After a successful five weeks with no reported Covid cases, RVIS continued to move towards a sense of normalcy with students on campus five days in elementary and four in secondary. RVIS is also staying committed to families choosing to remain fully virtual. Students can join in real-time or watch recorded lessons to stay connected and engaged in school.
“It is wonderful to see students enjoying many of the things they missed over the last seven months. They are playing on the playground, socializing outside with their friends and running on the football pitch,” voiced a RVIS Teacher.
RVIS parents are also thrilled with the transition to more days on campus with one parent stating, “Dropping my child off every morning makes me feel that life is slowly getting back to normal. Even my children are excited to be back at school more often!”
Safety continues to be a top priority in the school. The Deputy Head of School, Ms. Jo Garrahy, who leads the Safety Management Team remarked, “The community is committed to keeping RVIS a safe place, which makes this all possible.” She went on to say, “We have regular meetings and facility walkthroughs to review our processes and ensure the highest levels of health and safety are being adhered to by everyone on campus.”
Similar to Bahrain’s dedication to safety, RVIS holds that same dedication and is helping to usher a new sense of normal for the people living in Bahrain.
