As we near the end of the third week of online learning, there is much to celebrate. Our teachers have made the rapid transition to delivering lessons online, doing all that they can to ensure continuity and stability for our children. Students have shown remarkable resilience, independence and maturity while settling into a new format of learning.
These incredible transitions by children and teachers are not accidental. Since the beginning of the academic year, Britannica teachers have worked tirelessly to prepare for such events. It is this longstanding preparation which allowed us to instantly revert to online learning. Likewise, our children have had educational technology embedded in their daily curriculum, allowing them to become both able and confident in their use of technology.
Home-school communication is essential for children’s academic progress. The school has received numerous emails from parents sharing their positive experiences so far.
“Jacky appeared to be very engaged in each class. This owes a lot to the preparations made beforehand by the school. More importantly, Jacky had a decent playtime after e-learning rather than being held by excessive homework. All these have made it a pleasant and refreshing day today. Thank you for making this happen.”
