Internal Financial Assistance Scheme

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Life-Wide Learning Fund
In past years, our school has offered support to students in need, in applying to the Hong Kong Jockey Club Life-Wide Learning Fund for financial support to participate in different extra-curricular activities. The Fund covers all S1 to S7 students who are:
(i) receiving “Comprehensive Social Security Scheme” (CSSA), or
(ii) receiving a full grant under the “Student Financial Assistance Scheme” (SFAS), or
(iii) meeting the school’s established “financially needy” criteria.
 
Students would still be considered as meeting the condition (iii) if school had a good understanding and knowledge of their actual financial difficulties, however, they are not willing to provide evidence on their CSSA status or family economic background. Owing to the abrupt changes in the economic situation, it is expected that more students are possibly meeting the Fund’s criteria. Therefore, the school would utilize the fund effectively and make sure every student is not deprived of the opportunities in joining Life-wide Learning activities due to economic constraints.
