Spe­cial net­work for cross-bor­der chil­dren

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - NATION | DIGEST -

The Ed­u­ca­tion Bureau es­ti­mated some 2,800 chil­dren liv­ing on the main­land would par­tic­i­pate in the cen­tral al­lo­ca­tion scheme for pri­mary-one school places next year. In re­sponse, a spe­cial net­work of 3,000 school places would be set up, Un­der Sec­re­tary for Ed­u­ca­tion Kevin Ye­ung Yun-hung said on Thurs­day. He said the net­work for cross-bor­der chil­dren would have 2,800 places in schools in eight dis­tricts ad­ja­cent to bor­der con­trol points, while the Wong Tai Sin, Tung Chung and Ma On Shan dis­tricts would pro­vide another 200. A bus ride from the bor­der con­trol point to Wong Tai Sin takes about 40 min­utes, which was ac­cept­able, he said.
