    Message from Belinda Greer

    Dear Parents,

    The decision to suspend face-to-face classes in kindergartens and primary schools until the Lunar New Year holiday was disappointing news to us all.

    Our primary and kindergarten teachers, together with our support teams, all have the skills and determination to make sure that any disruption to learning is kept to a minimum.

    And so, today, across ESF, our kindergartens and primary schools moved back to remote learning, and whilst secondary schools remain open for face-to-face learning, social-distancing measures have been tightened.

    We are once again navigating uncharted waters, and I wish I could reassure you that things will be back to normal soon, but, as we are all aware, that is just not possible to predict. As we have over the last two years, we shall maintain our focus on three key things: the safety of your children and staff, assuring the positive impact of our work, and working together effectively.

    Our priority remains ensuring your children continue to learn, no matter what.

    Your ongoing support is very much appreciated.

    Message from Belinda Greer

    Dear Parents,

    As you may have heard already, the Education Bureau (EDB) has announced that from and including Friday, 14 January, all primary schools and kindergartens will have to move to remote learning until at least the Chinese New Year holiday.

    Our primary school and kindergarten staff have been preparing for this eventuality. They have arrangements in place to ensure that children's learning will continue. I know from recent conversations how unwelcome this news will be to the parents of primary and kindergarten children. We will ensure that we are ready to revert to face-to-face learning and teaching as soon as it is possible.

    You can be assured that ESF staff will continue to do their absolute best to make sure that any disruption to children's learning is minimised.

    As soon as there are any changes or further announcements from EDB, I will, of course, get back in touch with you to share arrangements.

    Under present EDB regulations, students in secondary schools should continue to attend school as normal. As always, the safety of students and staff remains our prime concern. We will continue to take stringent measures to look after students' welfare.

    Best wishes

    Dear Parents

    Again, what a week it has been!

    With so much happening, it’s hard to believe that this is still just the first week back after the holiday.

    We all welcome the decision to keep schools open for face-to-face learning. Nothing is more important to us than ensuring that your children continue to thrive in a safe learning environment. The ESF Crisis Management Team and the principals remain focused on ensuring social-distancing measures are in
    place and our school sites are kept safe. To this end, we have now stopped movement between schools and paused any after-school activities led by external parties. Through strictly controlling entry onto our school sites, we are seeking to create a safe ‘school bubble’ in each of our schools.

    Given that education is, at heart, a social activity I understand that reverting to tighter social-distancing measures is not the direction we want to be taking. However, measures to keep our schools open for face-to-face learning at least bring a much-needed sense of normality for your children.

    As I said in my earlier message this week, we will continue to work hard to ensure that every moment in school has a positive impact, and counts for our learners.

    As ever, I would thank you for your ongoing support.
