Our staff are back at work and are continuing to deliver engaging learning opportunities through our online classroom platforms. Over the last three days, our teachers have created some fantastic e-learning practices for our students to continue their studies with as little disruption as possible. Whilst these are challenging circumstances, they have been innovative and enthusiastic, rising to the challenge, and producing some outstanding results. It goes without saying that our students have also been magnificent, engaging with the learning and interacting with their teachers. We may even have a few budding YouTube superstars amongst us!
Keep an eye on our social media channels over the next few days for more great examples of e-learning!
