Dear KJS Families,

The quick shift to distance learning and all of the preparation that was needed for it seems a little further in the past than just last week – at least in my mind. Of course, your perspective, along with that of our students, teachers, and EAs, will almost certainly differ because you are experiencing distance learning on a daily basis. While distance learning is only forecast to continue until the Chinese New Year break, we are well prepared at KJS to continue for as long as needed.

I can say with confidence that, while distance is clearly a non-preferred approach to learning and teaching as compared to in-person, we are fully committed to supporting our students’ learning effectively while in this mode. We do not have a ‘holding- pattern mindset’, and we will be seeking your, our students’, and our staff’s feedback in an effort to improve our distance learning practices should we be required to persist with it for an extended period. I know this has been the practice over the last two years at KJS and it will continue into the future.


Kind regards,

Dr Jamie Schmitz

Acting Principal
