“Since social distancing has been occurring, such a greater number of pupils have lost. Some of their social interactions,” explained Lara Abu Ata, mother of three at BSAK. “I hope that my children will be able to engage in deeper learning. Since technology may often interfere with parts of lessons.”

BSAK twins Omar and Zain Tashamneh, who are in their ninth year of study. Said they are eager to return to campus “Distance learning is not the best way to learn as it restricts your social time. Decreases social interaction and makes it difficult to engage.” Said Omar “I am very excited to be reunited with former teachers and friends after a very long time,” he further added.

In a reaction to the news that children would return to school, Stephanie Jerron-Quarshie said it was reassuring. “My daughter is in Year 11 [at BSAK] and will be starting her mock exams this week, so it’s a critical period for her.”
