Please note that there may be cancellations to our programmes for the following reasons:
Red & Black Rain/No.8 Typhoon Signal
Programmes are automatically cancelled during Red and Black rain warnings or the hoisting of the No.8 Typhoon Signal. If programmes are in progress while a severe weather warning is hoisted, Backyard Roots staff will end the session, contact the Parents/Guardians and ensure the students are in the care of their parent or guardian.
Programmes scheduled to run while Red or Black rain storm warnings are hoisted will be automatically cancelled. Unfortunately no refunds or credit will be offered in this situation.
Where possible, scheduled programmes will resume after the lowering of weather warnings.
If signal is lowered at or after 4pm, all remaining programmes will be cancelled for that day.
Amber Rain Storm warning
Where possible, scheduled programmes will continue in Amber rain if it is safe to do so – updates will be sent via WhatsApp groups.
