New harbourfront space opens

The Development Bureau announced that the Pierside Precinct near Wan Chai Ferry Pier further opened today, providing a nostalgic harbourfront leisure space with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour for the public.   Being the 12th harbourfront leisure space that opened since October last year, the newly opened area is located to the east of the ferry pier on a harbour site reclaimed for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass.   The bureau said under the incremental approach, a 180-metre-long promenade of the precinct opened earlier in March, followed by the opening of a further 80m in October.   With an area of about 4,600 sq m, the newly opened part has almost doubled the precinct's original space.   In contrast to the colourful cartoon style adopted at other harbourfront sites opened earlier in Western District and Wan Chai, the precinct mainly comprises simple fair-faced concrete and wooden structures.   It features a stylish touch with its clear and rectiline

More in-person classes to be held

(To watch the full press conference with sign language interpretation, click here.)   The Government said it plans to allow schools to conduct more face-to-face classes on a half-day basis after the Lunar New Year holiday.   Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung made the announcement at a press conference this afternoon.   He noted the Education Bureau announced last month that primary and secondary schools were allowed to arrange for a small number of students to return for classes or examinations amid the suspension of face-to-face classes.   Such arrangements have been running smoothly, and no large COVID-19 outbreak has been detected at schools in the past month.   The Government will therefore examine allowing more face-to-face classes at schools on a half-day basis after the Lunar New Year holiday at around the end of February, Mr Yeung added.   He said: "For the resumption of face-to-face lessons, I have yet to work with the principals to work out the details. We are aiming to have some discussion within this week.   "Hopefully, we can make some announcements by the end of this week so that we will know the detailed arrangement of what classes will resume face-to-face lessons earlier, or if we can do a bit more than usual."
