The Financial Secretary in his 2021-22 Budget Speech further proposed to extend the “IT Innovation Lab” programme to cover primary schools:
The IT Innovation Lab in Secondary Schools Programme has received positive response since its launch. I will set aside over $200 million to extend the programme to primary schools. Funding of up to $400,000 will be provided to each subsidised primary school in the coming three school years, thereby rolling out a "Knowing More About IT" Programme to enhance students' interests and knowledge in information technology and their applications through extra-curricular activities, so as to prepare them for integration into the knowledge-based economy and participation in the development of a digital society. The OGCIO will set up a one-stop support centre to provide assistance for primary schools.
The OGCIO extends the IT Innovation Lab Programme to all publicly-funded primary school and implements the “Knowing More About IT” Programme to provide funding support of up to $400,000 in the three school years from 2021/22 to 2023/24 for each publicly funded primary school to upgrade their IT equipment and facilities and organise IT-related activities.
