The school head, Ms. P has always pointed out that the Chinese ideogram for the word “crisis” is composed of two characters (危机) that respectively mean “danger” and “opportunity.” The faculty, students and families are enthusiastically embracing opportunity during this difficult time. Teachers have gained numerous new digital skills to allow for remote teaching, while students are gaining many valuable working skills of the adult world: responsibly following a schedule, being punctual for online meetings, working collaboratively on presentations and adhering to deadlines, whilst simultaneously continuing to move ahead in the didactic programme.
What do our students say?
Perseverance is another quality which will develop in all of us and make us as individuals stronger, as this experience continues week by week.
Yet again, the “Castelli team” has proved to be a proactive, cohesive and creative group of individuals! And students, we are very proud of all of you! (but please come back soon!).
