Education Foundation Important Notice
31 Mar 2020
- Postponement of Activities
In light of the novel coronavirus epidemic situation, for the safety of our guest speakers and participants, the parent talk on Positive Education scheduled for 15 February was postponed. We will keep members informed of the newly proposed date for the seminar.
In addition, as EDB has further extended the suspension of schools to contain the spread of the coronavirus, all LEAP’s sharing sessions and company visits were scheduled to be held from February to April 2020 have been postponed until further notice.
- In view of the rampant novel coronavirus epidemic, the Education Bureau has extended for several times the class suspension. Our Primary School and College have been adopting diversified modes, including online learning, to help students continue their studies at home during the class suspension period so as to achieve the goal of "suspending classes without suspending learning". For example, the College has introduced realtime online lessons with very good results. The forefront practising of online learning has attracted wide media coverage as follows:
