YOU ARE LATE for school again and the only way to escape punishment is to offer a bribe to the school prefect to stop him making a report. Would you be tempted? Oscar Wilde said the best way to resist a temptation is to succumb to it. But another way is to be prepared for it, as the schools which took part in a competition to produce an anti-corruption video will tell you; corruption is just around the corner of every school. The above scenario was part of the work of the students from PLK Lee Shing Pik College, who received the most creative award in the Secondary Schools Video Clip Project organised by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC). The story concerns a teacher who witnesses a student bribing a prefect to keep his misconduct off the record after being late. The teacher then threatens to tell the pupil's parents. The student then ran into the teacher after school and saw that he was buying pornographic videos. Will the teacher do the student a favour by keeping what he knows to himself if the student does the same for him? The answers are up to you. 'We discussed with our teachers the temptations of corruption at school and came up with this scenario. We wanted to make the subject sound less conventional, less boring,' said fourth-former Kevin Lee. 'The more we think about it, the more we know the temptation of corruption is all around us.' Sixth-former Raymond Yip Kar-chi of Wong Shiu Chi Secondary School, which was awarded the Best Theme Presentation, said the competition had provoked more discussion on corruption in school. Wong Shiu Chi Secondary School's story involved three students who accidentally got hold of some examination papers before the finals. The students, who had different goals towards their studies and values in life, all dealt with it differently. 'Corruption can be more than just monetary benefit. It can come in many forms,' said sixth-former Eddie Chow Tze-chun. In fact, corruption is no longer a remote concept for secondary students, especially in today's world where ever-complicating values have blurred the line between right and wrong. ICAC deputy chief education officer Jacky Pang Kin-fu said he hoped the competition would help students be stronger against corruption and temptation. 'They are mature enough to judge what is right and wrong. But corruption might not be a topic they would discuss outside the classroom. 'By having a serious discussion and actually turning their ideas into a video clip, I am sure their reflections will be a lot more in-depth. This will act as a guide for them in future in times of danger and temptation,' Pang said.
