  School Scholarship and Fee Remission Scheme  
 
 
 

The school scholarship and fee remission scheme has been launched since 2000/01 under the direct subsidy scheme.

Objective
To relieve the financial burden of parents having economic hardship.
To award students with outstanding academic and non-academic performance.

School Scholarship

1. Top 5 Subject Prize
This scholarship is awarded to the top 5 students in Chinese, NCS Chinese, English, French, Putonghua, Mathematics, GS, Music, PE , VA, Basic French, Basic Japanese and Basic Spanish.  All the prize winners are nominated by the school at the end of each academic year and based on the top subject scores earned for that year. For the best P6 FYP group of each class, subject prize will also be awarded.

2. Top 5 in Level Prize
This scholarship is awarded to the top 5 students in each level of P.1 to P.5. Prize winners ranked 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th will be awarded 10, 9, 8, 7 and 6 instalments of the annual school fee as the prize respectively. However, the scholarship is not a cash prize. The scholarship will be applied to the school tuition fee for the next academic year, therefore no cash payment will be made in any circumstances.

3. Non-academic Scholarship
3.1 Outstanding Performance Scholarship: This scholarship is awarded to talented students with outstanding performance in non-academic fields. Every April, all teachers in the school can nominate outstanding students for election. There are 14 winners (max.) and each of them will be awarded HK$3000 as a scholarship for their training courses.
3.2 Instrumental Class Scholarship: This scholarship is awarded to students to recognize the effort dedicated to instrumental learning and to encourage potential students to receive high quality instrumental training. P.1 to P.6 instrumental class students with outstanding performance in the school instrumental assessment and/or public instrumental examination are eligible. The scholarship will be applied to the school instrumental class fee for the next academic year for P.1 to P.5 scholarship winners. For P.6 scholarship winners, a refund of instrumental class fee will be made instead.

4. Study Tour Scholarship
This scholarship is awarded to all successful candidates of the study tour organized by the School. The scholarship is only for paying the tour fee, therefore no cash payment will be made in any circumstances.

5. The Most Improved Prize
This scholarship is awarded to the top 5 students in each level of P.1 to P.6. All the prize winners are nominated by the school at the end of each academic year. Base on the improvement in the total score in the second term, the top 5 students will be awarded HK$1000 as a scholarship.


Fee Remission

Our school fee for 2020-2021 is HK$19,800 per annum which shall be paid in 10 installments ($1,980 per month). The above payment does not include payment for uniforms, school bus service, lunch, textbooks and other special interest classes.
Remark: The school fee for each year may be increased subject to EDB’s approval.

1. Tuition Fee Remission
Successful applicants, after the family’s income checking has been confirmed, can receive either 100% / 60% / 30% remission. Applicants who are eligible for 60% remission may stop paying tuition fees in January while those who are eligible for 30% remission may stop paying tuition fees in April. Any tuition fee paid by 100% remission applicants can get refund upon further notice. Application of the Fee Remission Scheme occurs every year and the school will process all applications in two stages:

  • Applications submitted within October (first batch): the result will be finalized and announced within November..
  • Applications submitted later than October (second batch): the result will be finalized and announced after November.

 

2. Activity Fee Remission Scheme
The new policy has been launched since 2011/12. Eligible students* can apply for the Activities Fee Remission for School activities/ interest classes/ study tours. There is no limitation on the amount of remission per student per year. However, the School has the right to stop the granting of Activities Fee Remission if the Reserve for Fee Remission and Scholarship falls under 50% of the latest annual provision. Furthermore, students must apply for the activities and undergo auditions (if any) under the usual procedures. Eligible students will receive an individual notification.

The Means Test

We use the "Adjusted Family Income" (AFI) mechanism as the means test to assess the eligibility of a family for student financial assistance and its assistance level. The AFI mechanism is based on the following formula:

 

  • Gross annual income of the family includes the annual income of the applicant and his/her spouse; 30% of the annual income of unmarried child / children residing with the family if applicable; and the contribution from relatives / friends if applicable.
  • The members of a family normally refer to the applicant, his/her spouse, unmarried child / children residing with the family and the dependent parent(s) who are supported by the applicant and/or his/her spouse (Please refer to the Guidance Notes on Application for Assessment of Eligibility for definition of “Dependent Parent”).
  • For single-parent families of 2 to 3 members, the ‘plus 1 factor’ in the divisor of the AFI formula will be increased to 2.

Level of Assistance

The AFI eligibility benchmarks for various levels of assistance in the 2020 / 21 school year are listed in the table below. Please note that the AFI is not the average monthly income of a family.

2020 / 21 school year - AFI Groups between (HK$) Level of Remission
0 – 41,568
100%
41,569 – 80,378
60%
80,379 – 84,690
30%
> 84,691
Ineligible

* AFI thresholds for full level of assistance for 3-member and 4-member families are $50,323 and $46,297 respectively. For 2-member single-parent families and 3-member single-parent families, they are regarded as 3-member families and 4-member families respectively for determining the AFI thresholds for full level of assistance and calculation of AFI.
