The Education Bureau today announced all kindergartens, as well as primary and secondary schools, will further suspend face-to-face classes and school activities until January 10. 

Tutorial schools will also suspend face-to-face classes during the period.

The bureau said the Government needs to continue to take stringent measures to cope with the COVID-19 epidemic as the situation remains severe.

It noted that during the period, schools should continue to adopt diversified modes of teaching to facilitate students to continue learning at home.

Similar to the arrangements before the Christmas holidays, schools can consider arranging Primary 6 students to return to schools to take the internal assessment for the Secondary School Places Allocation.

Schools can also arrange Secondary 6 classes or classes participating in this academic year’s overseas public examinations to return to schools to attend lessons to prepare for the examinations or take internal examinations.

The examinations or face-to-face classes should be conducted on a half-day basis.

The upper limit for students to return to a school should be capped at one-sixth of the school’s maximum permitted capacity.
