Universities are also required to extend student leave.

This move came after Hong Kong’s education sector came under great pressure from parents and teachers.

Hong Kong students had to interrupt their studies for the second time, after a protest in November 2019.

Teacher Fong-chak, Vice President of the Hong Kong Professional Teachers’ Union, said that the move to close schools was correct but should have come earlier so schools could prepare better.

Lawmaker Ip Kin-yuen said the move would not only affect schools but also other service providers such as buses and lunch providers.

In addition, extending the closing time of schools after the Lunar New Year also affects the learning and exams of students because the country had to close schools once during the protests last month.

Teddy Tang Chun-keung, President of the Association of Secondary School Principals, is especially concerned for those who will take the university entrance exam this year.

Education sector leader representative Kevin Yeung Yun-hung called on schools to cancel exams for lower grades and switch to online learning.
