Primary One School on South Lantau

Hi, Can anyone help me, My family are moving to Hong kong in march this year (Short notice)We Just missed out on South Lantau International School so Don't have a school place in september for our Son William, What can we Do? No company assistance is given at all for school places and DB is a bit of a trip to make as we will be living in Mui Wo (we are simple country folk at heart)Are there any Schools suitable on Lantau? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help us.

Lantau schools

Hi Anon;

So far as I know, the only international school choices on Lantau Island are Lantau International School in Tung Chung (which is a fairly short drive/bus ride from Mui Wo) or Discovery Bay International School.

You may want to check out this prospectus on international schools in HK from the Education Bureau.

Readers, do you know of any other options?

Lists of pre-school / nurseries / kindergartens in Hong Kong

Anonymous, a Google search gave a couple of options:

 - Victoria Caplan's Education and Child Care in Hong Kong
 - Wikipedia's list
 - GeoBaby's section on Education

school lists

As far as I know there are 2 published in HK each year for the english speaking community.  One by the SCMP ( and one by the Playtimes parenting magazine (

I'm not sure about the local schools 

Thanks for lists links!

Thanks, Gweipo -- those are two very useful links. The SCMP guide seems to be made available briefly each year on the SCMP website, then is taken down again. I've not seen the other book, but it could be quite useful if you're looking for international schools.

For local schools, the best information in English seems to be at HKEdcity. You can see my annotated links if you scroll down to the end of this article, or you can go straight to the HKEdcity site.
