Educators to offer free online sessions
Free online activities to keep pupils occupied over the schools shutdown are to be set up by private sector educational organisations.
BrainHub Learning Centre, Planet Math and the Bermuda Principles Foundation will offer activities sessions from Monday until March 27 after schools closed over Covid-19 fears.
A spokeswoman for the three organisations said: “We know that these are unprecedented times and parents may truly need guidance and support when it comes to homeschooling at this time.”
She added that the organisations were happy to to support parents.
The spokeswoman added: “This is a global crisis that everyone is affected by.
“We want to give our time, energy and resources free of charge to ensure that the needs of children are being met.”
Maths, reading and language arts will be among the subjects offered.
The sessions will be held three times a day on an online platform that will be provided to parents by e-mail and through social media.
Any supplies and materials requirements will be announced before the lessons start.
