            Dear Parents,

            Greetings from GMIS Semarang.

            We sincerely hope that you are coping well with these corona times and not letting your guard down in dealing with the pandemic. There is hope in the form of vaccines and the process has started but may take time before we are able to live as we were before the pandemic. During the drive by the government to inoculate all teachers over the last two months, most of our teachers and staff have already received both Covid-19 jabs.

            Pandemic Update

            The local government authorities have prepared extensive plan to open the school from July 2021 and we have submitted all the necessary documents required for their information, approval and further guidance. All the protocols and SOP’s as advised by the authorities and WHO website are in place in school and we are constantly working to improve upon them. We are ready as a school for face-to-face teaching on campus. The details of school timings and class timetable is being dispatched along with the report card of your child.

            School Events

            All events for the year 2020-21 were organized, both in school and virtually, so that student learning was not affected. I was also witness to many of these virtual events such as the ICT exhibition, Debates, Story Telling , News Casting , Spelling Bee, ICT competition, Chinese New Year and so on and I am very happy to share with you that I saw the kids relaxed and enjoying these virtual events. In fact, we were surprised to see how our kids have adapted to the new way of learning which has become the new normal as well.

            We are very happy to inform you that all our students have passed the Matriculation and Higher Secondary examinations conducted by BSEISI, held during April 2021. Congratulations to all concerned parents, students and teachers for achieving success in the examinations.

            Dear Parents,

            Greetings from GMIS Semarang.

            I hope you all are well as we continue to face circumstances that have challenged everyone around us. As GMIS family, we have come together throughout the academic year 2020-21 and persevered through difficult times.

            School has decided to go ahead with Blended / Hybrid learning as the method to teach our children from July, when the new school year starts. Blended learning combines the two teaching environments—traditional face-to-face classroom teaching and technology based online learning. Using this method of learning, we can engage students who learn better in a face-to-face interaction with a teacher, and also those who learn better with technology based learning.

            In consultation with the relevant stakeholders, a tentative schedule has been worked out which will be effective for July and August 2021 on trial basis. Students will be having a mix of online, as well as offline classes throughout the week. A glimpse of planned school (Tentative) timings for face to face classes is as follows:

            School is ready to open for in-campus classes with all prevailing health protocols in place which are constantly being upgraded as per the guidance from relevant authorities. Most of our school faculty and staff have already been vaccinated against coronavirus.

            The detailed class time table will be shared with you by the supervisors before the holidays, through EduPage.

            We will be contacting all parents in the beginning of July 2021, for your approval to permit your children to attend in-campus classes. In case you are not comfortable in sending your children to school, we have made arrangements to stream live, the in campus class online too, so as not to disadvantage any student. If everything works well, we will be starting regular full day school from September onwards.

            We will see the effectiveness of this schedule for a couple of weeks and if needed, will be adjusting / extending the number of classes being held at campus for all grades.

            Any feedback / suggestions in this regard are welcome.

            Thank you once again for your support as always.

            With best regards.
