Teachers and heads of kindergartens, primary and secondary schools interested in the School-based Curriculum Project Scheme are reminded to submit their applications by Saturday. The scheme aims to encourage teachers to participate in curriculum development work. Under the scheme, a curriculum project grant ranging from $9,800 to $42,550 will be provided to each project complementing the curriculum set out in the syllabuses or curriculum guidelines prepared by the Curriculum Development Council. Projects should be specifically designed to cater for various needs, abilities and interests of pupils at individual schools. Projects may include the design of new teaching approaches to specific topics in the curriculum; new topics or areas of studies as alternatives to certain aspects of the curriculum; and teaching/resource materials. Interested teachers should send their completed application forms to the Research, Evaluation and Projects Section of the Education Department's Curriculum Development Institute at Room 1012, Wu Chung House, 213 Queen's Road East, Wan Chai. For enquiries, call 2892 5830 or 2892 5838.
