Home-based Learning

Dear Y4OP students,

We will be starting our Home-Based Learning (HBL) tomorrow, Wednesday, 8th April 2020. It now becomes very important for you to be both personally accountable and self-disciplined. The efficacy of HBL will be very dependent on the role that you play. You are trusted to be on-task, and you are trusted to be able to manage yourself maturely and responsibly. The lesson plans for your various classes and your HBL time-table are attached with this email. Please refer to them daily for clarity on your lessons.

Please note that for the duration of the HBL period, you must check your school email daily and regularly.

Additionally, it is important for you to upkeep your daily routines for the sake of your own well-being.

Important NOTES

1. You are to take your HBL seriously and be actively engaged in your learning.

2. You are to log into Google Meet by 07:45 am for contact time with your Form Tutors. During the contact time, you will:

  • Conduct temperature-taking and attendance-taking.
  • Conduct Class Prayer. (Class Prayer Leader to lead, class to follow)
  • Conduct National Pledge. (Class Chairman to lead, class to follow)

3. If you are sick and are not able to do the HBL, you must email your Form tutors and your subject teachers accordingly. Subsequently, you should see a doctor and obtain an MC.

4. Expected behaviour for the duration of the HBL period:

o You should be at home and be punctual for your lessons.

o Keep your camera on your device on at all times during the lesson.

o Should the lesson be in google-meet mode, mute the microphone unless instructed otherwise by the teacher.

o Be appropriately attired. You should be in the Casual Friday Polo-Shirt or the school PE/Fraternity T-Shirt.

o Politely ask your family for privacy (as best as they can).

o Participate in your online lesson with your teachers. DO NOT engage in other activities, online or otherwise.

o Un-mute the microphone when the teacher engages you to speak/answer. Then take turns to speak when called by your teacher.

o If you are using Google Meet, you may want to type your questions on the chat group so that the lesson proceeds smoothly.

o Complete your assignments and tasks according to the allocated time.

o Sit upright and locate yourself at an appropriate place at your home (not on the bed)

o Be respectful and maintain discipline at all times. Focus on the lesson and don’t be distracted by other personal activities.

o Express gratitude to your teacher at the end of the lesson.

o Observe proper decorum and social media etiquette e.g. do not screenshot the videos of tutors teaching and edit it inappropriately and post it on any social media platforms.

Please keep in mind that your teachers have put in the effort to plan your HBL and I trust that you will do your part by participating actively to make the most from it.

Please also know that should you ever need any additional support, your teachers and I are but an email away. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you need to.

Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones during this period.

Stay home, stay safe, stay happy, stay connected, and stay healthy.

Socially Distant (but an email away),
