Get out before it's too late

Compensated dating is becoming a trend among young girls. This is a serious problem that needs to be tackled urgently.

Youth at risk

I am concerned about the youth unemployment rate in Hong Kong. According to a recent newspaper report, almost one in five young people are out of work.

These young people could be labelled as 'youth at risk' because they have no direction in life. Without a job, they will be under pressure and could be easily led astray.

Handling the virus threat correctly

I think the government has done a great job of containing the swine flu virus in Hong Kong.

Don't take trust for granted

We can all learn from the story The Boy Who Cried Wolf.

Peter was a young shepherd. One day he was bored, so for fun he decided to play a trick on the people in his village. He shouted: 'Help! A wolf is attacking my sheep!'

A performance that inspires change

I read a news article recently. It was about how a group of mentally handicapped students put on a music and dance performance at a fund-raising event at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.

Please behave on the MTR

I'm sure many of you use the MTR. It's safe, fast and comfortable. It's an essential part of Hong Kong's success.

More than 4.3 million people ride on MTR trains every day. Unfortunately, not all of them behave well and obey the rules. You may see people blocking doorways, kissing or failing to move in for other passengers.

Tired of tests

I was happy to hear the government believed that examinations were not the most important thing in education.

But nothing is really changing for students. We still face never-ending quizzes, tests and exercises.

Because of these demands on us, we do not have time to develop other skills such as our creative abilities.

Means test for elderly acceptable

I believe there should be a means test for the 'fruit money'. I agree with the government's original proposal which requires the elderly to prove they deserve the monthly HK$1,000 payment.

Many people said such a test was an insult to the elderly. I disagree.

Sport is part of a good education

Government resources for Hong Kong youth tend to go into education, not sport.

I think this is a problem and we should do something about it.

Education is, of course, extremely important, but being active and having a healthy body is equally important.

Typhoon confusion offers lesson

There was anger and confusion as stormy conditions disrupted Form Six admissions across Hong Kong last month.

Students seeking Secondary Six places queued outside some schools, although the No 8 typhoon signal had been raised.
