Parent Update Oakridge International School Mohali
- 10 September 2021
I hope you are doing well.
September is a month of celebrations and we celebrated our teachers on Teachers Day. Though we appreciate them all the time, but Teachers Day is extra special. The love and appreciation that poured in from your side and of course from our students made our educators feel extra special. I thank you all for partnering with us in this beautiful learning journey.
The school is once again abuzz as we are ready to move into Hybrid learning mode. On 15 September our students of grade 5-12 are coming back to school. We have got a very positive response to reopening and I want to highlight the fact that we are going over and beyond with our safety protocols. Only staff who are fully vaccinated or Covid recovered will be in school while students are in campus. Even visitors will have restricted entry. Social distancing and sanitizing norms are already in place. We have shared details of the process to be followed in case you plan to visit school. I seek your support in adhering to all timelines for filling up the forms online – visitors form (in case you plan to come to school) and Health Declaration Form (in case your child is attending school).
As always, our staff is actively engaged in honing their skills. Nord Anglia University is helping us in this regard. After the successful implementation of the MIT-STEAM challenges last year we are once again ready to roll out the MIT-STEAM Challenge for this year. The first MIT Extreme Weather Challenge, the Tropical Cyclones challenge is now live on Global Campus. The children will learn more about this from their teachers and they can explore the Global Campus as well.
Wellbeing and fitness remain our areas of focus. We are most excited to take entries for the 2km and 5km race. The details have been shared with you. Please do register with your child’s class teacher by 12 September. This is open for students of age 5 years upwards.
Looking forward to exciting times ahead as we move into hybrid school.
Happy Learning and best wishes for the time ahead!
