References on Acceptance of Advantages and Donations by Schools and Their Staff

 

Under Section 9 of the Prevention of Bribery Ordinance (POBO), it is an offence for an employee to accept, without his/her employer's permission, an advantage as an inducement to or reward for doing or not doing an act in relation to the employer's business. The person who offers the advantage shall also be guilty of an offence.

The School Management Committees (SMCs) /Incorporated Management Committees (IMCs) as the managers and employers of their teaching and non-teaching staff, have the responsibility to formulate policies and issue clear guidelines for their schools and staff on the acceptance of advantages and donations. SMCs/IMCs should ensure that their schools are being managed and operated in a fair and just way by implementing proper policies in administration areas including student admission, appointment and promotion of staff, purchase of goods/services, and selection of suppliers/contractors. As schools have a strong influence on young people, the SMCs/IMCs should set themselves as role models. They should promote a fair and just atmosphere in schools and should also ensure that their schools and staff are in every way above suspicion of doubtful practice. School managers, teachers and staff are expected to have a high standard of integrity by members of public.
