Second School Allocation Exercise 2017 invites applications for school premises for operation of three new aided primary schools
     The Education Bureau (EDB) announced today (March 27) that one new school premises under planning in Shui Chuen O, Sha Tin, and two new school premises under planning in Queen's Hill, Fanling, are open for application by eligible applicant bodies for operating new aided primary schools under the Second School Allocation Exercise (SAE) 2017. Details of the three new school premises under planning are set out in the Annex.

     "Allocation of the school premises is on a competitive basis. Quality of education will be the prime consideration in assessing the applications submitted by applicant bodies. Factors to be considered include the quality of the proposed school plans in running the new primary schools and the track records of the applicant bodies in operating schools (where applicable), particularly primary schools," an EDB spokesman said.

     All applications will be considered by the School Allocation Committee comprising official and non-official members. Applicant bodies are required to complete an application form and submit it together with the required supporting documents, a proposed school plan (of not more than 10 pages including all annexes plus a two-page executive summary) covering the vision and mission, management and organisation, learning and teaching, school ethos and support for students, students' performance targets and self-evaluation indicators, and a list of operating schools (if any). The applicant body may also make reference to the school(s) that it is operating and their respective performance to substantiate its case.

     In line with the EDB's established policy for school allocation, when submitting the application, the applicant body should be exempt from tax under Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance, and be:

(1) incorporated under the Companies Ordinance (the successful applicant body would be required to ensure that its articles of association contain all the standard clauses and articles required for allocation of a school premises); or

(2) incorporated under other ordinances, with its constitution satisfying the Permanent Secretary for Education as being fit to be considered for allocation of a school premises.

     The application form for the Second SAE 2017 and other reference materials can be downloaded from the EDB homepage (www.edb.gov.hk/en/sch-admin/sch-premises-info/allocation-of-sch/index.html). More information on this SAE can also be found on the homepage.

     The duly completed application form and supporting documents, together with 21 copies of the proposed school plan with the executive summary and list of operating schools, if any, should reach the Infrastructure and Research Support Division of the EDB (6/F, East Wing, Central Government Offices, 2 Tim Mei Avenue, Tamar, Hong Kong) by 5pm on April 27, 2017.
