More primary places for cross-border students
(12-19 13:09)

The Education Bureau has made arrangements for about 2,800 cross-border students to take part in the central allocation system for primary school places in the next school year.
The Under Secretary for Education, Kevin Yeung, said this should significantly relieve pressure on primary school places in the North District.
The Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong welcomed the move. Its Vice-chairman, legislator Starry Lee, said it should ease the burden in North District and help distribute students evenly to other schools. --RTHK
