STUDENTS had a chance to sort out their ideas about the drug issue and get a true picture of the problem when they took part in a recent inter-school quiz. Nine secondary schools in Wong Tai Sin district took part in last week's 'Fight Crime, Anti-corruption and Anti-Narcotics' quiz, which was won by Buddhist Hung Sean Chau Memorial College. Roy Lam Cheuk-hung, a member of the winning team, said more students and adults would benefit if quizzes like this were held at inter-district level. 'And we could reach a much wider audience if the contests were shown on TV,' he added. 'The quiz corrected some of my misconceptions about drug abusers,' said team member Ellen Wong Sze-man. 'I used to think they all came from poor families. But in fact not all of them do.' Docas Lee Chui-mei added: 'Like many others, we didn't realise that the methadone used in Hong Kong has changed in colour from orange to green.' Sixth-former Roy told Young Post that many students are under the impression that 'soft' drugs are less threatening or dangerous than 'hard' drugs. 'Here too we were mistaken.' The winners said they were eager to share their revised views with others. 'The first thing I will do when I get home is discuss with my family the interesting questions and answers I heard today,' said Roy, who was clearly pleased with his new perspective on a serious social problem. The winning team scored 220 points, beating the next school by 70 points. The team members said they had never expected to win. 'We were lucky!' said Roy. 'All the students who took part were well informed. They have been working very hard, doing research to prepare for the contest,' he said. Besides picking up a trophy, the team received three $1,000 book vouchers. The competition, which was held at the Lok Fu Shopping Centre, was organised by the Wong Tai Sin District Fight Crime Committee, Wong Tai Sin School Liaison Committee, Wong Tai Sin Police Community Relations Office and the ICAC Regional Office for Kowloon Central.
