We started 2021 school year on March 8 with online classes. The first trimester will end on June 11. We are pleased to announce that the second trimester will start on June 14 and part of the classes will be online and part in the classroom. It will be great to bring our student back to our school again. The administration is ready, the teachers are excited, the students are happy.
This year we are celebrating our 15th Anniversary and last Friday we had a virtual meeting to share with students and alumni. What great testimonies and feedback we received from them. We are proud of our people.
Thank you for your faithfulness and for being there for us.
Today our teachers began the month of training and planning for the new school year 2021. They will be taught mainly in technology to enhance their digital skills and present information to their students in a more playful, attractive, engaged and objective way.
Students are on vacation and start virtual classes on Monday, March 1. We are sure that this will be an exciting year because our teachers are committed to promoting research and analysis of the information that the Internet puts in our hands, and to take their students several steps up.
I am very happy to share with you that for seven months our students have been studying online. It was difficult at the beginning because our students did not have a computer at home and many of them did not have access to the Internet. But we raised a campaign to receive donations of cell phones for our students and data cards for their cell phones. And we got them.
Our students are using their cellphones to take their classes, do research, prepare and send their homeworks. They have done great.
They have also been volunteering to assemble bags of food and distribute them in the community, for their families and for all families in Curundu. Beautiful.
Thank you for all your support. You are part of the success of our students.
of cellIn Panama classes started on March 2 and were suspended on March 11 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Thanks to our subscription to the Google for Education platform, we were able to adapt and train the students to start the digital classes, which started on March 23. This is a great achievement.
Students do not have computers but use cell phones and free Wi-Fi offered by the government in the Curundu neighborhood. Not all of them had cell phones but we are collecting donated used cell phones for them.
Our school building is closed and so is the kitchen and dining room, but now that most families in Curundu cannot work and there is no food, every week we are bringing bags of food to our students' homes and to many other needed homes in the community.
Thank you for your support that allows us to continue educating young people from poor and vulnerable families.
We are working hard to be ready to start 2019 school year on Monday, March 2nd. We added 2 new classrooms, a group of volunteers from USA are here painting and fixing everything to make a nicer schools for our students.
We have 15 new students that participated in the one week Before School Seminar last week.
We also received a donation of 15 tablets to start the program "TRAIN FOR EMPLOYMENT" with 290 different courses for our students. All teachers will be trained to use these courses and our students will be better trained and more technological. We are excited!
We count on you for this new year. Thank you for your support.
