Coronavirus Update: Monday 27th January 2020
I would like to bring you up-to-date on school plans and the latest information available to us as
we respond to the requests of the Chengdu Education Bureau. I would ask that you check your
mail regularly as we will continue to update as we receive new information.
At present, the school is set to re-open to all year groups on Monday 17th February 2020.
From Monday 3rd February until Friday 14th February, staff will be providing e-learning
opportunities and work for students to support their continued learning. There will doubtless be
challenges involved, but we are keen to focus upon the learning of students as a priority. We
expect students to participate and complete the learning tasks set and welcome your support in
helping your child to engage in them. For primary pupils, teachers will communicate activities
using SeeSaw, so please look out for these on your SeeSaw App. Secondary students will receive
their work via Managebac and/or email from the class teacher.
For Grade 12 students, we will contact the IBO and exam boards so that they are aware of the
circumstances and we anticipate they will work with us should we need to change deadlines.
Please be assured our skilled and experienced team will ensure your child is fully prepared and
remains on track for their examinations this summer.
We will also need to cancel some trips out of the school. We will provide details of these in the
weeks ahead, but at this stage, I can confirm that Nord Anglia Regional Events, including our two
STEAM Festivals (Beijing & Puxi) and Volleyball (Beijing) will be cancelled, as well as our ACAMIS
Basketball tournament in Wuxi. We are also looking to delay the start of clubs in order to
minimise the number of external visitors to our campus. Our operational team will be working to
ensure that additional deep cleaning of the school campus takes place so that we are fully
prepared to accept students when the school re-opens.
Meanwhile, the Parent/Teacher Conference on February 17 will be rescheduled later.
Thank you for your patience and support during this time and I do wish you and your family a
happy and healthy Chinese New Year.

We have received guidance from the Chengdu Education Bureau that schools within Chengdu shall postpone the start of school after the Chinese New Year celebration. We will therefore remain closed until the 17th of February due to the recent Corona virus outbreak.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep you updated as frequently as possible.
In the meantime, we will begin to make arrangements regarding continued provision for students, especially those with upcoming examinations.
On Monday we will issue further information regarding all practical arrangements.
