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

Exam venue measures announced

The Education Bureau today announced that schools providing examination venues for this year’s Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (DSE) should suspend face-to-face classes from April 26 to 30 and May 3.   Schools may decide whether to arrange online teaching for other classes based on their school-based circumstances.   Given the volatile situation of the COVID-19 epidemic, the bureau and the Examinations & Assessment Authority have been communicating closely with the Centre for Health Protection and the education sector to ensure the DSE can start on April 23 under safe circumstances.   The new measure aims to release more classrooms for exam venues and more teachers for assuming the invigilator role, as well as complement the need to step up precautionary measures against COVID-19.   The authority will issue a letter to inform schools of the above arrangements.
