Enriched IT Activities Programme in Secondary Schools
From 2015/16 school year to 2022/23 school year, partner schools will each organise at least three IT activities every school year for the school community. In addition, OGCIO will also invite other interested schools to organise IT activities for secondary students in order to enrich IT learning outside the school curriculum, to provide more opportunities for students to apply IT knowledge, and to cultivate creativity through IT or related activities.
