Dear Parents and Guardians,
Greetings from The Pentecostal Assembly School! I hope and pray that each one of you is safe under the protection of the Almighty.
The COVID -19 Global pandemic took the world by a surprise. Little did we realise that things would change so drastically and dramatically in a short period of time,but it has.Despite all the challenges, and there have been many, we have forged ahead with sheer human grit and determination.
We started our online classes on 29th of March and after 6 weeks of teaching, are soon approaching the summer break. In this last week of classes, I want each of you to take the time to reflect on all that we have achieved.
Our team of dedicated teachers have been working very hard to adapt to a new mode of education, ensuring that no time is lost and students are engaged. In the PrimarySection, they are always available for doubt clearance on Teno App; classes are being organized through Voice lessons and Video lessons. We have ensured that all students uploading their work get feedback and response from the teachers after corrections. In the Secondary and Senior Secondary section, regular classes are being taken through Zoom lectures and TENO App. Teachers have been available for assistance even after the school hours of 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Teachers are also working from home with their limited resources, yet each day well organized Worksheets and Handouts have been madeavailable. For those students who cannot attend the online classes during school hours, all study material, pictures and PDF copies of textbooks and worksheets are uploaded on the school website everyday under the section STUDENT RESOURCES.
E-resources like EXTRAMARKS and MINDSPARK have also been made available to all students. The school is developing a new Learning Management Software for your greater convenience. We have recently procured an Institutional Google Account which will enable us to provide every student a secure online platform for interaction with teachers and peers.
In the 6th week of our study, May 4 to May8, - Online Tests are being conducted through Google Forms for each subject for each class 6 TO 12 to evaluate the achieved learning level of each student.
In the midst of it all we took time to celebrate Earth Day on 22nd April. An online Drawing and Poster making competition was held and the responses were overwhelming. Students also engaged in writing poetry.
Lockdowns have not locked education…together with youwe have made progress when everything seemed to have come to a standstill.I want to thank you for your sacrifices. Your cooperation in supervising your ward’s progress has enabled us to keep them on track on the path of their education. I also want to assure you that your school family is with you in this time of crisis. We are entirely hopeful that when the school reopens, we will take your ward further and higher in his/ her journey of education.
We continue to rely upon your ardent support and cooperation to keep this education system running.
I am choosing Faith over Fear each day. I urge you to do the same. COVID-19 will not break us, it will only make us stronger when we fight it together.
