LATEST GOINGS ON AT THE SCHOOL...
Last week, we introduced Zoom video conferences in the PYP because the groups had already been established by parents in some classes during the first week of online learning. As Zoom is now facing huge privacy and security problems, for safety reasons, we will stop using it and move to Microsoft Teams, which ensures more protection.
I hope this change will not cause additional stress and tension. We want to ensure to continue to give more quality support to students via video conferencing in a safe virtual environment.
Some suggestions for offline activities this weekend:
- Prepare a treasure hunt
- Create an obstacle course
- Build the tallest tower
- Write a joke book
- Make a paper aeroplane
- Try some origami
- Build a blanket fort
Enjoy the weekend in good spirits and be cheerful.
In a few days the invoices for April’s tuition fees will be sent to you. As I have previously informed you, the tuition fees for the period of online learning will be reduced by 20%, which means your invoice will be 80% of our regular tuition fees, for grades 1 to 8. You will not be charged for the Kindergarten and Afternoon Programmes.
The March difference, 20% for the basic programme and 100 % for the Kindergarten Programme and the Afternoon Programme, from 16 to 31 March, will be deducted from June’s tuition fees.
For those who have paid the tuition fee in advance in one or two installments, the 20% reduction in fees will be calculated and returned at the end of the school year in June.
I hope that you are all healthy and well. Think of safety!
According to the current information received from the Ministry of Education, schools will be closed until May at the least.
More details will follow soon.
Keep safe and healthy.
