Education Bureau probing school

August 08, 2017

The Education Bureau is helping Hing Tak School to improve its operation in the wake of media reports about its administration irregularities.


Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung made the statement to the media today, saying the bureau has appointed six managers to the school’s Incorporated Management Committee to ensure its proper operation.


The Tuen Mun school was alleged to have "phantom students", who were absent for extended periods of time, on its register in a bid to boost enrolment.


Mr Yeung said the investigation into the school is ongoing.


"I think since February we have been receiving complaints from different sectors of the community, basically about the relationship between the school management and the teachers.


"Initially we started our mediation work between the management and the teachers. As time goes by, we gathered more information and we also have more information provided by other people.


"So in the past six months or so, we have been working closely with different people. And we have been working hard to find out what are the reasons behind and whether there are any irregularities in the school management."
