Twice as many schools join in 'green' scheme
*********************************************


The number of schools participating in the Green School Project Scheme has doubled since its introduction in 2000.

The competition, organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), aims to enhance environmental consciousness among students by providing cash subsidies to schools to plant more trees and flowers in their grounds and to organise more green activities. Awards are given to outstanding schools.

Speaking at the prize presentation ceremony today (February 14), a member of the Community Involvement Committee on Greening, Dr Ng Cho-nam, said the scheme had been well received by teachers and students, with the number of participating schools rising from 316 in 2000 to 746 in 2003.

"It is particularly impressive to find that the green school projects are of such a high standard. Both teachers and students are working very hard to make their schools' environment greener and more beautiful," he added.

Forty-five primary and secondary schools and kindergartens were awarded prizes today in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the Green Hong Kong Campaign.

Other officiating guests at the ceremony included the Education and Manpower Bureau's Principal Education Officer (Kowloon), Mrs Lau Lau Wing-mun, and the Chief Leisure Manager (Green Campaign) of LCSD, Mr Cheung Yiu-fai.
