The Hong Kong Healthy Schools Award Scheme has been adopted by 100 schools in Hong Kong and won international recognition since it was launched by Chinese University in 2001. Now some participating schools have been named as 'healthy school pioneers'. They will send staff acting as mentors to schools wanting to join the scheme to explain how to become a healthy school. The project is being launched today in Tin Shui Wai. Asia-Australia student swap A pair students from the University of Hong Kong and the University of Melbourne have become the first to benefit from a scheme to promote exchanges between selected Asian and Australian universities. HKU law student Pan Wing-tat is studying at the Melbourne Law School this term, while Melbourne arts student Francis Meehan will come to HKU for the next semester. The scheme is jointly funded by the Cheung Kong Group and the Australian government. The initiative is set to award A$500,000 ($2.99 million) over the next three financial years. No charges for international students The British Council has clarified that the Higher Education Act, which will allow British universities to charge local students fees of up to #3,000 ($43,595) a year from next year, does not apply to international students. Students from abroad already pay fees of between #6,825 and #10,000 a year.
