跨境師生暫停回澳上課 具有條件的學校可提前開始春節假期

轉自教育青年發展局:

因應珠海的疫情不斷發展,昨天管控區增加,為配合防疫措施,經與衛生部門溝通,認為進一步減少跨境師生往返珠澳,對減低疫情風險有正面作用,對整體防疫有利,因此,教青局宣布高等教育及非高等教育的跨境師生自1月21日(星期五)起暫停回澳上課,至春節假期結束。

同時,教青局收到多間學校的查詢,表示本周考試結束後將有條件提前放春節假期,經分析,考慮到約有八成的非高等教育學校將於本周內完成學期考試,有條件提前開始春節假期,對學校全年的整體課程安排影響不大;對於有照顧困難的家長,學校可為其小學三年級及以下學生提供友善措施;至於其餘兩成於下周仍有考試安排的學校,校方可自行決定繼續考試,或提前開始春節假期並延後考試安排。

至於本澳高等院校,現時並非屬於考試周,明天至下周初亦將陸續開始春節假期,而院校亦會視乎自身情況調整安排,包括將面授課堂調整為以線上方式進行,或提前開始春節假期。

With the continuous development of the epidemic situation in Zhuhai, the number of control areas increased yesterday. In order to cooperate on the epidemic prevention measures, after communicating with the health department, it is believed that further reducing cross-border teachers’ and students’ commute between Zhuhai and Macao will have a positive impact on reducing the risk of the epidemic and help with the overall epidemic prevention. Therefore, the DSEDJ announced that cross-border teachers and students of tertiary education institutions and non-tertiary education schools will not return to Macao for classes temporarily from January 21 (Friday) until the end of the Spring Festival holiday.

At the same time, the DSEDJ has received inquiries from several schools, indicating that after the completion of exams this week, they will be able to start the Spring Festival holiday earlier. After analysis, it is considered that about 80% of the non-tertiary education schools will finish term exams within this week and can have Spring Festival holiday earlier, which will not have a big impact on the school’s overall curriculum arrangement throughout the year. For parents who have difficulty taking care of their children, schools can provide friendly measures for students in grade three and below. As for the remaining 20% of the schools that still have exam arrangements for next week, they have the discretion to continue the exams, or to start the Spring Festival holiday earlier and defer the exams.

As for the tertiary education institutions in Macao, it is currently not the exam period. Starting from today until the beginning of next week, the institutions will begin the Spring Festival holiday. They will also adjust their arrangements according to their own circumstances, including adjusting face-to-face classes to online teaching or start the Spring Festival holiday earlier than scheduled.
