Everything has changed, from our lifestyle to our priorities, thanks to COVID 19. The world we knew has ceased to exist, and we are now making a headway to light up the dawn of virtual reality. CPSGS Thirumazhisai has embraced and attuned these changes and turned them into opportunities to explore all prospects of virtual teaching and learning.
This day, 1st June, 2020, the academic year 2020-21 commenced virtually for our IGCSE and IBDP learners. It was an exhilarating moment, as the entire family of CPSGS along with our IGCSE and IBDP students all ‘zoom’ed in together for a virtual morning assembly nearly after two months. Receiving the blessings from the Almighty, through school prayer, Saraswati Vandana and a short mindfulness session, the stage for e-learning was perfectly set. The step forward was aptly initiated with a quote by Martin Luther King, “The first step is all that matters and everything else will fall in place.”
The virtual assembly was followed by an invigorating session on Entrepreneurship-the pursuit of opportunities by Mr M.K. Balaji , Specialist Leader, Deloittee Consulting LLP,USA. To set the regular routine of academic classes, IGCSE Year 2 and IBDP Year 2 students moved on to their scheduled, first virtual academic ‘classrooms’ for 2020-2021. IGCSE Year 1 and IBDP Year 1 engaged in Ice-Breaking sessions and with subject orientations on Virtual Day 1.
Beginnings are always special. Keeping up with the pragmatic spirit even during these trying times, when the world asks, “where are you heading?” we proudly say, “onto better things.” Here’s to yet another successful and dynamic academic year at CPSGS Thirumazhisai!
