    English Primary schools

    I am trying to chose between 3 schools for my 7 year old who will start P2 in August. Can anyone provide feedback on the schools reputations?

    1. Po Leung Kuk Camoes Tan Siu Lin

    2. St Margaret's English Primary

    3. Delia English Primary School (Mei Foo)

    Thanks for your comments.

    we didn't really consider ESF and chose a local education for our kids... not everyone believes that ESF or international is the way to go.

    I would love to send my child to an ESF School but their fees are out of my reach. Especially since I have 4 children!

    Do you have offers from all three?

    I'll only say that Delia would be last on my list - not a great reputation.

    St Margaret's is well regarded, PLK less so.

    All the best!

    St Margaret's. Delia - I don't think they are as 'bad' as is sometimes made out: some of their schools are better than others.

    WaffleHK- I don't have offers from all 3. My child has applied to do the 'Initiation Program' at Delia - Mei Foo. If we are successful at the initiation program we are going to try St Margaret's or PLK.

    HappyV- does Delia- Mei Foo classify as one of the good ones? They are 1 of 2 schools in HK that run an 'Initiation Program'. Have you heard anything about this!
