An interactive Web site will be set up this month to provide help in choosing schools and jobs for Form Five students waiting for examination results. The service, to be set up by Caritas Hong Kong, will suggest which schools to apply to and centres to go to for job referrals after students enter personal details, expected grades and career interests. Results of the Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE) are to be released on August 9. Caritas' youth and community hotline service convenor Chan Wai-leung said: 'The Web site is available to all fifth-formers and whether they want to continue studying or find a job, they will be given appropriate suggestions.' There will also be a chat room for students to exchange views, with Caritas workers serving as facilitators. Under the current allocation system, students who are not re-admitted to their original schools often have to run from one school to another in search of vacant Secondary Six places. Following the example in Tai Po last year, schools in Sai Kung and New Territories North will run a joint admission system this summer. The Education Department will end a pager service to keep students posted on available places. The service was criticised last year for giving outdated information. However, the department's Web site and an interactive hotline offering similar information will still be available. Paging firms may choose to broadcast information from the Web site. The Tai Hang Residents' Welfare Association, Samaritan Befrienders and Hok Yau Club are among student welfare groups providing counselling this year. Tai Hang social worker Joe Ching Kin-cho said about 5,000 calls were received on its hotline last year and the association is now training volunteers. 'We had callers who were in need of counselling [last year], so we find it very important to equip our volunteers with the necessary skills,' he said.
