Principal’s Desk Update – February 2022
- 9 February 2022
Hope you are safe and healthy. We are glad to see students coming back to school with new confidence and excitement. It’s always good to hear a little chatter around the corners of the school rather than empty corridors. We appreciate your trust and confidence in us by being by our side in these difficult times.
As the cases of 3rd wave of COVID started to decline, we re-opened our school with a hope that this pandemic will become an endemic and we shall soon get back to normalcy. We won half of the battle by getting ourselves vaccinated, the rest half is to get our children vaccinated. We are conducting student vaccination drives for children of 15-18yrs age group in association with Rainbow Children’s Hospital, to make sure all our students are vaccinated and are safe. Kindly request you to update your child’s vaccination status on our Schoolpost and Oak app.
Even though the school has been in a virtual mode for so long, I am glad to see many happy faces at school. I understand that some of you are still in a dilemma whether to send the students back to school or not, as you know we never compromise on the students’ safety and we have implemented strict protocols to stop the spread of the virus.
It was an honor to be a part of the student led conference-PMUN 2022- where the 4th and 5th grade students from all international schools could participate and discuss serious global issues. I congratulate the whole team behind it for making it a successful event.
I thank all the parents for filling up the Annual Parent Satisfaction Survey, we are very happy to see those fantastic reviews. We would like to inform you that our score has increased in leaps and bounds. We will continue to do well and keep you proud and happy. Also ensure that we provide the best learning opportunity for the children. We have also sent you the re-enrolment form and request you to take some time for it. For any concerns regarding the same, please feel free to reach out to us.
Now that the school is open we have a few events that you can look forward to. Especially for different segments we have an open day for parents coming up, student-led events and we are also starting with the inter-house sports competitions. So, we look forward to see you at school and be a part of these events.
Lastly, I recommend everyone to stay strong and healthy, as this too shall pass. Looking forward for a successful 2022.
Principal, Oakridge International School, Gachibowli
