Due to the Corona-virus all schools in the Netherlands were forced to shut down temporarily. Friday, the 27th of March, marked the end of the first complete week of online learning for IST Secondary. The concept of online classes was new for everyone. It could not have been achieved without our close-knit IST community of parents, students, teachers, and other staff, who under these difficult circumstances work together to provide the best learning environment for our students. IST pays extra close attention that regular communication is maintained with students and their families, which we feel is vital during these times. Currently, in IST Secondary regular classes are taught through Google Hangout or Discord. On top of this, teachers also use Managebac, Ed-puzzle, Prowise, Loom, G-mail, and Whatsapp to give homework to students, keep in touch with them, and answer any questions they may have outside of the scheduled classes. Stay strong, we can do this together!
