Parents reminded to submit application form for admission to Primary One
     The Education Bureau has reminded parents who wish to apply for a Primary One (P1) place for their child in any government or aided school in September 2019 to submit their application forms starting next Monday (September 24).

     "Parents intending to apply for a particular government or aided primary school at the Discretionary Places Admission stage under the Primary One Admission (POA) System should submit the completed application form with all supporting documents directly to that school during school office hours between September 24 and October 2," a spokesman for the Education Bureau said today (September 20).

     He reminded parents that schools would process the applications in accordance with the established procedures and criteria at the Discretionary Places Admission stage. As such, there is no need for parents to prepare portfolios for their children.

     The spokesman reminded parents to submit only one application form for each child. Otherwise, their application for a discretionary place would be rendered void.

     Children who have accepted the offer of P1 places in Direct Subsidy Scheme primary schools will not be allocated P1 places in government or aided primary schools through the POA System.

     Parents who opt to apply for Central Allocation only should submit the completed application form and supporting documents during office hours between September 24, 2018, and January 25, 2019, to the Education Bureau's School Places Allocation Section (Primary One Admission) at Office 2, 2/F, Manulife Financial Centre, 223 Wai Yip Street, Kwun Tong, Kowloon.

     "When completing the application form, parents should fill in the actual residential address of their child. If a false address is given by parents to secure a P1 place for their child under the POA System, the application will be rendered void and the P1 place allocated will be withdrawn. The public are encouraged to report suspected cases of using a false address for POA applications to the School Places Allocation Section by calling the hotline on 2832 7700," the spokesman said.
