Face-to-face classes to resume
Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung today announced that schools will resume face-to-face lessons on a half-day basis in two phases from September 23.
Speaking to reporters this afternoon, Mr Yeung pointed out that the epidemic has recently subsided.
International and special schools will broadly follow the same timetable, he added.
“We always have to balance between the health of the students and the education needs of the students. And after the class resumption in May and June this year, we are confident that schools are able to carry on teaching and learning at schools safely.
“This time we decided to allow the face-to-face lessons covering the whole spectrum of students from kindergartens to senior secondary schools. That of course will require the co-operation between the schools, the parents and students."
Mr Yeung pointed out that even kindergarten students should learn how to protect themselves from the virus.
