Dear Parents ,
Greetings from GMIS Semarang.
School is not able to function normally because of widespread fear of Covid 19 since 16th March as per the guidelines issued by the various government authorities . All teachers were able to engage the students through various tasks , assignments and online classes throughout this period of force majeure. Because of this unprecedented situation faced by all schools in the region , we are forced to modify the School Academic Calendar in consultation with other Gandhi group of schools in Indonesia. Following are the important revised dates
1. The exams for all students will be conducted using EduPage , the school information system we are using. Before the exams , all students will be given a practice test to understand how this new system of exams will be working. We will also be sharing with you a small video to help you to understand the process. All exams will be consisting of questions which are easy for the kids to attempt electronically like Multiple Choice questions , Fill in the blanks , Matching/Sorting columns type questions etc. Each paper will be conducted during the time window mentioned in the time table which is being shared with you through class teacher.
Final Term Exams - 8th May to 15th May 2020
Report Card distribution – Pre School - 15th May 2020
Results and report card distribution- Grade 1 to Grade 11 - 19th and 20th May 2020
School Holidays for Students - 21st May to 7th July 2020
Students report for Next Academic Year - 08th July 2020 at 07:00 am
If some children are unable to do the test , because of some technical reasons , a modified window will be provided by respective subject teachers.
2. Admit cards will be released electronically to all students before the exams. In case your child fees are still pending , you are requested to kindly settle it before the exams. The printed report cards will be issued to all students after all tests are finished on 19th and 20th May 2020 , either through personal collection from school or through post.
3. We sincerely hope that all we have planned will proceed smoothly. In case there are unforeseen circumstances because of government guidelines and instructions , we will be in touch with you with appropriate information.
We would like to take this opportunity once again to thank all the parents for being most supportive with the school during these times. We are preparing guidelines to be implemented in school campus to make sure that the safety and health of students under our care is given utmost importance. We will seek your help in implementing and following new procedures in place once school reopens for normal functioning. If you have any suggestions in this regard , you are most welcome to forward us for consideration.
With kind regards.
