Today 15-09-2020, the Higher Secondary section WELCOMES the Students at their comeback/ arrival to SMB-QAPS.

At long last we are about to say welcome back! We could not have imagined back in March when we closed that we would not be able to return until the following August. In the intervening months, we have seen a heroic effort on the part of our teachers and staff to provide the best possible level of learning and care for our students remotely. We feel that we had many successes, but it is equally clear that our students need to be back in school.

Schools are fundamental to child and adolescent development and well-being. In addition, there is mounting evidence to suggest that transmission of the coronavirus by young children is uncommon due to the fact that they are less likely to contract it in the first place. Finally, there is a great deal of concern that being out of school is doing more harm to many of our children and their long-term well-being than any coronavirus-contagion risk there may be.

Our plan is designed to try to limit exposures between all individuals to the greatest extent possible while recognizing the practical realities of life in schools. Our plan represents months of work and discussion and uses the lessons learned through experience, perseverance, and our best understanding of the science involved with this outbreak. The recommendations in this document are based upon what works in regards to teaching and learning as well as by what the medical and scientific experts are recommending in light of the ongoing health crisis our country is experiencing.

As always, thank you for choosing the SMB Quaid-e-Azam Public School for your children education! We greatly value and appreciate your trust placed in us! Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns and we will do our best to help.

Welcome back!
