Primary School Profiles 2018 to be released
The Committee on Home-School Co-operation (CHSC) will upload the e-version (in Chinese and English) of the Primary School Profiles 2018 to the Internet on Wednesday (September 5). The Chinese and English printed versions of the profiles will be delivered to kindergartens and kindergarten-cum-child care centres for distribution to parents with children at the K3 level of the current school year.
The profiles provide basic information on more than 500 local primary schools covering school facilities, teaching staff information, class structure, performance assessment, school life, extra-curricular activities, school mission and school characteristics. To provide parents with more comprehensive information for making school choices, two columns on "Whole School Approach to Integrated Education" and "Education Support for Non-Chinese Speaking Students" are newly added. The information is provided and verified by individual schools.
The publication of the profiles aims to provide parents with essential school information so as to enable them to choose a suitable school for their children. The profiles also include the "Message from CHSC Chairman", which states the key points for parents when choosing schools.
The e-version of the profiles enables schools to update their information on the Web directly, whenever necessary, so that parents can obtain the most up-to-date school information.
The profiles are divided by districts. Parents of children who will study at Primary One level in September 2019 will receive a copy of either the Chinese or English printed version of the profiles for their districts of residence through their respective kindergartens or kindergarten-cum-child care centres. For children not attending kindergartens or kindergarten-cum-child care centres, parents may obtain a copy from the School Places Allocation Section of the Education Bureau (EDB).
The public can access the e-version of the profiles by visiting the Primary School Profiles website at www.chsc.hk/primary or m.chsc.hk/primary (mobile version). Copies of the printed version will be available for public reference at District Offices, public libraries, Regional Education Offices and Central Resources Centre of the EDB.
