CKWA e-learning continues to be carried out in an orderly manner during the epidemic. As the one and only school that launched e-learning on the originally planned school opening day and has been teaching new learning content, CKWA would like to emphasize our gratitude to the efforts of all teachers and the cooperation of all parents!
Further to the Beijing authorities confirming the school opening days for G12 and G9, CKWA now confirms that May 11th will be the school opening day for our G12 and G9 students. We believe that the school opening day for all other grades will be confirmed soon. Once we receive further information, we will inform you immediately to ensure that you and our children have time to prepare thoroughly for the school reopening.
Smooth communication is critical to allowing families and the school to support each other. Dear parents, please pay attention to the recent communication from the school.
About tuition: As we stated in the prior Q&A document, the school supports all Kaiwen families to pull through the difficulties. The school promises that we will not raise the tuition fee for next academic year. The school will continue to offer tuition discount to families who have more than one child studying at CKWA. The school will only start the fee collection after the school fully reopens. The school will continue to offer the early bird discount/full payment discount in the payment for the new academic year. The school will collect statistics and make a calculation of the meal fee, school bus fee and boarding fee. We will convert the remaining credit into the payment for next school year or refund to some families as they prefer.
About learning progress: As CKWA has been teaching new content since the beginning of e-learning, we are very confident that we will accomplish all teaching content of all courses as planned based on the original school calendar.
About class make-up: Although Beijing authorities have confirmed that there will be no class make-up at weekends and during the summer holiday, CKWA will continue to fulfill the prior promises made. We will use the four ASA periods each week to consolidate the core module of study. We will provide free and voluntary Kaiwen Feature Program sessions on Saturdays. During the summer break, we will provide two rounds of two-week enrichment programs free of charge, to strengthen the reading, writing, sports and arts skills of our students. We would like to hereby ask you to cooperate with us by clicking the link and filling in the class make-up survey. Based on the survey result, we will start to design the Saturday Kaiwen Feature Program and the summer Kaiwen Enrichment Program.
On April 14th and 15th, we have continued to arrange for families to pick up CNC textbooks from the school in a non-contact way. We would like to pay special gratitude to the families who picked up their textbooks on April 2nd and 3rd.
On April 15th, Kaiwen families who haven’t returned to Beijing will receive a letter from the school. We suggest these families start making plans to return to Beijing so that they can finish the 14-day quarantine before the school reopens. In this way, all students can attend the school safely and healthily once the school restarts in May.
- 4月16日，小学部的凯文家庭将收到办公室和班主任的重要沟通。为了配合教委在疫情中的频繁的学生和家庭的信息统计工作，学校Power School的信息系统将开放给所有的小学家庭，请每个家庭自助完善信息，这个信息系统的完善将帮助学生完成来自官方的各项信息统计工作，避免我们的老师不断地向您收取信息。此项工作，中学部的家庭已经在学年初支持学校填写过一次。
On April 16th, CKWA primary families will receive an important communication from the school office and homeroom teachers. To allow us to respond to the frequent student and family information collection work requested by the education bureau, the school will give all primary families access of PowerSchool so that they can fill-in the required data. We would kindly ask all primary families to fill in your personal information, as this will help us to accomplish the information collection work for various organizations and save our teachers from asking you information repeatedly. The secondary families have already filled in their information at the beginning of the school year.
On April 22nd, all Kaiwen families will receive progress reports from the school, which reflects teachers’ appraisal of our students for the past 9-week of e-learning.
From 7.30 to 8.30pm on April 21st, CKWA well-being classes for parents will continue to be launched every Tuesday night. For 4 consecutive Tuesdays from April 21st, principal Christine Xu will be leading the topic How to foster the thinking skills of children in life. You are more than welcome to attend.
For the Labour Day holiday, the school will act in accordance with the originally scheduled school calendar. The holiday will be from May 1st to May 3rd (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). The school will not exchange working days and holidays to make a five-day holiday.
We look forward to the school reopening and the return of our Grade 9 and Grade 12 students on May 11th. We believe that the date for the full reopening of the school will be confirmed soon. The school will spare no efforts in our preparation of the school for reopening, with the best possible epidemic prevention measures to ensure that all Kaiwen students can study and live in a healthy and safe environment.
