Message from the Principal about start of spring term Monday 4 January

Thursday, 31 December 2020


Dear RCHK Family,

I hope that you and your family enjoyed the gorgeous weather here in Hong Kong for what was for many a staycation this holiday season. As we ring in 2021 tomorrow, let’s envision a world healed from Covid-19.

I wanted to quickly update you on the status of the return to school scheduled for next week. As you already know, EDB has postponed the resumption of face to face classes at least until the 11th of January for all year groups except those sitting for external examinations. That means that all Primary students and Secondary students in Years 7-12 will resume online lessons beginning Monday the 4th of January and continue until EDB says otherwise.


EDB has sanctioned the return to school for half-day sessions only for our Y13 students since we anticipate them to sit for IBDP exams in May. Beginning on Monday the 4th, Y13 students will be taking mock exams over an eight-day schedule which is individual to each student and the courses they are taking.


We hope that we will soon be able to welcome all students back safely to classes at school with their teachers and friends.


Best wishes for a healthy, prosperous, and joyful 2021!


Dr. Harry Brown
The Principal
