Playtime cut for pupils in noise dispute

Children at a Lantau school hit with a noise-abatement order that has just been upheld by the High Court will have their playtime shortened by 15 minutes.

According to a notice posted on the gates of Lantau International School (LIS) when children left at 3pm yesterday they will be able to play for only 30 instead of 45 minutes.

Takeoff for quiet Lantau school

It doesn't look like an international school - more like a building site, with the top two floors derelict and no signs to identify it. In the midst of low-rise houses in a quiet south Lantau village, the three-storey building that houses Lantau International School's Pui O campus is unremarkable. Built in 1978 as the Sea Breeze Hotel, it was later abandoned.

Comparison of the incomparable

Is the recent comparison of ESF schools with Lantau International School (LIS) by the education chief in Education Post last Saturday credible? As a parent who has had children attend both schools I consider the comparison lacking in substance. ESF primary schools cater for approximately 5,800 students, LIS caters for 60.
