Information on tuition and other fees and the school's approach to this issue during the second wave of the government crisis measures.
Based on a government decision, a ban on pupils attending schools was issued with effect from 14 October. In this context, the school switched to a distance form of education immediately from Wednesday, October 14. We teach grades from Y2 and above according to the standard schedule via the Lifesize application and Google Classroom. Although we perceive that the effectiveness of teaching is to some extent affected and that part of the responsibility for education has passed to parents, especially for younger children, we are not able to prepare a similar refund program as in the spring, given the situation and current government support. Teaching in the spring was interrupted for some time completely and teachers were put on extensivelly on furloughs. The situation is now different, as we try to keep the maximum number of hours possible so that students can continue their studies remotely. Furthermore, most teachers also broadcast from the school, where they have the necessary tools and equipment. Thus tuition fees for days when students cannot attend school will not be refunded as part of this second wave.
The situation is different in the afterschool club and in most activities. With real exceptions (Robotics), these cannot be replaced remotely of course. For this reason, a proportion of the funds for the 1st term for attending the afterschool provision and the clubs will be returned to all pupils registered in the ASC and in the clubs. The amount we will return will depend on the total number of days when the ASC will be closed or the clubs will not take place. We will have this information only after the pupils return to school. Compensation will then be resolved within the invoicing for II. term in January, when we will return the funds.
Please note that we will not be broadcasting next week on Monday, November 16th. According to the school calendar issued at the beginning of the year, holidays are planned for this day.
We sincerely hope that soon it will be possible at least for the younger students to return back to daily attendance.
In these unprecededented times we wish you all lots of energy and good health.
