WIST Newsletter

Dear Parents,

It has been such a super week of learning, despite the challenges of COVID and electricity cuts this week.  

It has been great to see our youngest students (Pre School and Year 1 and 2) back on the School Campus.  Thank you so much for the cooperation of all families in providing PCR tests, which enabled us to ensure a safe environment for all. 

The authorities have given us permission to open next week, for our students from Year 3, as long as we strictly adhere to our COVID safety protocols.  

We will therefore open the campus for students in Years 3-6, from next Tuesday 1st February and we will open for Secondary students, in Years 7-10, from Wednesday 2nd February (mock students from Years 11-13 will be in from Monday).  

All students will require a negative test to come back to campus.  Please send your child’s negative test result to our school nurse:  mukaddam.mirzaeva@wist.uz  

No student will be allowed on campus without a negative test result.  

Our ability to open, is, of course, contingent on continuing positive numbers between now and next week.

For those parents that have children working online, we do understand this can prove quite challenging for many of you. We are therefore refining our online provision based on parent and student feedback, and this will be communicated on Monday.  

Finally, the very best of luck to our students in Year 11, 12, and 13 who will be sitting their mock examinations next week.  These are very important examinations as it allows teachers and students to determine what they are capable of producing, under genuine examination conditions, so that further progress can be made before the final examinations in the summer.  

Have a safe and healthy weekend and we look forward to seeing the children back next week.  

Best wishes,

Brian Platts
