Weather Warnings

Typhoon And Heavy Rain Procedures

Here are the school guidelines for bad weather warnings like typhoons and heavy rain. However, please consider safety first when deciding whether to proceed to our kindergarten as we know that certain areas of Hong Kong may experience more severe weather.
