My daughter is really enjoying virtual school. The combination of being in the virtual classroom combined with independent work away from her screen is a wonderful balance, and she’s definitely learning new skills as a result of this. Socially she is benefitting from connecting with her school friends again and making new friends. Her teachers have been outstanding with their support adaptability in all of their lessons. The added benefit of the virtual [extra curricular activities] is exceptional and really demonstrates the creativity of BIS staff in running virtual sport and performing art sessions.

I was very nervous when the school announced that they will have to do virtual learning. But I have to say that I was very impressed from Day 1 with not only the way the teachers set up the program for the children to access each class but also engagement and support that the children receive throughout the virtual learning experience. This new setup drives the children to be more independent which is a huge help for working parents such as myself. Mother of Year 2 student
