There are only three weeks until the end of the school year for grade 8 students and four weeks for other grades. The pupils and teachers are wrapping up activities and various projects. In addition to formative assessment, which has been an ongoing process from the beginning of the school year, at the end of each unit and also at the end of the school year, some summative assessment tasks and projects will also have to be completed by our pupils.
This school year has been very unusual and also exhausting for some of our students. They need more support from all of us in order to be more effective and finish the school year with good results, and be happy with their report cards.
We have already appointed specific teachers who help individual students, and have organised extra lessons in school for the pupils who still do online learning and have difficulties coping with their work.
I would like to ask parents to help their children manage their school work better by ensuring a stimulative learning environment, a lot of sleep, exercise, and healthy nutrition along with well organised working/learning procedures and routines.
