Online classes for LMB this week
La Martiniere for Boys will start online classes for students of Classes I to X and XII by the end of this week.
The school will send soft copies of the report cards to the parents of students before the online classes begin.
“We intend to start the classes by the end of this week. Parental supervision is expected during the classes. The students will be shown their answer scripts when they come back to school and given hard copies of the statement of marks,” principal John Rafi said.
Class XI has been left out of the online classes since the ICSE exams could not be completed because of the lockdown, a school official said.
The new session at La Martiniere for Boys was to begin on April 16. Chief minister Mamata Banerjee announced on Saturday that schools in Bengal would remain closed till June 10.
The online classes will start at 8.30am and teachers and students will follow a timetable with breaks in between periods, the principal said.
For senior students, the classes will be over by 1.10pm and the primary children will be done by 11.10pm.
“The teaching will be according to the level of the child and classes will be taken by teachers they are familiar with. They have had a long break and this will help them follow a routine and be in touch with studies at a time when they cannot go to school. The classes will keep them occupied,” said Rafi.
La Martiniere for Girls has already started online classes for X and XII.
