Students from nine secondary schools presented their own ideas on how to revitalise old neighbourhoods during the first Urban Design Competition organised by the City University of Hong Kong (CityU). Sponsored by the Quality Education Fund, the competition attracted 38 teams from 24 schools. It is aimed at developing enquiry-based learning skills as well as cross-disciplinary thinking among students. Students were divided into junior (Form One to Form Three) and senior (Form Four to Form Six) groups. They had to make suggestions to improve urban environments, taking into account their chosen area's population, facilities, land use and traffic conditions. On March 1, 12 teams (six from each category) made their final presentations using power points and models in front of a panel of judges. Students from TWGHs Mrs Wu York Yu Memorial College, who focused on North Kwai Chung, were crowned champions in the senior group. In the junior category, STFA Leung Kau Kui College's Tuen Mun Castle project clinched top honours.
