Dear Students and Parents,
We hope everyone is keeping safe and had a chance to enjoy the Easter break. We are pleased to report that all our staff is well and held a staff meeting online last Sunday to discuss various ways to continue our lessons this term.
Our lessons this term will resume this Sunday 26 April 2020. Most of our teachers will deliver the lessons online, while the others will send out learning materials with homework (and marking) via email / WhatsApp.
End of year exam will be scheduled after the half-term break, speaking / listening exams will be held on 14/21 June 2020 and written exam will be held on 28 June 2020. Parents Consultation will be postponed till 05 and 12 July 2020. Your teachers will send out the schedules nearer the time.
Due to the Spring Term being interrupted, we have decided to adjust the assessment weighting to reflect the impact on students’ performance. Autumn Term at 60%, Spring Term at 10% and Summer Term at 30%. We continue to ask all parents to assist your child(ren) with home learning where possible throughout this term.
Lastly, in preparation for the next academic year, there are a few teaching vacancies for both Cantonese (traditional Chinese) and Mandarin (simplified Chinese) classes. If you are interested, please contact school office at [email protected].
