  • For some students, back to school after months

Face-to-face classes resumed in a limited manner in some Hong Kong schools – for the first time since the summer break.

The Education Bureau has begun allowing schools to take a maximum of one-sixth of their pupils in for half-day activities, ahead of a phased class resumption next week.

The bureau had said some secondary, primary as well as kindergarten 3 classes will resume face-to-face classes, with some safety precautions, on September 23, while the remaining classes will resume on September 29.

A secondary school in Chai Wan said it's arranged Form Six students to return for their school-based assessment and preparations for their university entrance exams.

It has also asked Form Five visual arts students to attend face-to-face make-up classes on Wednesday afternoon.

One Form Six student told RTHK that she's nervous to be back at school after two months and worried about her progress because she hasn't been doing exam paper drills.

She also said she had to get up an hour earlier to travel to the school.

The student said that although the timetables for classes remain the same, face-to-face learning is more serious and pressure is greater.
