In a first, one of the young female persons in custody has been successfully admitted to a local university through the Joint University Programmes Admissions System to pursue her studies in a bachelor's degree programme.

     Officiating at the ceremony, the Chairlady of the Lok Sin Tong Benevolent Society Kowloon, Dr Yang Xiaoling, said that her organisation has long supported the CSD's rehabilitation work. The secondary schools run by Lok Sin Tong have actively participated in various events under the Rehabilitation Pioneer Project with a view to spreading the messages of leading a law-abiding and drug-free life as well as supporting offender rehabilitation for young people.
