Political Protest, 12 June 2019, Update

Island School the ESF and our bus company have been monitoring the traffic situation around Admiralty all day in relation to the protests. The following decisions have been made with your child’s safety in mind.


All after school activities are cancelled today 12 June 2019.

Students who use Public Transport·

The ongoing protest in Admiralty has meant that a number of roads have had to be closed. This means that a lot more people will be using the MTR.

If your child uses the MTR to travel home, it is likely to be much busier than normal – and it may take longer to get home. Students will need to be patient on the way home.

Students who travel by school bus·

We have been in close contact with the bus company and they are able to service every bus drop off. However please note that all buses may be delayed.

Special Arrangements Bus 4a, 4b, 4c and 5

Bus  4a, 4b, 4c will take a different route to normal. This will mean that the normal time of drop off is likely to be different. Students taking the number 5 bus that drop off at the following points will move to bus number 1:

  • Macdonnell Rd 3
  • Macdonnell Rd 96
  • 9A Kennedy Rd
  • Kennedy Rd (Gas Station)
  • Kennedy Rd (Hopewell Centre)
  • Bamboo Grove
  • Tung Shan Terrace Opp

At this point, we do not know if the protest is going to continue beyond today and if it does, what impact it might have on the transport network within the city. We will do all we can to keep school running as normal and alert you of changes in the situation when necessary.
