Up to 170 students need to find new school places after the government closed down an international school in Kowloon.
The Education Bureau has suspended all lessons at the Tsung Tsin Think Academy in Cheung Sha Wan because the Think International Schools Group had not registered its operations there. The group, which had rented the site from Tsung Tsin Middle School, has not officially registered the name of Tsung Tsin Think Academy.
Secretary for Education, Mr Kevin Yeung said: "We carried out an inspection last Friday and found that there is an operation of a school without registration and our approval. So immediately we asked them to stop the operation, and the next step that we have to do is to find school places for those students affected."
The Think group, which also owns four kindergartens and Think International School, plans to move some of the affected primary students to its Boundary Street school campus in Kowloon. And, according to the South Morning China Post, an agreement has been reached for some of the secondary students to take up normal places at Tsung Tsin Middle School.
