‘Five public schools face axe in Hong Kong after failing to meet Primary One enrolment threshold’

Five public schools in Hong Kong are facing the axe after failing to enrol enough students to operate even a single Primary One class, the Post has learned.

Two principals, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, on Monday said the schools were told earlier this month by the Education Bureau that they could not operate Primary One classes in the next academic year as they had failed to meet the minimum threshold of 16 students. It was previously reported that only one school had fallen short of the requirement.
