There may be instances when a child may have fallen behind in his/her education due to illness etc. If this is the case, the School may offer a place in a year lower than the child’s age would normally imply. There will be Consultations from parents or guardians before such an offer is made, but the decision as to the appropriate year for the child, taking into account all the relevant circumstances, is a matter for the Principal, whose decision is final.
In accordance with regulations as stipulated by the Education Bureau and Immigration Department, all pupils joining GIS must possess a valid Hong Kong ID card, allowing unconditional stay, or must have a valid passport with authorized residency status to be eligible for a place at GIS.
