Parents tell lawmakers about school closure
(02-25 14:59)

A group representing parents and children from an international school that faces closure has lodged a complaint against the government with the Legislative Council.
The school's lease expires in July, and they have yet to secure an extension.
Parents say that if the school were to close, 350 students would have nowhere to go.
Legislators from the Legco's Public Complaints Office said they would arrange a meeting with the Education Bureau. --RTHK
