    Hong Kong Public Education

    what qualifies a child to attend public school?

    will having Right of Abode be sufficient or will the child need to be a citizen?

    ROA is given to PR & resident on VISA

    My understanding is that right of abode is sufficient to apply.

    You are quite mistaken. ROA is given to Chinese citizens or residents who have stayed in hk for longer than 7 years continuously with the proper legal visa (work, qmas, investment, dependent) or with RTL.

    As long as you are a resident (no need for roa) you can enjoy hk's public education system.

    Fyi there is no such thing as HK citizenship.
