The GITPA’s Lunar New Year hiking activity (GITPA 狗年新春行大運 (鶴藪、沙螺洞、鳳園)遠足活動) was held on 3 March 2018 (Saturday).
A total of 26 colleagues and their family members had joined the activity. Departing from the Hok Tau (鶴藪) barbecue site in Fanling at around 2p.m., we walked along Hok Tau Tsuen (鶴藪村), Hok Tau Reservoir (鶴藪水塘) and Sha Lo Tung (沙螺洞), and arrived at Fung Yuen (鳳園) at about 4:30p.m.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle, we enjoyed peace and fresh air. It was quite cloudy and foggy in the beginning, but sunshine started to greet us during the hike. The 2.5-hour hike was relaxing and refreshing. We even got the chance to have “afternoon tea” at Sha Lo Tung!
Consultation Exercise – Extension of Service of Civil Servants
As you may have learnt from the circulation from the administration unit or personnel section of the B/D that you are serving, the Secretary for the Civil Service has launched a consultation paper on extension of the service of civil servants who joined the Government between 1 June 2000 and 31 May 2015. The consultation paper sets out the proposed implementation framework of the new initiative. (The paper is available on the website of the Civil Service Bureau at http://www.csb.gov.hk/english/publication/2695.html).
If you would like to provide your views and comments on the consultation paper through GITPA for us to present them in one go to the OGCIO, you may send them to us at GITPA/OGCIO/HKSARG on or before 9 April 2018 (Monday). Looking forward to hearing from you!
