     The Education Bureau is pleased to announce the results of the School Allocation Exercise 2010 today (June 24). Three quality applications have been selected for the allocation of two new school premises under planning in the Kai Tak Development and one vacant school premises in Kwai Tsing district.

     "The Anglican (Hong Kong) Primary Schools Council Limited has been allocated a new school premises in the Kai Tak Development for reprovisioning S.K.H. Yat Sau Primary School and S.K.H. Ching Shan Primary School.  Upon relocation to the new premises, the two schools will merge and operate as one primary school committed to continuing the efforts of the existing schools in fostering inclusive education.  Another new school premises in the Kai Tak Development has been allocated to Po Leung Kuk for reprovisioning Po Leung Kuk Stanley Ho Sau Nan Primary School.  The ex-premises of Sheung Kwai Chung Government Secondary School in Kwai Tsing has been allocated to the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong for reprovisioning Shek Lei Catholic Primary School.  Both operators have committed to promoting the integration of the schools and its students with the local community upon relocation to the new premises," a spokesman for the Education Bureau said.

     "We have received 19 applications from 14 bodies in this school allocation exercise.  The competition was very keen, in particular for the two new school premises in the Kai Tak Development.  All the applications received have been considered by the Education Bureau on the advice of the School Allocation Committee comprising official and non-official members.  The Committee has undergone a thorough and detailed scrutiny process taking into account a basket of factors including the quality of the school proposals, track record of operation, physical conditions of the existing premises of applicant schools, etc.  Apart from these factors, the location of the applicant schools (i.e. whether they are currently operating in the same district as the location of the new/vacant school premises available for allocation) has also been taken into account," the spokesman said.
