Canadian Overseas International College

Probe school collapse

I am pleased that arrangements have been made to accommodate pupils and staff of the Canadian Overseas International College, which closed last month.

Against priority plea

As a parent of a child affected by the sudden closure of the Canadian Overseas International College, I could not agree more with the letter headlined 'Bankrupt school's children cannot be put on top of waiting list' (South China Morning Post, October 31).

Parents cannot expect special treatment

I am appalled by the unreasonable demands made by some parents of students from the closed Canadian Overseas International College.

Further-education complaints up by 550pc: watchdog

Consumer Council complaints about further-education services have risen by 550 per cent from 215 last year to 1,399 for the first nine months of this year.

The findings follow the closure of the Canadian Overseas International College on Friday, which left 381 students stranded.

Pay by the month

As a principal of a private school, I think the settlement of yearly school fees by 12 instalments is the most effective way to discipline a private school's financial operation. This practice prevents school heads from acting rapaciously and opportunistically.

Bankrupt school's children cannot be put on top of waiting list

I found the arguments put forward by parents of students from the defunct Canadian Overseas International College absurd. They say their children did not have spaces in the education system, so they demand that they be placed only in schools run by the English Schools Foundation (ESF).
