Distance Learning Explained

All BGS families had the opportunity this week to hear more about the Distance Learning program from Dr Ray Swann, Deputy Headmaster and Head of the Crowther Centre.

Dr Swann hosted webinars for parents over two nights and talked about the teaching and learning principles behind distance learning, how the program is structured and the role parents can play while students are learning off-site.

His key takeaways were that parents can assist by:

  • helping the boys to maintain their physical and mental health and wellbeing,
  • creating a learning culture at home,
  • focusing on gratitude

Dr Swann reminded parents that teaching staff remain available to the boys regardless of physical location and there are many co-curricular student activities/programs on offer to students.
