FIVE Junior Police Call (JPC) members' hard work in last year's Summer Youth Programme (SYP) has earned them well-deserved scholarships for local and overseas outward bound courses. They were commended by the City and New Territories Administration during a prize presentation ceremony in mid-December when a total of 36 scholarships were presented to outstanding SYP volunteers. Three of the six scholarships went to JPCs Kwok Ka-chuen of Eastern District, Cheung Wing-shan of Yau Tsim District and Fung Pui-ki of Wong Tai Sin District. Two other JPCs, Lau Lap-hang of Kwun Tong District and Mok Chi-kit of Wan Chai District, were awarded local scholarships. Fung Pui-ki, who will join in an outward bound course in Vietnam in May this year, said she was delighted at the unexpected award. Pui-ki was involved in the organisation of a series of SYP activities, including a fight crime arts and craft competition, a visit to an elderly hostel, an Ocean Park tour for a group of mentally-handicapped children and a leadership training camp. She considered the fight crime arts and craft competition as the most successful activity. 'We were overwhelmed by the response to the contest in July last year as more than 1,000 entries were received. It was even more encouraging to note that 4,000 participants and guests turned up at the prize presentation.' Lau Lap-hang, the recipient of a scholarship for an 18-day Sea/Land Diploma Course at the territory's Outward Bound School, was commended for his concern about the well-being of senior citizens. 'Originally, I planned to organise a recreational activity in an elderly hostel. But on second thought, I dropped this idea because such activities were not that meaningful,' he said. 'Finally, I came up with this idea of helping the elderly people to clean up their houses. I am really both surprised and happy.
