AssalamoAlaikom HDIS Families,

March break is over but kids are still at home, they will not be returning to school on the 5th of April but according to Premier Doug Ford, a school closure will be extended indefinitely amid a COVID-19 outbreak.

This is tough, we want everyone to be safe and secure but we also want our children to keep on learning. This is the time of the year when student’s learning is supposed to be at the maximum and the final term could conclude their learning in June.

Parents play an important role in their child’s learning and it is still possible with the combined efforts of parents and teachers.

We want them to finish the academic year successfully fulfilling all academic requirements. We do not want them to sit in from of the T.V or computers the whole day or play in their gadgets. This will stop them from moving forward in their achieving with loss of precious time and they will end up losing their prior knowledge if not connected wisely. We can use the technology and gadgets to educate them by connecting them with their classroom teachers every day as normal school settings with reduced hours and effective teaching.

Hamilton Downtown Islamic School has come up with a plan of starting E-Teaching for the benefit of the students. However, this will include teachers to work very hard and create an online portal to reach all the students but teachers of HDIS are ready to meet the challenges. A teacher’s true happiness lies in the student’s success.

Imagine three months without proper learning than two more months of summer holidays and the loss of your child’s productivity !! this is the time that we work together and continue to support our children learning by encouraging them to attend every day like a school day by being in a virtual classroom with all other fellows, taking lessons, doing discussions getting homework and be productive each day. The other option is doing nothing for five days plus weekends for the remainder of the year and this continues for indefinite time!!

We are lucky that we have a team of dedicated teachers who are willing to consider E-Teaching options, we are blessed to have these skills at HDIS, kindly consider taking benefit from them. This is an opportunity and not all primary schools are thinking to offer E-Teaching right now but we can start it as soon as we get parent’s consent. This is in the best interest of your child, kindly inform the school as soon as possible that you are willing to support and then we will be able to announce the start date. We need people to support their children learning and appreciate our teacher’s dedication to make this happen.

Please contact/email school for the consent to start the mutual E-Learning of your child today!
