March 2020 saw our schools turn upside-down with the COVID-19 pandemic and measures that were put in place to slow down contagion. Our staff quickly mobilised and got onto online teaching platforms. Students continue working on their assigned daily tasks, sent via email by 8:00am, ensuring content is the same for all. The below are just a few key highlights:

• Email sent daily by all teachers by 08:00 across all preps including handouts, PowerPoint presentations with or without voiceover, links, virtual platform invites, etc

• Recorded lessons

• Virtual live lesson – using Teams, Zoom, Webex, Class Dojo – besides the normal lesson delivery, live lessons are used for class meetings, storytelling, show and tell, class assemblies, and singing

• Teachers have also explored creative ways of sending the students a recorded reading lesson

• Some teachers are joining LSEs in a one-to one session with a student on a statement or students with a difficult family background
