Remote Learning

Beaulieu Prep Newsletter 11 - 2020

There is just one day to go before we close for the mid-term long weekend. Time has gathered speed and we will soon be into the home straight and hurtling towards year-end.

We have been blessed, in that there hasn't been a single Covid-infection in any of the Kyalami Schools (a population of more than 1600 pupils and 240 staff) in the six weeks since we returned to school for the final term. The children and staff have settled into a routine and we are making headway in closing the gaps which the lockdown has wrought in their learning.

It seems that school is the safest place to be, at the moment! Although we have had a number of Covid-19 infections amongst our children and staff, we are very pleased to note that not a single infection has yet resulted from a contact at school. In every instance, infections have been traced to adults from outside. Although this is heartening, we have not relaxed our efforts in implementing the Health and Safety protocols which will keep us all safe. We urge parents to do the same. As lockdown continues, albeit at decreasing levels, many have become complacent and have increased outings and social and family gatherings. We do need to be extra careful, especially during the 'spike'. We are all in this together and we need to keep ourselves, and each other, safe.

I hope that this finds you safe, warm and well.

There are a number of changes which we will undertake after the mid-term break, as we refine our systems and get better at coping efficiently with all the regulations and the new 'normal for now'.

We are so pleased that we finally have a timeframe for the return to school of all our children from Grade 0 to Grade 7. We await direction from the Department of Social Development for children in Grade 000 and Grade 00, but remain hopeful that they will also be allowed to return to the campus in the not too distant future.

The second term of 2020 is two weeks old and what an experience it has been so far!

The school buildings and playgrounds are unnaturally quiet and we are missing, sorely, the happy sounds which usually signal the start of a term: excited voices, shared laughter and lots of talking and swapping of stories and jokes. What we would give for a return to the good, old days....
