The Ministry of Education and other non-government organizations, through the school, are making an effort to assist parents and students, in a number of ways. Courtesy of the Ministry, three homes have received Mi-Fi devices to connect to the internet. Rise St. Lucia generously donated 7 tablets to help selected students access their virtual classes and online resources. Though the feeding program has been interrupted, supplies are being made available for some parents to collect as a means of providing assistance in these difficult times. Massy stores has also given food packages to homes in need.
June 6, 2020 marked the return of Grade 6 since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. The presence of every student speaks to how serious they are about the upcoming Common Entrance Exam. The preparation continues and the staff extends gratitude to the parents for their cooperation and support during this trying time.
A team from the Ministry of Education visited the school to ensure that all protocols were being followed. These are trying times and we must all play our part; a simple visit goes a long way. Thank you for checking in on the school, it sends a message; “we are all in this together!”
The Covid-19 pandemic forces an early closure of schools and everyone changed gears from face-to-face to cyberspace. Teachers have been asked to prepare packages for homes to engage those students without access to technology and use whatsapp, Google Classroom, Edmodo, Zoom, Google Meet and any other available medium to revise content covered in terms one and two.
What is Covid-19?
Many are happy to use technology to cope with the present situation, while some hold it responsible for our current situation. In the meantime, parents and students are ask to cooperate with educators and the government to observe social distancing and whatever curfews or measures that have been arranged.
Until we can meet again. Be safe everyone.
