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.

Po Leung Kuk CKY is an amazing school! They have a special and fun way of teaching students. To teach discipline in their school, CKY uses something called “Star points” or “Group Points”. The higher the points are, the better the reward they will have! In PLKCKY, every child is good at something.

As a student studied here through Y1 to Y12, I genuinely have no idea where the hates in comment section come from. I graduated 10 years ago and never experienced any academic stress in CKY. Most of the teachers back in my time have probably left already so it's quite pointless to comment about specific teachers. I enjoyed the culture in campus, students are nice, too nice somehow, it was like they were the flowers in a warm house, never faced the dark side of the society. Above average academic achievement, decent amount of homework and exam. No smoker, drugs nor serious bullying spotted in my life is CKY, and trust me, I would know if they existed. I think parents would be glad if their kids join CKY. But afterall, who am I to comment? I'm just an outdated graduate.

CKY is a super bad place, ask me how I know? I work here. Most of the staff are lazy, incompetent, untrained, poorly educated and some are corrupt. Mistreatment of staff is commonplace, in fact if you are not being abused or mistreated there must be something wrong. They make up salary scales for people and make it impossible to leave. Its like a gulag. Management is very bad and purely self-serving. Students are good strangely....

Very good school to combine the benefit of both Chinese and Western learning culture.

Po Leung Kuk Choi Kai Yau School is a school of great ambition. Well that is what it used to be. The school now has changed into something it sweared it never wanted to be, a machine like prison, forcing students through tireless work. I am a student of the senior secondary levels and observed how gruelling it can be in the Primary section. However IGCSE teachings in our school is incredible, even though there are a lot of training and after school sessions, the teachers really care about us and try their very best. But the quality of teachers in CKY is so inconsistent. We have a huge ratio between good and successful teachers with those who can barely teach a class. I don’t really want to name names, but one of them caused an entire class to not get a single A in IGCSE. Our school teachers have a bias towards female students, especially female Chinese teachers. Which I think is extremely unfair. Moreover, our facilities are a little aged, despite being quite a young school, our windows, bookcases and tables can be easily worn out. But overall, CKY is not some god tier school like many rumoured it to be, it’s a pretty average school that is facing massive change. It makes me really wonder, is it worth it to attend this school with the risk of having bad teachers? Quality of education is what’s most valued after all. Also on an unrelated note, our school implemented a better security system and fixed the basketball court, but there is a lot more facilities that needs maintenance. Basketballs and volleyballs are insufficient and also extremely old, which is unable to support those training in teams.

As an ex-student who has studied up until igcse curriculum, i’d say this school is terrible.

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.
