Arrangements for Secondary in the event of a T8 signal tomorrow (Wednesday 19th August)

Dear Secondary Families,


There is currently a T3 severe weather warning in place and the Hong Kong Observatory is considering raising this to a T8 overnight. If this happens and a T8 is still in place by 6am, the school campus will be closed for all staff tomorrow.


As we have started the term with our online home learning programme, we are planning to continue with this in the same manner  tomorrow. Your child should log into their respective Google Classrooms, and the associated Google Meets as they have been doing since school has restarted. Their Google Calendar has their timetable for tomorrow as normal including their tutor time at 8:25 am. If they have any questions please encourage them to ask their tutor during tutor time tomorrow.


We are aiming to deliver online lessons as planned tomorrow wherever possible, however with a T8 in place, some changes may be inevitable.  Please be mindful that most of our Secondary teaching team have been leading lessons from the school campus. Our teachers are very focused on continuing to deliver the highest quality provision of online learning. However if they are not able to come into school tomorrow, we ask for your patience and understanding if the Google Meet sessions do not run as smoothly as normal as internet connections may not be as stable as they are when teachers are in school. 


Should there be a T3 signal or lower in place by 6am tomorrow, our teachers will offer the full online home learning programme as planned. We kindly ask for your understanding should changes need to be made to your child’s timetable tomorrow and thank you in advance for your flexibility and support. 


Please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected] should you have any questions or concerns.


Kind regards,

Simon Oakley

Head of Secondary
