In case of an absolute emergency, when neither parent can be contacted, a member of our staff will accompany the child to the Emergency Unit of the Hong Kong Adventist Hospital in Stubbs Road.

Typhoons and Heavy Rainstorms

The Education Bureau decides when to close kindergartens and schools during typhoons and heavy rainstorms.

Parents should listen to the radio or television (or consult the EDB website) to receive such announcements on the closure of schools and the kindergarten and for the latest weather updates.

The kindergarten will close when:

Teacher Communication

We encourage you to make an appointment with the class teacher to discuss your child's progress, or any school-related problems. Parents are requested not to discuss such matters with the teacher when children are entering or leaving the school.

Do notify the school if your family has moved to a new address. It would help us contact you in an emergency.

The school will organize school outings periodically. Notification letter will be sent home with details of the planned excursion. Parents are welcome to assist and join us on these outings. However, such trips will be cancelled at short notice should there be a change in the weather.
