With a huge focus this year on reading we have introduced Drop Everything and Read sessions once a week. During this time students are expected to drop everything they are doing and read for pleasure. It is aimed at encouraging independent reading and allows the students to develop an ethos that reading is fun. We trialed out first one on Friday and it was a huge success. It was lovely walking around the school seeing all the children getting involved in reading and enjoying a good book.
We look forward to sharing our next D.E.A.R session with you in the coming weeks.
As per the Malaysian Prime Minister’s announcement on movement restrictions in regards to COVID-19, Straits International School Penang will be temporarily implementing distance learning education from 18 March – 9 June 2020.
We are constantly monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 and are taking measures in accordance with the national and health authorities guidelines. Our school will continuously keep parents updated on any latest developments.
