Teachers Day holiday

Checked the MOE web page, no mention has been made about the extra holidays. Wonder how each schools handle this.

No, there should not be extra holiday since it's already a holiday but I do agree the celebration can be on 31st Aug before school close for Sep holiday.

7 Sep has been marked as a Teachers' Day holiday. Thought it should be 31st Aug instead :?

There is a recent change in the date of Teacher's Day (1st Friday of Sep) & Children's Day(1st Fri of Oct).

There's a grp of PV who planned a celebration for for my kids school teachers on 7/9/12.
They are putting up performances....for the teachers.
But I wonder if the teachers would be happy to return to school during the school holiday.

Looks like MOE has to rethink Teachers' Day date because the first Friday in Sep is typically the school holiday...

my son's school will celebrate on 31/8, just a day after their last Prelim paper so the sec 4 can have a well deserved break with their teachers.
