UPDATE: Contingency measures against Novel Coronavirus for all Kumon Education Centres (effective immediately until 1st March, 2020)
Hong Kong and Macau
In view of the rising number of confirmed cases of the Novel Coronavirus, all Kumon classes will be suspended with immediate effect until 1st March, 2020 (i.e., this suspension of classes is aligned with the guidelines from the Education Bureau) with the following details:
To encourage students to "Keep Moving Forward During Class Suspension", with immediate effect until March 01, 2020, all Kumon education centres will provide correspondence learning to our students. Our instructors will proactively communicate with our parents in discussing the study progress and homework exchange arrangement.
In order to catch up with the school progress and cope with the heavy school works after school resumes, a systematic learning system which can help to maintain a good learning habit and consolidate the academic ability of our child is needed during the school suspension period.
With the systematic design of the Worksheet and individualized instruction and progress setting, Kumon Method of learning can effectively help our students to maintain good learning habit and consolidate academic ability during the school suspension.
Parents shall be assured of the feasibility of learning at home. Our instructors will closely communicate with parents regarding the weekly homework progress setting.
Above all, Kumon Method of Learning promotes self-learning instead of “being taught” by instructors. Through the systematic design of worksheets and guidance of instructors, Kumon students can develop the self-learning attitude and ability by completing sets of well-designed worksheets individually arranged by our experienced instructors.
All Kumon Education Centres will remain opened during the suspension period for all enquiries, homework exchange and other administrative work. Please be noted that ALL centres will NOT open for any classes.
Regarding the arrangement of make-up classes, parents are welcome to communicate with our instructors. The make-up classes will be arranged properly according to the situation after the resume of Kumon Class.
Kumon Hong Kong will closely monitor the updated situation of the epidemic and all Kumon Education Centres will keep taking precautionary measures to combat against the Epidemic. Parents can refer to our official websites and Kumon Facebook from time to time for the most updated news or arrangements.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for your cooperation.
