Virtual education has been an incredible learning experience for me, while in the beginning, I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to manage all my school work at home, as the weeks have progressed I have learnt many valuable life skills. With each class presenting with fun and creative challenges in the education field, in my school hours, I’ve never had a dull moment. From the interactive meetings that we have daily with our teachers and the creative apps that we have been set work on, I can honestly say that being part of this virtual learning experience has helped me grow as a person and as a learner. - Isobel M4

Hello my name is Isla and my virtual school experience has been great so far! here are my highlights.I wake up and have a 10-minute catch up with my teacher and my friends which really makes me happy and committed and I feel ready to start my day. I always feel motivated after this call because I know my plan for the day.Right now I am doing my P6 exhibition and I really enjoy working in a small group and sharing my ideas and listening to my team’s ideas.And my last one, and the one that is the most important to me, is how much support we get from our teachers and how hard they work for the students. Thank you teachers! - Isla P6

The Coronavirus has undoubtedly posed as a great challenge for families across the globe. In light of this, SIS had to promptly and abruptly adopt and adapt to a virtual educational system, a system that has never been traditionally used as a primary teaching and learning tool up until now – alike thousands of public, private and higher educational schools trying to ensure that their students are provided with the same standard of education in par with their curriculum; in hopes to restore a sense of routine and familiarity during a time of great uncertainty. We, as parents, are incredibly grateful for the support and professionalism demonstrated by SIS’s staff with specific regards to their persistent care for our children on both an academic and emotional level and ensuring that their students are still working in par with the learning objectives of the curriculum. We would like to say thank you to all of the amazing Teachers, Tutors and Heads of School for their admirable dedication they have shown towards our children during these tough weeks ,and possibly months, of virtual schooling. Our son Amir is managing virtual school well thanks to the unconditional support and positivity displayed by his Tutor Mrs Kearney and his teachers. You are all super devoted and an amazing team . #YoMeQuedoEnCasa

We feel incredibly fortunate to be part of the Sotogrande International School ohana (family in Hawaiian).   The school’s approach and performance during this necessary lockdown is simply world-class and amazing.   The school took the time prior to the announcement of the lockdown to prepare for virtual teaching.   They worked tirelessly to ensure that on Day One the students would not miss a beat of school.  They took inputs the first couple days and quickly incorporated them into the program, including adjusting the schedule to accommodate families and teachers.  Not an easy task.   And EVERY DAY, the teachers log-in enthusiastic, positive, and ready to continue to teach the students.   The teachers and staff have gone above and beyond our wildest expectations and I am in awe of their efforts — from transforming their houses in music studios and classrooms, to conducting PE activities inside and providing continuous challenging to keep the kids engaged and active.   We understand this is not a one-for-one replacement for in-person classroom time, but these efforts and instruction are keeping the students on track with a consistent routine and top-notch instruction during this difficult time.   We just can’t thank the school enough, words can’t express our sincere thanks!
