18 Feb Major events planned at GOTS Pre-Primary
No more disruptions – that is the wish of Global Oak Tree Scholars (GOTS) International School’s Assistant Head of Pre-primary, Marissa Juanita Hendroff.
Having coached the little scholars at GOTS International School since 2019, Hendroff knows how much better physical classes are compared to online lessons.
Sadly, Covid-19 forced schools to close for much of the last 24 months, disrupting young children’s education.
While GOTS International School is committed to physical classes, it has offered parents the option of online learning to those who want it.
“I hope the rising number of Covid-19 cases does not lead to schools closing,” said Hendroff, who studied Early Childhood Education at Segi College, Subang Jaya.
“Online lessons for the older children are not too bad, but the younger ones need a personal touch. That was what many missed out on in 2020 and 2021.
“This year, many new enrolments are even younger than the previous batches. So, they will need more attention.
“Hopefully, schools will remain open as most adults have received their vaccines. Many have also got their booster shots.
“Young kids are also getting their vaccines. That should make everyone safer.”
Hendroff, who was recently appointed Assistant Head of Pre-primary, hopes big events will return to the school this year.
One is to have a proper graduation after two ‘virtual’ ones. She also hopes to stage a concert this year.
“We hope to have those back this year,” said Hendroff, who has been teaching for the past nine years.
“But, most importantly, we all want the children to realise their fullest potential before they go to primary school.”
