Event Postponed – Kuala Lumpur Drinks
Next month representatives from Marlborough College UK were due to undertake a trip to China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia where they were planning to hold a number of events for OMs and parents.
In recent weeks we have been monitoring the Coronavirus outbreak. Last week this was declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organisation and the UK government advised anyone who has travelled to Hong Kong, Singapore or Malaysia and who is experiencing fever-like symptoms to stay indoors for 14 days. As a school, we have to prioritise the well-being of our pupils and staff at all times and currently staff travelling overseas does pose a risk.
In addition, we are aware that large gatherings (such as our planned events) are not advisable in the coming weeks. We have therefore taken the difficult decision to postpone the trip and our events until later in the year when we can be sure that they can go ahead.
