Grant Scheme on Promoting Effective English Language Learning in Primary Schools

With the support of SCOLAR and subsidy from the Language Fund, the Education Bureau launches a Grant Scheme on Promoting Effective English Language Learning in Primary Schools in the 2017/18 school year. The time-limited Grant is to help schools develop their school-based English enhancement measures to further promote effective English language learning.

All aided (including special schools with primary section adopting the ordinary school curriculum), government or Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) primary schools may submit their applications in the 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19 or 2019/20 school year. With the maximum grant capped at $350,000, the actual amount of grant for each school would depend on individual schools’ proposals and implementation strategies.

The latest quota on the number of applicant schools for each round is as follows:

2021/22 school year

*Given that schools that are not allocated quotas in the second round have been given the priority to submit their proposals in the third round and are no longer required to submit the reply proformas, the remaining quota of 137 places in the third round will be available for schools’ application on 5 to 9 November 2018.

Schools that wish to implement the school-based curriculum initiatives in the relevant school year should return the completed proformas on “Allocation of Quotas for taking forward the English Language School-based Curriculum Initiatives” to the Education Bureau by fax on the dates indicated in the above table. Please note that only the completed proformas received on the aforementioned dates will be processed.
