LCQ10: Student statistics for 2006/07 school year

    Following is a question by the Hon Audrey Eu Yuet-mee and a written reply by the Secretary for Education and Manpower, Professor Arthur K C Li, in the Legislative Council today (January 31):


     Will the Government inform this Council of the numbers (or provisional numbers) of students and classes in secondary and primary day schools in Hong Kong in the 2006/2007 school year, broken down by sector (including government, aided, Direct Subsidy Scheme, private and international schools) and by grade?


Madam President,

     Schools normally provide us with information on the enrolled students during the few months after the start of a school year and the data provided by individual schools will also have to be verified.  Accordingly, at the present moment we are only in a position to provide the provisional number of students and operating classes in primary and secondary day schools broken down by sector and by grade in the 2006/07 school year.  The information is set out in the Appendix.
