Class FAQ

Attendance

[LEAVE APPLICATION] My child is going to leave Hong Kong for a month to join a study tour, at the same time to visit our relatives overseas with the family. How can I inform HKCC about it? Will applying long leave affect my child's performance?

Leave Application can be submitted to HKCC offices in person or via postal mail or made at HKCC website when member is not able to attend classes due to different reasons. You can also refer to the Calendar of Activities on the Member Handbook for more information about member holidays every year.

Attendance is one of the main factors that HKCC will take into consideration when selecting members to perform and having the annual appraisal of members' performance. Absence for a long period of time will seriously affect member's own learning, as well as his/her ability to corporate with the whole class. Thus, being absent frequently or for a long period of time is not recommended.

[DROP-OFF & PICK-UP] Since sometimes my child is picked up or dropped off by different members of the family, can I apply for an extra Parent Card?

To safeguard the security of our members and avoid chaos during the peak periods of drop-off and pick-up, only one Parent Card will be issued to each member every year. For any lost or damaged card, please apply for a replacement by filling in the Member Card / Parent Card Replacement Request form and submit the completed form to our offices in person.

[LANGUAGE] My child is not a native Cantonese speaker and mostly speaks English or Putonghua in daily life. What language is used in HKCC's classes?

HKCC's classes are mainly delivered in Cantonese. Meanwhile, members may have opportunities to learn songs or dances from different countries and regions depending on the content of the courses.

Class Changing / Promotion to Next Grade

[CLASS CHANGING] Can I change the class time for my child? How can I do so?

A: You can request Change of Class Time online or complete the Change of Class Time Request form and submit to our offices in person or via postal mail. The Class Schedule of all programmes will be updated regularly on HKCC's website for parents' reference too.

Due to limited places in each class, request will only be granted when there is vacancy. Once the request is granted, you will be notified via telephone, followed by a "Class Time Change Confirmation" via email or fax. Members shall remain in the current classes until notification from HKCC is received.

[PROMOTION TO NEXT GRADE] Will my child automatically be promoted to the next grade after practising for a year? What is the "Performance Appraisal"?

Members will receive a Performance Appraisal written by the class tutors upon completion of the course in every school year (except for Chamber Boys and Chamber Youth) to let parents know more about their performance in class. Tutors generally determine whether or not he/she can be promoted to the next grade based on members' ability and attendance. However, factors such as age, manner and attitude of members will also affect the promotion decision. The Performance Appraisal will be issued either in June or December depending on the structure of individual programmes.

[MULTIPLE MEMBER ACCOUNTS] Both of my children are members of HKCC but they are in different programmes. Can the mobile app show notices for both of them at the same time?

Yes. If you have more than one child studying at HKCC, you can input all the registration tokens you have (each member will receive one token) the first time when you register on the mobile app by pressing the "+" icon on the registration page.

Yes. One member account can be linked to more than one mobile phone number. After receiving the registration token, you can first input the same token on the registration page on two separate phones, then register two new parent accounts with two different phone numbers and passwords. You will then be able to access the latest announcements and notices for the same member with two different parent accounts at the same time. However, in case of submitting notice's receipt, the system will treat the first submitted receipt as the one and only reply from parents. Thus, the reply function in the second parent account will be disabled once submission of a receipt from the first parent account is received.
