Xin Jin Shan Chinese Language and Culture School Term 2 Notice
Dear teachers, students and parents,
Last weekend, our Term 2 started as scheduled. Based on the suggestions of the Department of Education and Training, we delivered online classes for our students for Chinese language learning. I’m pleased to inform you that 96% of the 5500 students enrolled in 310 classes from Foundation to Grade 12 (not including Early Learning groups) joined our virtual classes last weekend.
Such a high attendance rate of online learning has exceeded our expectation and it has also witnessed the cooperation, contribution and efforts of all our teachers, students and parents of school community on Chinese language and culture learning at this difficult time of COVID-19.
We have sent out online learning survey to students and parents among a few campuses asking feedbacks on their online learning experience for our future improvement and have received very positive results. 96% of survey receivers are satisfied with our virtual classes (87% are very satisfied and absolutely satisfied) and 3.4% of parents claimed that young students could not concentrate in class in online learning environment and 0.6% claimed not having heard teacher’s voice clearly due to false operation of the software or not happy with 40-minute limit of each session, etc. We would try our best to solve these problems soon. In general, our first week online classes turned out to be a success. We would keep on working to provide a better online learning services for our students.
I would like to present my sincere appreciation to all our teachers, students and parents for their contribution and cooperation and glad to let you know that our virtual classes have so far worked smoothly.
This coming Saturday (25 April) is ANZAC Day. Due to the early finish of Term 1, we got the approval from DET that we could run Chinese language classes on this Saturday. I would like to pay our respect to the nation’s heroes. Let’s meet at the virtual classes on Saturday.
