RTL Today contacted the St George's International School for comment on how exactly the new governmental guidelines would be applied at their premises.

Christian Barkei, St. George's Principal had this to say:

"I can share with you our amended procedures for the next three weeks. On Tuesday we received additional guidance from the Ministry of Education with regard to new measures to apply in school from Monday 30th November 2020.

The measures outlined below align our school with the national health system and the general COVID 19 measures planned by the government.

These new measures will begin on Monday 30th November and last until the end of term on Friday 18th December. They require all students in our secondary school to complete one week of remote learning over the next three weeks.

Our plan is as follows:

Week Monday 30th November to Friday 4th December

Year 9 and 10 must stay at home and attend remote online learning via Microsoft TEAMS.

Year 7, 8, 11, 12 & 13 will be in school.

Year 11, 12 & 13 will be completing mock examinations as already planned.

Week Monday 7th December to Friday 11th December

Year 7 and 8 must stay at home and attend remote online learning via Microsoft TEAMS.

Year 9, 10, 11, 12 & 13 will be in school.

Year 11, 12 & 13 will be completing mock examinations as already planned.

Week Monday 14th December to Friday 18th December

Year 11, 12 & 13 must stay at home and attend remote online learning via Microsoft TEAMS.

Year 7, 8, 9 & 10 will be in school.

The calendar dates for Term 2 remain unchanged.

Essentially we will substantially reduce the number of secondary students in school at any one time in the next three weeks.

We of course already have stringent health procedures in place at school and we are confident that our tested online learning programme is effective in reaching all our students who need to work from home."
