SED visits Sha Tin District
Hong Kong (HKSAR) - The Secretary for Education, Mr Kevin Yeung, this afternoon (October 8) visited Sha Tin District, where he called at a primary school in Yiu On Estate, Ma On Shan, and met with members of the Sha Tin District Council.
Accompanied by the District Officer (Sha Tin), Miss Amy Chan, Mr Yeung first visited PLK Chong Kee Ting Primary School. He was briefed by school managers, the school head and teachers on the school's characteristics, including life-wide learning, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and art education.
While touring the school campus, he took the opportunity to learn more about students' learning outcomes, such as their innovative inventions, Chinese opera and unicycling performances. He also chatted with parents and students, and took part in video shooting for the Fun to Move@JC Project.
The school is one of the participants of the project.
Mr Yeung said that home-school co-operation is conducive to students' whole-person development. The Education Commission set up the Task Force on Home-school Co-operation and Parent Education last December for the purpose of reviewing the existing approach in promoting home-school co-operation and parent education, and formulating the direction and strategy for further developments.
He added that the Government would seek to put in place as early as possible the measures with extensive support of stakeholders, with a view to giving a boost to home-school co-operation and helping children grow up happily and healthily.
Mr Yeung then met with the Chairman of the Sha Tin District Council, Mr Ho Hau-cheung, and members to exchange views on education and other district matters.
