Testing compliance check completed

The Government today completed a joint enforcement operation on a compulsory testing notice for CentrePoint in Sheung Wan.   The enforcement action was conducted from around 7am to 10.30am by the Central & Western District Office together with Police, the Department of Health and the Auxiliary Medical Service.   About 90 people’s test records were checked during the operation. Among them, 20 people were found to have violated the compulsory testing notice.   Noting that the enforcement process may cause inconvenience to residents, the Government appealed for their understanding as the operation was conducted to stop the spread of COVID-19. http://dlvr.it/S4kC72

$150m in scholarships awarded

The Government Scholarship Fund (GSF) and the Self-financing Post-secondary Education Fund (SPEF) have handed out scholarships and awards to some 5,500 students in the 2020-21 academic year, totalling about $150 million.   About 460 students with special educational needs were given the Endeavour Merit Award and the Endeavour Scholarship under the two funds. In addition, the GSF has reserved about $40 million for the Talent Development Scholarship and the Reaching Out Award.   Congratulating the awardees, Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung encouraged them to pursue a diversified development and hoped that the scholarships and awards give them recognition for their outstanding performances.   Mr Yeung noted that while the pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges worldwide, it is exceptionally commendable many students have overcome the obstacles with significant achievements in various areas.   About 1,300 local students and 600 non-locals were presented scholarships and awards under the GSF. In terms of the SPEF, about 3,400 local and about 200 non-local students were scholarship and award recipients.
