Following the announcement by the Permanent Secretary of State, schools are now closed, due to the status of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see my letter entitled, TPS We are online!
Putting our disappointment to one side, this decision was made in order to keep us all safe, we must do our best to adhere to his advice. We need to beat this virus and the best way to do this is to stay at home, to mask up, to social distance, to regularly sanitize and wash our hands as often as possible. A further announcement was made that allowed BOARDING Schools who run a Cambridge Curriculum to open. Trident College falls fully into these categories and hence they opened as normal. Trident Prep falls into the category of schools allowed to open online, Our TPS pupils are resilient and our parents and teachers are diligent and committed, we can this and we can do it well!
We must count our blessings and take every opportunity to practice gratitude and empathy.
As things stand, schools are allowed to open on the 24th January 2022. We look forward to this day with anticipation and enthusiasm.
Many thanks for your support in this matter,
2021 Covid-19 Closure Notice
Following the advice from the Ministry of Health all schools were ordered to close on the 17 June 2021. Since then, we have been facilitating home learning through various online applications. Term 2: We are now beginning this term as an online school, whilst we hope and pray for the situation to normalize, we follow advice given by the Secretary to the Cabinet, Dr Simon Miti.
SAFEGUARDING: We have had no uncomfortable or unfortunate incidents at TPS, this is good advice for “live” sessions and home learning photos. All pupils must be fully clothed for “live” sessions (no bathing suits please) All staff will be in dressed in smart/casual attire when online. We expect boys to be in T-shirts when photos are uploaded to portfolios or online learning is taking place. The usual manners and school etiquette should apply to all online and live sessions. Teachers must be addressed in the same way as they are in school and messages and emails must be polite and show how well-mannered our pupils usually are. Please give some thought to your child’s online safety. Screen time should be limited to learning time or monitored. Please see the download for Kiddle and use it as you see fit.
