41 schools commended for meritorious green projects
***************************************************

Forty-one primary and secondary schools and kindergartens were commended at the prize presentation ceremony of the Greening School Project Award today (April 16) in recognition of their meritorious green school projects and their contribution to the Green Hong Kong Campaign.

In order to promote green consciousness among students, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department's Greening School Subsidy Scheme provides cash subsidies to schools to plant more trees and flowers in campuses and to organise more green activities, through which students' interests and knowledge of greening can be enhanced. Awards are given to meritorious green school projects.

The Greening School Subsidy Scheme is well received as the number of participating schools has doubled since its introduction in 2000.

Speaking at the prize presentation ceremony today (April 16), a member of the Community Involvement Committee in Greening of Home Affairs Bureau, Mr Patrick Lau, said the scheme had been well received by teachers and students, with the number of participating schools increasing every year, rising from around 300 in the first year to some 700 this year.

"The green projects are of high standard. Both teachers and students are working very hard to make their schools' environment greener and more beautiful," he added.

Other officiating guests at the ceremony included the Principal Education Officer of Education and Manpower Bureau, Mr Leung Shiu-keung; and the Chief Leisure Manager (Green Campaign) of Leisure and Cultural Services Department, Ms Florence Tsui.
