Challenges become opportunities at St Joseph's Girls High School
Since mid-March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted nearly all aspects of our school life at St Joseph's Girls High School. Although this period has presented unique challenges, it has also presented new opportunities and responsibilities for students, staff and parents who quickly adapted to new ways of learning. Many of our students do not have laptops, smartphones or a stable internet connection at home; however, their ability and willingness to step up to the challenge and adapt has been very stimulating. Creative ways of teaching and learning were developed to avoid learning losses and help students stay on track.
School returned to face-to-face learning on 11th October 2021. Our warm, dedicated teachers continue to ensure that each student can achieve their full potential in their academic, creative, personal, physical, moral and spiritual development. We as Lasallians are responsible for shaping those entrusted to our care so that they grow up and sow seeds of blessings wherever they are planted.
As school life returns to normal, teachers are busy organising co-curricular activities to enhance learning experiences for students. Below are a few examples of activities that have been successfully carried out:
Sharing and Caring Day
Sharing is the best gesture to show that you care. On ‘Sharing and Caring Day’, Students had the option of sharing a thing or an experience. Many students chose to share tasty food while others shared good thoughts about each other.
An inter-class ‘Poster Competition’ was held to bring awareness among the students about COVID- 19. Students were tasked with creating a poster on "How to protect yourself and others from COVID". Students participated in this activity with great enthusiasm.
Students Investiture Ceremony
An oath-taking ceremony of the newly-elected students' council 2020-21 was held. The students took an oath to perform their duties with commitment, honesty and resilience. The students were presented with colourful sashes and badges.
Spelling and Speech Competition
A Spelling Competition was held to provide students with a platform to improve their spelling and increase their vocabulary. Inter-classes Urdu and English Speech competitions were also held. All the students vigorously participated in both competitions.
Teachers' Day Celebration
Teacher's Day was celebrated to highlight the contributions and achievements of the teachers in the School. It was also an opportunity to wish our Principal, Br Christie Dorus, a Happy Birthday.
