Po Leung Kuk Lam Man Chan English Primary School complies with the requirements for the fee remission/scholarship schemes in Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) Schools based on Education Bureau (EDB) Circular No. 2/2011 that was superseded by Education Bureau (EDB) Circular No. 10/2012.
However, the utilization rates of our school’s fee remission/scholarship provisions are both 100% or more as reflected in the audited accounts of the past three consecutive years. The school can apply to the EDB for exemption from the requirement for DSS Schools to adopt eligibility criteria for fee sessions schemes no less favorable than those of the government financial assistance schemes. Our School is now applying for this exemption. We anticipate the requirement for DSS Schools not to adopt eligibility criteria for fee sessions schemes no less favorable than those of the government financial assistance schemes in 2016/17.
Students receiving fee remission before the schools adopt the revised eligibility criteria will not be affected.
