    I don't want to hijack your thread, but I am in much the same situation, only on HK Island. I can not find hardly any info online in English. Can anyone help me find a listing of local school close to Pokfulam (or surrounding areas), or have any they could recommend? My daughter just turned 3 and we would really like to enrol her for September...
    All the best,
    Katie

    Kiangsu & Chekiang Primary ( Kindergartens) School has both a local section and an international section. Of course, the local section is much cheaper and more to budget to most. It's on the Hong Kong side. School bus can take care of all location problems.

    To consider one closer to Pokfulam, Rightmind Kindergarten may be good to try.

    Tai Koo belongs to the HK east area.

    Local Kindies, the closer and popular one will be Victoria. The other one is Kiangsu and Chekiang. Both have primary section.

    Victoria's primary section will be moving to Sham Wan of Wong chuk hang in 2007. They follow the International Bacculaureate system of education, having 2 teachers in a class using both English and Mandarin. No exams just assessment all through the school years.

    Kiangsu and Chekiang (KCS), is a mandarin school with half hour english in the kindie everyday. A multi-nationed kindie section. Japanese, British/Americans, Canadians, Taiwanese. The primary section, however, has less of the mixed nations. Most of them must have gone to ESF or other international schools. KCS, however, has an international section (KCIS) for Kindie, primary and secondary using the British Curr., similar to ESF. Previously, the kindies from this international section can go straight to ESF but afer the opening of its own primary section, the connection was cut.

    There is only one local english primary school on HK east i.e.Salesian english school. If english is not an issue, there are a few band one local school for you to review, like North Point Government School, CCC Kei Wan Primary Sch (Aldrich Bay) and HKUGA Primary School.

    The nearest International school will be Delia School of Canada but I don't think it has a kindie section. The other closer ones will be Korean Intenational Sch, KCIS (just mentioned above) and the Chinese International Sch. These 3 have Kindie sections.

    See if this helps.
