    ESF Places

    What is the low-down on ESF schools?

    I was told by 1 person they have to offer you a place if you speak no Chinese, but another disagreed with this.

    I rang them to check and they were very vague.

    What is everyone's experiences?

    No, but it effects your priority for an interview.

    ***********
    *
    Applications in higher categories will be invited for interviews before those in lower ones, regardless of the date of application.

    3. CATEGORIES THAT DETERMINE INTERVIEW PRIORITY:
    Category 1. First language English speaking students who cannot attend a local school because of insufficient grasp of Cantonese.

    Category 2. Students whose first language is not English who cannot attend a local school because of insufficient grasp of Cantonese.

    Category 3. Students with English as an additional language, who qualify to attend a local school.

    Within each category priority will be given to students who:

    * have brothers or sisters already attending the school
    * are attending an ESF Educational Services kindergarten (for Y1 only)
    * are former students returning from a period overseas
    * have a parent who is a full time employee of the ESF
    * are the children of former students of the school.

    A student who has no place in a Hong Kong school, on arrival in Hong Kong, will take preference over a student with a place in another Hong Kong school.
