Temporary School suspension
The health alert produced by the spread of the Coronavirus has led the Xunta de Galicia to dictate the temporary suspension of classes and the closure of schools from March 16th, for a period of 14 days.
We are aware of what these measures can mean for the organization and family logistics and for the children’s learning process too. Therefore O Castro British School wants to support the whole educational community activating a “Contingency Plan” that will allow us to continue offering quality education to our students, guaranteeing their continuous online learning.
In this sense, O Castro British School will continue with the teaching activity in all educational stages in the modality of “non attendance education”, using a range of educational resources and communication tools that ensure the greatest possible stability in student learning with online learning and constant tutoring between students and teachers to be carried out successfully.
This will be possible thanks to the support of Globeducate, a leading education group with 25,000 students in 51 countries and online learning programs in ten countries in different parts of the world. At O Castro British School we want and must be the mirror in which our students are reflected. We must have the ability to handle unknown situations, be creative and flexible in the search for solutions and be prepared for what life brings us at any time.
We reiterate our thanks for the understanding and collaboration in this matter to all our educational community. All the staff at O Castro British School will always try to meet the individual needs of each member.
