Friday, March 20, 2020
Hope you all are fine and taking good care of yourself, your children and people around you. We also expect all of the school community to abide by the protocols set by different Government entities.
During the previous two weeks, our teachers had been busy in working out the protocols, compiling the alternate resources and planning for the distance learning period. During the second week, many teachers and classes had been having Trial Lessons to make sure that all the platforms are working and everyone is connected.
All the lessons will be delivered using:
Links to videos,
Live Audio/Video sessions; and more
Cyber Safety & Anti Bullying Policy and Distance Learning Programmes guidelines have already been shared by the respective Heads of Sections and /or Form Tutors.
All the students across the school are present on EduPage and will be getting the updates through regular notifications as usual.
Following additional platforms are currently being used simultaneously by the teachers and students:
Lessons will be interactive, to make it more dynamic, teachers have connected with students through an audio/visual platform, Microsoft Teams, to conduct live sessions with the students whenever required during the lessons. During such sessions, students can ask questions live and get the answers using the Chat Option.
Moreover, students can ask questions, perform quizzes, and submit assignments, or tasks by posting comments on any of the platforms like EduPage, Google Classroom or Edmodo.
Timetable: Timetable will be followed as had been published in the beginning of the academic term and available on EduPage as a reference.
During the period of distance learning, the regular school timetable will be followed, having the same frequency of lessons, start/end times of every lesson and related schedules.
School Hours will be followed from 7:20 am to 1:30 pm as usual for distance learning.
Attendance will be marked by the subject teachers in every lesson to monitor the involvement of all students and track the punctuality. Absentees and the late joiners would be marked by the teachers and followed up by the respective Heads of Sections.
