Parents have the choice of Onsite, Online or Distance Learning options
Nibras International School and The Aquila School, both owned and operated by International Schools Partnership (ISP), are ready to welcome students back to school on campus for the 2020-2021 Academic year.
“We know that back to school is looking a little different this year, but our schools are ready and excited to welcome our students back,” said Bharat Mansukhani, Regional Managing Director – Middle East, International Schools Partnership.
“In line with the guidelines issued by the KHDA, our schools have implemented enhanced health and safety protocols, ensuring that our communities come back to a safe environment. We are happy that we are able to offer our parents flexible learning options, so that they can choose the mode of education delivery that is best suited for their family."
"We are expecting most of our students back on campus for onsite learning, but parents can also choose online learning or a blended approach,” he continued.
Both Nibras International School and The Aquila School have shared comprehensive re-opening plans with parents, and have invited their communities to take part in virtual coffee mornings so that they can share details of what school is going to look like with the new protocols in place.
With back to school on everyone’s mind at the moment, ISP schools were recently visited by well-known TV presenter and Mother, Azza Al Mughairy, who wanted to see for herself the new health and safety measures that schools had put in place. To see her video, click here.
Renown RJ, DJ and father, Abhijeet Adhvaryu, also had some pressing questions and visited an ISP school to get the answers that all parents are looking for. He wanted to understand the security measures in place before sending his daughter back to school. To see the video of his visit, click here.
Alongside the visible additions of sanitization areas, thermal temperature scanning and signage around the schools highlighting social distancing, some of the changes students will experience include, but are not limited to, smaller class sizes, changes to movement around the school and new pick up and drop off procedures.
There have also been some infrastructure and technology upgrades to both schools.
"The Distance Learning provision offered by our schools received a Developed rating (the highest possible rating) from the KHDA, but we have continued to invest in upgrading the technology and infrastructure within the schools, so that we can deliver even better teaching and learning regardless of it being online, blended or onsite," Mansukhani said.
“When parents choose an ISP school for their child, they are not only choosing a school where health and safety is a priority for the entire community, but they are choosing a school where Amazing Learning and Progress never stops,” he concluded.
