THE Labour Department's 13th Careers Quiz attracted a record 140,512 students from 276 secondary schools. Announcing the quiz winners, Senior Labour Officer Ada Leung said the number of participants was very encouraging, showing that students were attaching more importance to career planning. Kowloon True Light Middle School was the winner in both the Secondary Three and Four sections, while the winning school in the Secondary Five section was Yu Chun Keung Memorial College. Trophies will be awarded to the winners and the two runners-up of each section on March 10. The highest scoring students in the three sections were Ho Wing-ki of Kowloon True Light Middle School in the Secondary Three section, Wong Wai-ngan of Ho Dao College (Secondary Four), and Lai Siu-ho of Caritas Chan Chun Ha Prevocational School, Fanling (Secondary Five). 'Together with the three runners-up of each section, they will each receive a Pentax camera,' Mrs Leung said. She added that outstanding students in each section would also be presented with prizes and souvenirs sponsored by the camera firm. The quiz, organised by the Careers Advisory Service of the Labour Department, is aimed at arousing students' awareness of the importance of choosing a suitable career and encouraging them to look for up-to-date information on careers and further training opportunities. 'It is a highlight of the Fifth Education and Careers Expo which will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from February 23 to 26,' Mrs Leung said. Jointly organised by the department and the Trade Development Council, the expo will feature some 180 exhibitors from a wide range of trades, industries, government departments, professional bodies as well as local and overseas educational and training institutes.
