The results of Primary One Central Allocation to be posted to parents from June 1 to June 2
The results of the Central Allocation of Primary One Admission (POA) 2022 will be sent to parents by post next Wednesday and Thursday (June 1 to June 2). Parents who completed a Choice of Schools Form for the Central Allocation on January 22 or January 23 this year will receive the Primary One Registration Form delivered by post from June 1 to June 2 through the Local CourierPost service provided by Hongkong Post. If attempt of door delivery by Hongkong Post fails or buildings concerned with residents tested positive results for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, a “Mail Collection Notification Card” will be left for parents to collect it from the designated post office starting from the afternoon of the following working day. If parents have not received the Primary One Registration Form by June 3, they could collect the Primary One Registration Form at the designated collection centre from June 4 to June 5 (please refer to the EDB’s Primary One Admission System webpage for details then). In addition, if parents have provided a mobile phone number on the Choice of Schools Form and indicated their consent to receive the Central Allocation results via the mobile phone number, they will also receive the results of their applicant children via SMS message on June 1.
Registration with the school allocated
In light of the development of the COVID-19 epidemic situation, the EDB will assign timeslots for parents to register with the allocated school on June 7 (Tuesday) or June 8 (Wednesday) according to the last digit of the applicant children’s POA application number so as to reduce the gathering of parents. Parents are requested to complete the registration formalities within the specified date and time as listed on the Arrangements on Registration attached to the Primary One Registration Form. Parents who cannot proceed with the registration within the specified date and time can register on June 9 (Thursday) instead, from 9am to 12pm or 2pm to 4pm.
As the Vaccine Pass arrangement has been implemented from 24 February 2022, except for exempted persons, all school staff, persons providing on-campus services and visitors have to present vaccination record for the purpose of the Vaccine Pass and use the “LeaveHomeSafe” mobile application to scan the venue QR code before they are allowed to enter schools.
Parents who cannot register their child with the school on the above dates due to matters of grave importance should notify the person in charge of registration of the school concerned in advance to make alternative arrangements; otherwise, they would be deemed to have given up the school place allocated.
Due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on cross-boundary travel, parents of applicant children in the Mainland or outside Hong Kong may not be able to register with their respective allocated schools in person. In view of this, the EDB has made special arrangements for these parents. They could register with their allocated school by fax, email or post, or authorise a representative to register with the school on their behalf on the specified registration dates. The EDB has already informed all parents of applicant children concerned about the special arrangements.
Should the territory be affected by adverse weather or other special circumstances during the period for the announcement of results or on any day(s) designated for registration, parents should listen to announcements on radio and television for special arrangements for Central Allocation or registration.
