Parents are reminded to scan the “LeaveHomeSafe” QR code and display their vaccination records (either a paper vaccination record, electronic vaccination record, or the Exemption Certificate) to our staff when they enter into the school premises. If parents cannot show the record, they will not be allowed to enter the school. For the location of the Main Gate, please refer to the photos below (Photos 2 & 3).

The interview will take around one hour. Parents will pick up their children at the Indoor Gym on 2/F (Photo 4). Parents MUST show our teachers their child’s student card or student handbook in order to pick up their child at the specified time and cooperate with the crowd control measures arranged by our school.

Due to a large number of applicants, please use public transportation as far as possible. For location of public parking, please refer to the map below (Photo 1). The school would like to make an appeal to parents to avoid parking illegally. To consider the safety of pedestrians and other road users, please do NOT stop or park your vehicle in a restricted area as it will cause severe traffic problems.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
