IN ORDER to strengthen communication between the school and parents and to encourage students to seek help in improving their performance, Kei Heep Secondary Technical School has introduced a number of initiatives under the school-remedial support programme this year. Five members of the Board of Education, led by its chairman Tam Man-kwan and accompanied by the Deputy Director of Education Elaine Chung and the AsSistant Director of Education (Schools) Tsui See-ming, visited the school in Wong Tai Sin last week to see first-hand the progress in the programme. Other visiting members included Bow Sui-may, Audrey Eu Yuet-mee and Michael Hong Man-hoi. The group was briefed by principal Cheung kim-sing on the school curriculum and activities and facilities provided by the school. In addition to mainstream subjects, the school offers a number of technical subjects such as metalwork, woodwork, technical drawing, domestic science and electronics, as an alternative form of secondary education. Mr Cheung said students would be awarded for improvement in academic performance, conduct and social services.
