E – Learning at Brebner

Dear Parent / Guardian

Over the months we have been shown the necessity  of adaptability to ever changing circumstances.

Teachers have adapted to new ways of teaching and thus e-learning  is absolutely crucial. At Brebner, various teachers have initiated e-learning programmes via Whatsapp groups, throughout the Lockdown period to ensure academic progress is made in all subjects and all grades.

We call upon the Brebner family’s assistance to ensure that each Brebnerian remains actively involved in these Academic Whatsapp groups , as teachers continue to work under unpredictable circumstances. The SMT  would like emphasize that important information and academic  work will be communicated via the Academic Whatsapp groups due to in-class teaching time not always being guaranteed. It is our  goal to assist learners to find new ways to maintain their academic progress, despite the various obstacles.

We are aware of the various obstacles leading to a learner not actively continuing to to participate in the Academic Whatsapp groups but unprecedented assistance is needed to ensure all Brebnerians’ academics remains TOP Priority. Please communicate with the school if there are special circumstances for a learner getting behind or not actively participating in the e-learning programmes  and we will try to assist.

We sincerely appreciate all the assistance from our parents/guardians thus far in maintaining the success of  our e-learning programmes.

Be blessed and stay safe.

Online Tests Gr 8 to 11

Dear Parents/ Guardians & Brebnerian

Brebner has launched online tests for Brebnerians to do at home, as a measure to ensure their academic progress during Covid -19 Lockdown and post-Lockdown.

We have for the last five weeks been tracking participation and results of this online assessment and have deemed it in the best interest of each  learner that we see a certain percentage of this online assessment as formal assessment i.e. a percentage of all this online test results will be used towards the year mark for Gr 8 to 11.Thus the work learners are doing at home is not in vain but is contributing towards their end-of-year results.

Please note we are aware that some learners might encounter technical difficulties with submitting the online test, if so the learner is requested to notify Mrs Lackey immediately so the issue can be resolved. Also if learner has no internet access, please notify Mrs Lackey.

Any queries regarding Academic Whatsapp groups for various subjects or General Whatsapp group per grade please contact Mrs Lackey – Head of Curriculum for 2020 via office.
