Online learning for our Preppies is, thankfully, not a new concept, as it was last year. Amazingly, the material needed to progress fairly seamlessly from in-person to online was pretty much all in place – and what was needed for our Junior Preppies, was quickly put together. Thankfully, this time, we had experience under our belts, as did the children and, to some extent, our parents.
As a whole, online learning cannot come close to the in-person contact and interaction in the classroom and on campus. It takes its toll on everyone, which is why we are grateful to be mostly back together at Prep from next week. For our boarders who cannot manage the trip for so short a time, we will make you as much a part of the classroom’s goings-on as we can as we look forward to all our Preppies being together next term.
