  School Vision  
     
 

Developing children's potential to the fullest is an overriding aim of our school.

Education is about nurturing the whole child - our school embraces development of the child in the moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic spheres.

Our school is committed to providing a caring, harmonious and stimulating environment where children are joyful and secure enough to be able to work to the best of their ability.

 
     


  School History  
     
 

Established in the 1950s by the Portuguese Community Education and Welfare Foundation Incorporated, our school was previously known as Portuguese Community Schools, Inc., Escola Camões.

Since 1996, the school has been run by Po Leung Kuk.

In 1999, it was re-named as Po Leung Kuk Camões Tan Siu Lin Primary School.

Since 2000/2001, our school has become the pioneer DSS primary school in Hong Kong.

  FAQ  
     
 
01.   What is Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS)?
Under the DSS, a school can obtain direct subsidy from the Education Department with the amount calculated in accordance with the no. of students enrolled in the school. It is different from those government and subsidized schools in that a DSS school enjoys the maximum freedom with regard to medium of instruction, student admission method, school fee, curricula as well as employment of teaching staff. (Ref. Education Commission Report No. 3 published in June 1998)

Our School Fee Remission Scheme aims to relieve the financial burden of families having economic hardship. The eligibility criteria are not less favourable than the Government Financial Assistances Scheme  applicable to students.  Successful applicants, after family’s income checking, can receive either half or full remission. In addition, scholarship will be awarded to outstanding students.  The School issues a circular in September every year to all students inviting eligible students to submit application for fee remission.  For details, please click Scholarship and Fee Remission Scheme.

04.   What is the medium of instruction of your school?
English will remain as the medium of instruction of our school. Apart from English, we also put strong emphasis on Chinese, Putonghua and French.

The school bus company commissioned by our school provides bus services to students in different areas. Fees for the school bus service are charged differently according to individual bus route..

Different collaboration teams have been formed to advocate good teaching practices. Based on the current curriculum, we are attempting to restructure our curriculum and teaching resources for better teaching and learning.
