This was the eighth year of our programme. 230 students from 20 local primary and secondary schools had joined this programme. During the past 5 months, they were engaged in project work, attending talks, workshops and study visits. These students had come to share the result of their hard work on the Presentation & Assessment Day. This year, the winning team in the Primary sector is the Education University of Hong Kong Jockey Club Primary School while the ESD Grand Awards go to Chiu Lut Sau Memorial Secondary School, St. Paul’s Convent School and the Chinese Foundation Secondary School.
It was a year of rewarding work for the students. The next programme will start anew in the following academic year, details to be provided in June and enrollment to start in September.
Thank you all for your generosity and support to our programme!
