Review & Outlook

Dear supporters:

We wish you good health, happiness and peace in 2024!

Progress of Achieving School Building Mission

Since its inauguration in 2013, PLA has been working hard to provide professional cognitive and psychological assessment, training and counselling to identify and expand the ‘potentials’ and ‘strengths’ of children and adolescents, in order to ameliorate their different learning disabilities and enhance their quality of life.

One of PLA’s missions is to build high-tech schools (kindergarten, primary school and secondary school), to provide high quality education for children and adolescents with learning disabilities.

As early as in 2013 when the Association was set up, PLA started to apply for building the school. In 2018, PLA received the District Land Office, Tai Po’s allocation of a piece of Government land in Wai Tau Village of Tai Po for lease by the Association for building a kindergarten. Unfortunately, in view of villagers’ objection in 2020, PLA had to seek another site.

In 2022, PLA secured the District Land Office’s allocation of another piece of Government land in Ting Kok Village of Tai Po with an area of about 3,000 square metres for lease by the Association for building the kindergarten. Then, in March of the same year, PLA was granted a subsidy of HK$60 million by the Development Bureau for building the kindergarten. Consequently, we were able to resume in mid-2022 planning the construction of the kindergarten.

Apart from the Development Bureau’s subsidy, our budget for starting the kindergarten still needs fundraising to the tune of HK$90 million (including funds for buying and producing textbooks and teaching materials, purchasing high-tech and artificial intelligence teaching equipment, provisions for a Green Campus, fitting-out costs and the first-month operating expenses of the kindergarten).
