Leadership is all about team effort

Being a Form Six student has changed my life. There is a lot to do and learn. But these new challenges have given me the chance to work together with other students.

I had always considered myself a bad leader because I never trusted anyone to do a job well. I would do everything myself.

I wanna be a social worker

What sort of person does the job suit?

You should be at least willing to help and to support others. You need to be sympathetic. Those who are attentive, patient, observing and care about other people are more capable of doing the job.

What qualifications do you need?

You need to obtain a diploma or degree that is related to this profession.

Punishing workload

I agree with Thomson Leung's letter headlined 'Authority must change gruelling schedule in government hospitals' (South China Morning Post, January 23), about the heavy workload faced by hospital doctors and the adverse effect it has on their lives.

However, I am more concerned about how patients are affected.

Teachers put under too much pressure

Nowadays, teachers in Hong Kong are under tremendous pressure. They are expected to care for their students and always act in a professional manner.

However, given their massive workload and unreasonable public expectations, they have to try even harder. So many of them have no spare time and this affects their health.

Hundreds of expatriate engineers will be needed if Tung Chee-hwa's demands for better building inspection are to be met, the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers said.

The workload for structural engineers was expected to rise 55 per cent under the Government's plans to promote safer buildings, and there were not enough professionals to cope, said spokesman Greg Wong Chak-yan.

Huge increase in workload

I refer to Pete Alex's letter (South China Morning Post, July 9). Owing to the overwhelming interest in the Western Harbour Crossing Walk For Millions, we had to handle more than 60,000 sponsor forms and bank-in slips.

Watchdog posts get backing

I REFER to Mr Ho Tik-man's letter headlined, 'Hard work', which appeared in the South China Morning Post, on January 31.

There is no doubt that secondary six students face a very heavy workload.

ABOUT 300 officers at the Lands Department will tomorrow sit at their desks but refuse to do anything in protest against what they say is a heavy workload.

I REFER to the article headlined, ''Delay cost mounts for airport's rail link'' (South China Morning Post, February 16), which stated that the MTR Corporation's existing project staff ''may find themselves with little or nothing to do after this month''.
