Dear students and colleagues,

During the mourning session, people across the country will observe three minutes of silence as a mark of respect to the late President Jiang’s contribution to the nation.

Accordingly, staff and students of the Chinese University of Hong Kong are requested to observe three minutes of silence, starting from 10am on 6 December. As a further mark of respect, all official events scheduled for tomorrow will be cancelled.

Staff and students are encouraged to watch the RTHK’s livestream of the memorial service which will be broadcast tomorrow morning.
