HFS ONLINE SCHOOL PROGRAM
LEARNING HAS NO BOUNDARIES
As committed, HFS opens its online school doors to all the parents and students. We welcome you all back warmly and remotely amidst the ongoing COVID-19 scenario. It is indeed a fact that we miss our physical school connection but have tried our utmost to keep the students engaged during the past few months through online teaching and learning. This was done through various digital tools including Google Classrooms, Zoom, Facebook, and WhatsApp among the notable few. It is with pride that we state that our students were able to handle the online mediums quite well. We also posted summer packs for the targeted grade levels and their response was positive too. Our HIFZ team was equally active in taking Quran sessions on daily basis on WhatsApp and Zoom which proved to be extremely fruitful. The students were able to practice regularly and remain in touch with their lessons throughout.
Now, HFS has taken the teaching and learning to the next digital level through its HFS Online School Program. Taking into account the importance of online learning and creating a virtual set up whereby the parents and students are looped in actively which makes this a top priority. For this, we have designed student-centred teaching and learning framework for different grade levels. We have kept in mind all the challenges and constraints faced so that this online system continues smoothly. Rest assured regular online feedback will be taken from parents and students to lead to effective outcomes inshallah.
Kindly find the framework details of the Online School Program which starts on Thursday, 11th June 2020 inshallah.
