COVID-19 has posed a great challenge to the continuance of education during this pandemic. Since most of the children lack reliable electricity at home, let alone internet or laptops, our teachers managed with their commitment to their students and their families. During the day, they have been going door to door where their students live, bringing lessons, books, and words of encouragement, supporting vulnerable populations from a six-foot distance.
After the ease in lockdown, the government announced that all the schools across the country will reopen in phases from Sept. 15, ending a six-month closure propelled by the pandemic.
In the first phases, we welcomed our Grade 9 &10. Students in grade six to eight returned to school on Sept. 23, while students in nursery to grade five were back to school on Sept. 30. Our students are so happy to be back and so are we!
We have set up all precautionary measures against the spread of the corona virus, strictly following the SOPs. Other than providing face masks and sanitizers, non contact infrared thermometers are used to take temperatures. To ensure social distancing and in an attempt to control the spread of virus, we are running the schools in two shifts.
Enthusiastically, the students celebrated World Teachers' Day with the theme Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future”. The love and dedication these teachers have shown their students and their families despite all odds and the risks of doing so, will always be a reason to be proud of their teachers
