News making the headlines

ONLINE DISTANCE LEARNING

There is no doubt that education is one of the most important and precious gifts that one can give to a child. This is why under the current coronavirus pandemic there has been an eLearning wave in education, that our staff had to quickly adapt to, in order not to disadvantage our children. One of the experiences is that teaching children physically in a classroom, cannot be compared with the effort that teachers had to put in providing online lessons. The switch from the traditional classroom to the computer-based learning in a virtual classroom has not been easy.

Re-opening of schools

Schools are expected to reopen for the exam writing classes (Forms 4 and 6) on Tuesday, 28 July 2020. There will be a staggered return of the other Forms and you will be advised accordingly. This implies that Online Distance Teaching and Learning will continue for the rest of the Forms. The pandemic has had a negative effect on our school finances and we, therefore, expect all fees payments to be complete before 28 July 2020. Reports from all over the world show that some parents have reservations about sending children back to school.
