27th Anniversary of the Establishment of HKSAR (National Flag Hoisting Ceremony)

The National Flag Hoisting Ceremony was held on June 25 to celebrate the 27th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) of the People's Republic of China (PRC).  The theme selected by the Civic Education Committee was "The 2024 Challenges and Opportunities of the HKSAR, PRC," with the objective of fostering students' national identity and enhancing their National Security Education, specifically in the area of economic security.  During the ceremony, two Secondary 3 students discussed the economic challenges faced by Hong Kong this year, particularly the impact on the tourism industry.  They also highlighted the government's efforts to implement measures for the industry's recovery.  This event offered students a platform to engage with significant social issues and contemplate their roles as responsible citizens of Hong Kong.
