iSchool is a private British school operating in Olomouc

From Monday 1/3, in connection with the newly declared state of emergency and newly adopted anti covid measures, we are forced to close the operation of the remaining parts of the school again. Below we bring you some important updates.

Due to the worsening of the epidemic situation, the operation of the children's group Lions, our preschool and the first three years of primary school will be closed from Monday 1.3.

For all year groups except children in the Lions class, we will offer a some extent of distance learning option from Monday.

Broadcasting live from our Preschool:

Reception (Ms Markéta) - broadcasting live from the Reception class will take place with Mrs. Markéta every day for 30 minutes, always from 9:30 to 10:00 on this link. The content of the live sessions from the Reception class will be physical exercises, talking to the teacher, rhymes, the development of English phonetics and mathematical ideas. The necessary aids and workbooks were handed over to the parents on Friday 26/2. If you are missing something, please contact marketa.musiolova@ischool.cz individually.

Nursery (Ms Petra) - broadcasting live from the Nursery class will take place with Mrs. Petra every day for 20 minutes, always from 9:00 to 9:20 on this link.

Year 1 (Chloe): Teaching will take place online via Lifesize on this link. The class will be divided into 4 groups of three pupils. A separate timetable was created for each group, which was sent to parents by e-mail on Friday. The teaching of each group will last 30 minutes twice a day, once a week there will be a common lesson for all Y1 pupils (social aspect). The folder with printed materials was handed over to each pupil on the last day of full-time teaching on Friday 26/2. Pupils will also be assigned tasks to work on independently in workbooks, copybooks, worksheets or printed materials or other tasks (eg products in IPC). Homework will be assigned through Google Classroom and explained during the lessons with the possibility of questions from pupils and parents, who are usually present at distance learning. At Google Classroom, parents will find additional support materials and videos.

Broadcasting live from school:

Year 2 (Jitka): Teaching will take place online via Lifesize on this link and according to the same timetable like in school, the folder with printed materials was handed over to each pupil on the last day of full-time teaching on Friday 26/2. Online classes can be shortened (health aspect - long sessions and screen time) and partially replaced by individual work in workbooks or printed materials or on other tasks (eg products in IPC). Homework will be assigned through Google Classroom and explained during the lessons with the possibility of questions from pupils and parents, who are usually present at distance learning.

Year 3 (Rubee): Teaching will take place online via Lifesize on this link according to the same timetable like in school, the folder with printed materials was handed over to each pupil on the last day of full-time teaching on Friday 26/2. Online lessons can be shortened (health aspect - long sessions and scree time) and partially replaced by individual work in workbooks or printed materials or on other tasks (eg products and projects in IPC). Homework will be assigned through Google Classroom and explained during the lessons with the possibility of questions from pupils and parents, who are usually present at distance learning.

Tuition fees refunds - since distance learning in the lower grades of primary school and preschool can hardly fully replace full-time tuition, we will again prepare a tuition refund program. The amount of the return for each day when the school would be closed will depend on the amount of fixed costs for the operation of the building, effectivness of the distance learning program and the refunds provided by the state as compensation for the closure of the operation.

If it is necessary to visit the preschool or primary school in order to pick up materials or aids, please contact our colleague Eva Pluskalová for primary school at eva.pluskalova@ischool.cz (tel. 725 704 245) and colleague Markéta Musiolová for preschool at marketa.musiolova@ischool. cz (tel. 605 966 ​​401). You can also contact both colleagues in order to receive certificate confirming school closure if you need it for your employer or any other purpose. For the purposes of the OČR (social benefits - care of a child) you can find more details and fill in an online form on the OSSZ (social authority) web pages HERE. Do not hesitate to contact us if you need our assistance.

Teaching in other year groups (Y4 and above) will continue as before. All distance learning in iSchool is carried out according to the updated rules for distance learning issued in February 2021.

Lunches for all children in preschool and primary school have been cancelled. 

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Mr. Jiří Mencl for his generous donation of 200 respirators to our ISO team. We really appreciate it. 

We wish all children, pupils, parents and teachers a lot of strength, a positive mind and, most importantly, good health.

 

 

Why should your child attend iSchool?

They will gain perfect knowledge of English.

Your child will become a global citizen with wide understanding of local and international topics.

We put a strong emphasis on the development on subject specific skills rather than on acquisition of knowledge.

Emphasis on skills development (not just memorising).

Individual approach; school’s ability to motivate for improvement.

Your child will be excited to come to school.

School philosophy

You are not buying success, you are paying for the school to monitor your child’s progress to their goals and motivate them to fulfil their potential.

We are not a selective school: we believe that everybody can be successful.
