different financial needs who pursue undergraduate studies in the Mainland.   While the scheme is not subject to a quota, applicants may only receive either a means-tested subsidy or a non-means-tested subsidy in the same academic year.   The subsidy is granted on a yearly basis and the subsidised period covers the normal duration of the undergraduate programme pursued by the student concerned in the designated Mainland institution.   Eligible students may enrol online or by post. The application result is expected to be released by the first quarter of 2023.
