Statement issued by HKAHSS on “Safeguard the Well-Being of Our Students”


  1. The Executive Committee of The Hong Kong Association of the Heads of Secondary Schools (HKAHSS) is gravely concerned about the dispute arising from the “Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Legislation (Amendment) Bill 2019” and its impact on the physical and mental development of students.


  1. School is a place for students to learn and develop. Students should be given the opportunity to exercise their critical thinking and judgement, respect diversity, learn to communicate and live in harmony.  We do not support class boycott by teachers or students as a means to express their views.


  1. We sincerely urge the government to defer the bill and listen to the public opinion extensively to avoid further social confrontation.


  1. As responsible educators, we call for our fellow workers to be steadfast in duty and safeguard the well-being of our students.

  1. 學校是促進學生學習和成長的地方,讓學生有機會慎思明辨、尊重多元和溝通共融,我們不贊成師生以罷課表達訴求。


  1. 我們深盼政府暫緩立法,廣泛聆聽民意,避免社會對立惡化。


  1. 作為負責任的教育工作者,我們呼籲教育同工謹守崗位,守護學生褔祉。
