Elder Academies

150.     Following this direction, the Government and the Elderly Commission have established 32 school-based Elder Academies in all the 18 districts of Hong Kong. This scheme has started to deliver results, and it is expected that the Elder Academies can provide over 5 000 places for the elderly in 2008. We will continue to promote this scheme. Apart from sustaining this development at primary and secondary school levels, we will extend the scheme to tertiary institutions so that the elderly will have the opportunity to take suitable courses at universities to continue their learning.
