Students win history awards

Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung today officiated at the Junior Secondary History e-Reading Award Scheme 2021 prize presentation ceremony and presented prizes to awarded students.   Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Yeung said that the bureau has been striving to enhance history education in recent years, including the implementation of Chinese History as an independent compulsory subject at the junior secondary level, the implementation of revised Chinese History and History curricula at the junior secondary level, the organisation of a variety of professional development programmes for teachers, as well as the production and introduction of diversified learning and teaching resources so as to provide assistance for teachers to promote the learning and teaching of History.   He encouraged students to understand good words and deeds of historical figures and to explore different facets of historical events through reading.   Mr Yeung added that students can learn from historical figures’ moral values and characters so as to become citizens with a sense of national responsibility, an affection for Hong Kong as well as an international perspective.   Jointly organised by the Education Bureau and the University of Hong Kong’s e-Learning Development Laboratory, the award scheme has been launched in three consecutive years.   By using the interactive e-platform, students can read articles on different themes and historical periods and complete the questions entailed.   More than 13,500 students from 143 secondary schools participated in the scheme this year, which is the highest in the three years.   A total of 67 students were awarded the Certificate of Merit while 10 student teams, with a total number of 28 students, were awarded the Certificate of Creativity.   The list of awardees will be uploaded onto the bureau’s website later.
