AbstractKEY MESSAGES 1. A pandemic simulation programme was developed with three components: an adaptable population generator that creates synthetic populations with various structures; a disease simulator that handles combinations of reactive intervention strategies; and a user interface that offers flexible input and graphical output for analysis. 2. Simulation experiments of different reactive strategy combinations were carried out over the regional synthetic populations. 3. The effectiveness of various practical schooling strategies under a realistic demographic situation and movement dynamics were modelled. Limiting contact amongst students in more schools can reduce the overall attack rate. Increasing the duration of school closures can reduce the overall infection attack rate.
