Organised by the Music Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the Scheme aims to encourage music groups from kindergartens, primary, secondary and special schools as well as tertiary institutions to care for the community.

Each performance can receive a maximum subsidy of $2,000 to cover costs. Successful applicants must complete their performances on or before March 31, 2024. Outstanding teams will be invited to perform and share their service experiences at the Gala Concert to be held in April or May 2024.

Marking the third anniversary of the implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law (NSL), the Security Bureau (SB) launched the updated version of the NSL online virtual exhibition with the Hong Kong Palace Museum (HKPM) as its virtual background, bringing a new touring experience to visitors.To enhance the understanding of members of the public regarding the legislative background, importance and significance of the NSL, the SB first launched the NSL online virtual exhibition in July 2021, which has registered more than 440 000 visits thus far. The online virtual exhibition of the third anniversary of the promulgation of the NSL is inspired by the HKPM, with new virtual backgrounds embellished with Chinese cultural components in a Chinese-style layout. The various zones of the exhibition provide rich information on the NSL to members of the public, covering the importance of the NSL, the legal regime, enforcement mechanisms, major provisions and effectiveness, the work of the disciplined forces in safeguarding national security, reference materials as well as the winning entries of the "Let's Join Hands in Safeguarding National Security" Programme. The updated version of the exhibition is especially housed in virtual exhibition halls on different floors, unlike the previous version where it was all shown in one large exhibition hall. Visitors can simulate taking the escalators to navigate different floors, or visiting the exhibition halls to view the content, or heading to the viewing deck to enjoy the day and night views of Victoria Harbour, which brings more fun to the visit. Two new mini-games have also been added to the exhibition, allowing visitors, especially the youth, to enhance their understanding of the NSL in a fun way. In addition, print and search functions are enhanced to improve the exhibition's practicability.
Jointly organised by the EDB and Applied Learning (ApL) course providers, the online exhibition is held during 17.5.2023 to 31.5.2024. Students can visit the Virtual Exhibition to browse the information provided by all 10 ApL course providers on 60 ApL courses, including course briefs, videos and students' sharing, to gain a better understanding of ApL as a valued senior secondary elective subject.
