Schools' green efforts commended

Thirty-six secondary schools, primary schools and kindergartens were commended at the Greening School Project Award prize presentation ceremony today in recognition of their meritorious green school projects and contributions to environmental greening.

The award was organised under the Leisure & Cultural Services Department’s Greening School Subsidy Scheme.

Speaking at the prize-presentation ceremony, Chief Leisure Manager (Green Campaign) Wendy Or said teachers and students had embraced the scheme since its launch in 2000, with the number of participating schools increasing from 300 in the first year to more than 870 this year.

She added that teachers and students had worked hard to make their school environments greener and more beautiful, and the standard of green projects was rising.
