This page has been created to keep you up to date about the situation surrounding the Covid-19 situation in Belgium and how it affects our community or a possible visit to our school.
Belgium is currently in a ‘lockdown’ situation until 19 April, to limit the spread of coronavirus/Covid19. Read the full update of our Head of School, Ms. Purves, HERE.
During this period of ‘lockdown’, the St John’s campus will be closed. We shall continue to operate remotely, both in terms of education and in terms of school operations.
We are extremely grateful for our wonderful staff at St John’s – their flexibility, creativity, and energy in testing times is phenomenal. The impressive efficiency and collaboration with which we have been able to react to this difficult situation is a clear result of a global effort. Our teachers, staff, families, and students have worked together admirably, while being a part of an international group has also provided us with the resources and expertise to achieve our purpose.
This situation has made even more patent our commitment to the Inspired values of excellence and education for life.
Suspension of on-campus learning
Under official order from the Belgian authorities, all schools within Belgium will remain closed from Monday for three weeks. To bring continuity of learning for our students, we have made the decision, to move from in-school to at-home learning.
We have put in place our Remote Learning Plan which will enable pupils to continue their studies from home. This was implemented on Monday, 16 March and is currently planned to run until Friday 3 April. If the ‘lockdown’ is extended beyond this date, we have a plan in place so that we can lay the foundations for continued success.
