According to the Education Bureau, as the Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal no. 3 is now in force, classes of kindergartens, schools for children with physical disability and schools for children with intellectual disability are suspended today(10/8). Students are suggested to stay in a safe venue. Schools will implement contingency plan and arrange staff to look after students who might arrive and ensure that conditions are safe before allowing students to return home.
For the foregoing purposes, the delegated authority of the Permanent Secretary for Education has given a written permission under section 83(6)(a)(ii) of the Education Ordinance (Cap. 279) to those school staff and students who need to enter or remain in the school premises during the period of suspension due to operational need or safety reason.
