Hong Kong government has launched Sex Education on Website in an attempt to provide support on the subject for teachers, Secretary for Education and Manpower Arthur Li said on Wednesday.
Li said the Website provides a source of reference for teachers where teaching resources are made available on sex-related issues that are of concern to the community or have aroused interest and doubts among the young people.
"Teachers may also design supplementary school-based on sex-education programs according to the needs of their students. In addition, we organize professional development programs from time to time in a bid to help them build up confidence and capability in teaching," he noted.
"Through school visits and contacts with teachers in professional training activities, we have learned that schools can make use of different kinds of activities, such as talks, exhibitions, debate competitions, adventure-based training camps, to provide sex education," Li said.
"We believe that sex education has been generally and properly implemented in schools," Li added.
