CAIS brightens up with students eagerly back to campusSteps are in place to ensure a pleasurable and smooth transition

September 23, 2020

Students at Christian Alliance International School (CAIS) are elated to return to school at long last after a month-long online learning at home.

Partial reopening of school as directed by the Education Department (EdB) has started today on 23 September, with a full reopening scheduled on 29 September.

“Our previous experience in switching from off-site learning to on-site learning has primed us to execute a smooth transition for students to fully embrace on-campus learning with their peers,” said Mr Richard Vanderpyl, CAIS Head of School.

“While delivering an engaging and memorable learning experience remains our top priority, we are also mindful that new students could use some additional support when it comes to meeting new friends and getting to know the school.”

“Our staff are committed to reaching out to both new and current students to support them academically and emotionally.”

CAIS leadership has been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that a safe roadmap is firmly in place for students to return to school on a gradual basis.

“Vigilance is the key. Safety measures such as travel history records, temperature checks, regular hand-washing breaks and social distancing have become the norm for our entire CAIS community.”

“And if any student or staff is not feeling 100% well, our directive is they should stay home 100%,” added Mr Vanderpyl.

Prior to the first day of school, parents of new students were also invited to join a welcome orientation where Mr Vanderpyl and the senior leaders met them face to face.
