The International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO) 2018 – Hong Kong Screening is co-organised by the Gifted Education Section of the Education Bureau (EDB), the Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education and the Hong Kong Association for Science and Mathematics Education. The screening aims at identifying scientifically gifted students at junior secondary levels for training in advanced science subject knowledge. It is also expected that students’ collaboration skills, critical thinking skills, creativity, and communication skills would be enhanced through this IJSO student training programme. After the intensive training programme, six students may be selected to represent Hong Kong to participate in the 15th International Junior Science Olympiad to be held in early December 2018. The competition will usually last for 10 days. This year, six students from our school participated in the Screening and they received one 1st Honour Award, one 2nd Honour Award and two 3rd Honour Awards. The awardees are as follows: F.3B Lam Ka Chai Marcus 1st Honor F.3C Chiu Ka Ming 2nd Honor F.3B Chan Pak San 3rd Honor F.3B Wan Tsz Wai 3rd Honor Lam Ka Chai Marcus and Chiu Ka Ming were selected to attend the training programme jointly organized by the Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education and Chinese University of Hong Kong. Meanwhile, the our school science KLA also started up a series of training courses for these two students. We hope they can represent Hong Kong to participate in the International Junior Science Olympiad in the coming year.
