About Po Leung Kuk Choi Kai Yau School (PLKCKY)


Po Leung Kuk Choi Kai Yau School (PLKCKY) is a through-train private independent school for boys and girls aged 6–18, ranging from primary through to International Baccalaureate Diploma students(IB). Situated in Cheung Sha Wan near Golden Hill, CKY is a school with approximately 1,300 students. The school opened and moved into its new campus in September 2009.

CKY believes every child is unique and every child has different potentials. Therefore, we should neither turn them into identical products, not should we limit their ability to coping with examinations only. CKY mission is to develop and educate children holistically so that they will not only know how to learn, but rather how to live and lead a life of joy, health and success. CKY operates a co-tutor system for the Primary Section, providing a natural bilingual environment. Students study themes in both Chinese and English.

CKY believes that each child loves learning and has different potentials. Provided that their interest is stimulated, that they are given appropriate guidance, that they are given opportunities to develop their confidence, that they are cared for and constantly encouraged, they will become outstanding people.

The school is okay, except for some of the teachers and most of secondary. The fees are pretty high and I agree that the facilities are probably one of the best (except the fans and some other things that have been there before I was even born) The management system is confusing and I suggest they improve their admin system. Many good teachers are leaving, so I don't know what it would be like in a few years. The students achieve high grades in music. Additionally, their orchestras and band teams are high quality. However, the WiFi has a peculiar boundary of not working after you pass the IT room (which, in my opinion, is pretty annoying at times). For their sports, they have a swimming gala, sports day and such special events occurring every now and then. The students there have high expectations from their teachers. They have changed slowly from one of the kindest, most supportive and fun learning places to an average school with nice facilities. The primary section is decent, yet the secondary section has been getting worse every year. I believe that the school is fine if you would like to send your children to the primary section, but please do not hesitate to pull them out of school as soon as they enter secondary.

This is school is why I'm depressed and have social anxiety. It made me feel so insecure about my grades. Luckily I made a few nice friends who helped me through it. But please parents who are reading this review, don't enroll your child in this school. You will literally ruin their life and waste your own money. Btw secondary teaching and management staff is an absolute joke, students get good grades because they are going to intensive classes outside of school. That is the only reason.

When I joined this school, I was greeted with enthusiasm and cheers. The teachers were great, and that lead to me achieving greater recognition in later life. I love this school, and will send my kids there in the future.

Primary is nice, but secondary school is pretty bad. Good teachers who actually bother to teach( and actually put some effort in ) are leaving, and new teachers that are lazy get way higher salary than the good teachers( I heard ). Most students are depressed once they get to secondary. Also to mention the school fee is crazy high, and students aren't even going to actual school due to coronavirus. The students might be academically smart, but they don't learn morals from this school, and most are rude and don't know how to work under pressure/bad circumstances. They are so used to having a high quality environment. facilities are fine, but in terms of music, arts, and sports, this school is not really great at that.Students can be pretty competitive and students with average grades will have a lot of pressure.

Best possible school in the universe, virtual reality classroom, 4D learning experience, amazing teachers, and futuristic school facilities. Such as 4D printer, teleportor, jet pack school bags. Students end up with a average IQ of 400, and become leaders of the world.

Very poor organisation to work for. You will be treated like trash and regularly abused by the so called management. Kids are ok but the leadership and HR are awful. Many breaches of employment law. Best avoided.

Dubious HR practices. Most of the teachers are not qualified teachers. Bad place to attempt to have a career.
