Beginning last week, our senior school students and staff returned to (partial) on-campus learning. As with the junior schools, students were divided into two groups that attended on alternate days. The students not physically in class on any given day joined their peers in the classrooms remotely. Staff have reported that this has worked well and helped the students feel together as one class. Students and staff have been happy to reconnect with each other and surprised at how smoothly the return has gone. This is down to great preparation, flexibility and creativity; especially with timetabling and space, in order to ensure social distancing on site is maintained. Wellbeing and mental health have been a top priority. You can read a summary of all the measures undertaken and responses, here.
Having navigated the reopening successfully, our school leaders are only too happy to share the wisdom, so that other schools in similar situations around the world may benefit from our experience. You can read some of the articles that have been published recently, below. We continue to learn, adapt and improve as we go along; for example; a recent enhancement to the learning experience of remote students and the class as a whole was to invest in quality microphones.
