The Secretary for Justice, Ms Teresa Cheng, SC, visited Kwun Tong District today (December 13) to call on a primary school and a guide dogs centre and meet with District Council members.
Accompanied by the Chairman of the Kwun Tong District Council, Dr Bunny Chan, and the District Officer (Kwun Tong), Mr Steve Tse, Ms Cheng visited SKH Tak Tin Lee Shiu Keung Primary School in Lam Tin. She learnt about the school's creative English teaching project called SimCity, which helps students learn English in a fun and interactive way to boost their confidence and communication skills in using English.
Ms Cheng was also briefed about the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in the school. She watched the students' demonstrations on using coding programmes to control robots. She also encouraged students to actively participate in STEM activities to foster their creativity and technology knowledge.
Ms Cheng then proceeded to the Hong Kong Guide Dogs Association Jockey Club Education and Training Centre in Tsui Ping Estate. The Centre provides free professional trained dog services for people with visual impairment, autism and other disabilities. Regular public education programmes are also organised to enhance public awareness of guide dog services.
Before concluding her visit, Ms Cheng met with members of the Kwun Tong District Council and exchanged views on issues of concern.
