SECONDARY ONLINE LEARNING
Lesson Times for Online Learning for Secondary
All lessons commence at the same time as scheduled on the the regular school timetable. However, as teachers and students need time to switch between video links for different online classes, breaks between lessons are 5 minutes to allow time for the changeover. Please see the lesson times below for exact times:
The importance of a daily routine
Based on experiences from the previous period of online learning, we strongly encourage parents to ensure their children maintain a regular routine.
1. Getting up and dressed
Students should get up at the same time as a regular school day and dressed as usual following school uniform requirements.
2. Work Area
We strongly recommend that where possible students set tup a work space where they will not be disturbed but parents can be aware of what they are doing.
We do not recommend that students close themselves off in their own room.
A good compromise would be the student in an open area that parents can supervise and use earphones to block out local sounds.
Secondary students follow the same daily school schedule and will takes break and lunch at the same time as a regular school day.
4. Please ensure that students maintain a healthy, balanced diet during this period
