Schools are devising news means to conduct lessons after the government closed schools due to the ongoing pandemic.
The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) which has claimed over 10, 000 lives globally has forced governments to close schools. This means that during this period learners will not be able to access their schools and teachers.
In Uganda, President Yoweri Museveni last Wednesday ordered that schools close on Friday to prevent learners and schools’ managers from being exposed to the deadly virus. Even though no case had been confirmed in Uganda then, schools complied.
One of the schools that complied is Kampala International School Uganda (KISU) which has students from over 60 countries. However, not to lose touch with their learners, KISU adopted the use of the internet to conduct classes.
And on Monday, the school began conducting online classes. “Online learning will begin on Monday 23rd March until the beginning of the Easter holidays. KISU will reopen for Term 3 on Monday 20th April. The School Director will continue to send regular updates and teachers will be in touch to share further details and expectations of online learning.
“School closure will not stop KISU teachers eagerly teaching their students. We will embrace change and new experiences. We really are lifelong learners! Our classes will continue online for our students,” the school said in a statement.
Kampala International School Uganda, a school owned by Ruparelia Group, as the first international school to commence operations in 1993 has over the years put up state-of-the-art facilities including four science labs and three computer labs breeding IT survey students along the way.
