Dear parents,

I have been receiving a lot of positive feedback from parents and our teachers, but also some e-mails from parents who think that their children are under great stress because of the workload of online learning.

I STRONGLY BELIEVE that being active and working hard is much healthier and productive than procrastinating, lazing around and having too much time for worry and self pity. It is important that children are busy, and show responsibility and agency, especially in the situation we are in at present. Postponing work and stressing about the situation will not do them any good. It will be very difficult for them to catch up with their school work later and, consequently, it will be even more stressful.
These are difficult times for everyone, but our students will get used to working on their own efficiently very quickly, and it will be a very good learning experience for them.
Our students work very hard in school. They have from five to seven lessons plus homework almost every day. In school, teachers pace the lessons accordingly and encourage them. Of course, it is more difficult for them now because they have to learn to do everything on their own, but children adapt very quickly. Being persistent and organising productive activities at home is a very good investment for the future.
Our team takes this situation very seriously; we want to offer our students the same quality programmes as they get when in our school building.  We want to make certain that this interruption of regular school processes and practices will not affect our students’ final results and that all of them will finish this school year successfully and on time.
Be assured that our team is available to help and support your child/ren through online learning. If you and your child/ren need any help or have any questions, we are there for you.

Tremendous thanks for your help and support!

Think of safety and stay in good spirits.

Best wishes,

Irena Steblaj
