Health Update March 12, 2020 (Please read very carefully)
Aitchison College has requested authorities to close all schools a further two weeks, thereby extending the Spring Break to at least Friday, March 27. In the event that this extended general quarantine is not approved, we can hold Senior Mock examinations as planned in three large spaces ( Senior School, the Old Building and SKH) to ensure that there is maximum seating space between boys.
However, any boy with symptoms of the flu (cough or fever) will not be allowed entry into the Examination Halls. Mock examinations are important but health is more important. As the Mocks are still days away, we may cancel closer to the event depending on further advice that comes to hand. Boys should keep studying.
There are some basic precautions to note. Boys should not shake hands as is the custom at Aitchison. Boarders with a temperature or cough must not return to school unless cleared. The school doctors will be on call. These are just sensible precautions.
Junior School and Prep School day and boarding boys (not Pre C1 who should attend as seniors for classes) should take another week off school returning Tuesday March 24. We will reassess the situation before then. Homework can be obtained from the portals for Junior and Prep boys shortly. Teachers will address homework on return to school.
