With the closure of the educational institutions, the Klabb 3-16 in the centers too had to be suspended. To make up for this interruption in service, the Foundation for Educational Services is offering service users the possibility of following online activities with the Playworkers of their centers, and live HW assistance with warranted teachers.
Parents / legal guardians who are already registered for the service, and would like their children to follow the online activities, are to contact the Centre Coordinator of their respective center and inform him, so that they will be given a link to access the activities. The same applies for the LIVE online HW assistance.
Parents / legal guardians who are not registered with the service, are encouraged to send an email to email@example.com to be guided on how to apply for the service.
These two modes of communication are being offered in a bid to maintain contact with the students, and also help them with their academic work. All the services are being offered free of charge, including the HW assistance.

Intensive work is underway so that with the schools’ closure our students will not miss out on their learning. The Ministry for Education is giving its reassurance that the Ministry is looking at all the possible scenarios and challenges which can arise.
Preparatory work is underway to ensure all students will continue to receive quality education by means of high standards of digital platforms. Aware of the fact that we may have students who do not have access to the internet or do not have a computer, the ministry will launch various initiatives including free internet and the provision of computers. We are referring to the period when our schools will be closed.
In addition to providing free internet service to cover the period that the schools will be closed, for those students who do not have a computer, laptop or tablet, the Ministry for Education will provide them with a computer to use during the period that the schools are closed until the 11th April, 2021.

The pandemic Covid-19 is playing havoc with our lives, not less so with our children’s schooling. On the positive side, home-learning and tele-schooling have stimulated parents and guardians to participate more closely in their children’s education. During this experience, parents have become more aware of the many issues that influence their children’s –young or teenagers- schooling.
Professor Charles Farrugia recently launched the educational blog Back to Basics. The blogs explore different aspects of teaching and learning. These blogs are directed mainly at parents/guardians but teachers and other educators may find them useful as well.
