Two-fold Increase in Green School Projects

******************************************



The total number of schools participated in the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD)'s Green School Projects Scheme has increased by more than two folds since its introduction in 2000.

Speaking at the prize presentation ceremony, the Assistant Director of Leisure and Cultural Services, Mr Eddy Yau said: " The Scheme has been well-received by teachers and students as the number of participating schools has risen from 316 in 2000 to 665 in 2002, a more than double increase in two years."

The "Green School Project Scheme" is one of the LCSD's major campaigns to promote greening amongst youths. Its objective is to enhance green consciousness and understanding among students by providing cash subsidies to schools to plant more trees and flowers in campuses and to organise more green activities. Outstanding projects are selected and commended through the "Green School Project Awards" Scheme.

Pleased to see the Scheme becoming more and more popular among schools, Mr Yau said:" It is particularly impressive to find the green school projects to be of very high standard. Both teachers and students are working very hard to make campus environment greener and more beautiful."

Fifty-four primary and secondary schools and kindergartens were awarded at the "2002 Green School Project Award" prize presentation ceremony today (February 15) in recognition of their outstanding green school projects and their contribution to the Green Hong Kong Campaign.

Mr Yau said that the LCSD endeavoured to build Hong Kong into a green metropolis not only by implementing large-scale planting and beautification schemes each year, but also by organising educational and community activities from time to time to promote green culture.

Other officiating guests at the prize presentation ceremony included Principal Assistant Secretary for Education and Manpower, Mr Ma Siu-leung and the Honorary President of the Institute of Horticulture, Hong Kong, Mr Stephen Lee Man-yick.
