Weekend Assessment

20 Oct, 2023

Assalamu alaikum waramatullahi wabarakatu!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health and high spirits. We are writing to inform you about an exciting new initiative that we believe will have a profound impact on your child's education and development.

In our ongoing efforts to provide the best possible education and support to our students, we are pleased to announce the introduction of a weekly weekend assessment program. This assessment will be administered through our school's web portal, and we would like to take a moment to clarify the purpose and significance of this initiative.

First and foremost, we want to emphasise that the introduction of weekly assessments is not an attempt to shift responsibilities onto parents and guardians. Instead, it is a collective effort to enhance your child's learning experience. We recognize the importance of a collaborative partnership between the school and home, and we believe that these assessments will strengthen that bond.

Here are a few reasons why your involvement in this initiative is essential:
  • Exposure to Technology: In today's rapidly evolving world, digital literacy is more crucial than ever. These weekly assessments will provide your child with an opportunity to become more comfortable with using devices for educational purposes. This is a valuable skill that will serve them well in their academic journey and beyond.
  • Quick Feedback: One of the key benefits of the weekly assessments is the rapid feedback it provides. As soon as the assessment period elapses, you will have access to your child's results through our web portal. This allows you to monitor their progress more closely and address any areas where additional support may be needed.
  • Individualised Learning: With this program, we can tailor our approach to each student's needs more effectively. By understanding your child's strengths and areas requiring improvement, we can personalise their educational experience.
  • Encouraging Regular Reading: Another significant advantage of the weekly assessments is that they promote active reading. Students will be encouraged to regularly engage with their study materials, fostering a deeper understanding of the subjects. This is in contrast to the traditional approach of studying primarily for mid-term tests and final examinations.
We encourage you to engage with your child as they take these assessments. Be there to support, encourage, and discuss their experiences. Your active participation in their learning journey can make a significant difference.

We understand that this may be a new experience for some of you, and we want to assure you that we are here to provide support and guidance every step of the way. If you encounter any difficulties or have questions about the assessments, please do not hesitate to reach out to the management, who will be more than happy to assist you. A demonstration video will be sent to the parents/guardians Whats'app group.

We are excited about the possibilities this program holds for your child's education. We believe it is a powerful tool for continuous improvement and growth. Together, we can help your child reach their full potential.

Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership in nurturing our students. We look forward to this journey of learning and growth with you.

Warm regards,

Mikha'il. A. Atere
