AS HONG KONG is removed from the World Health Organisation's list of Sars-affected areas, schools have returned to a mask-free environment. So, what do the students have to say? Jacky Law Cheuk-ki and Dicky Law Cheuk-lun, 12 'It's a lot more convenient. In those days, I sometimes forgot to take off my mask before eating. As a result, the food stuck onto the mask.' Chau Chun-wai, 10 'Bravo! There is no more atypical pneumonia. I am so happy and no more people will suffer from this disease and no one will die.' James Pho, 9 '[I feel] so happy since it's so free without the mask and I can talk to my classmates without covering my mouth. '[I am] so relaxed because every time I wear a mask, I feel very hot and [I] sweat a lot.' Cecilia Kwok Sin-ki, 7 'I want to take a deep breath and breathe in more fresh air. '[I am] very happy because I no longer need to put on a mask and it's so hot [when wearing it].'
