What we offer

Frequently asked questions

Yes. CMCLS will deliver lessons mainly online. Both Synchronous and Asynchronous learning will be adopted.

– Synchronous learning refers to delivery of lessons to a group of students at the same time, usually done via Video Conference.

– Asynchronous learning is each student studying on his/her own time (i.e. watching video or reading books not with the class).

Yes, this can happen when the government declares it safe for children to come to school. Once declared safe, physical face-to-face classes will be introduced gradually (i.e. once a week then twice a week then thrice a week).

It is still the teachers who will do the teaching. Although adult supervision and assistance may be needed to make sure students are properly paying attention or doing the activities correctly – specially the younger ones.

CMCLS will respect parents decision not to have their child come to school for face-to-face classes with two conditions:

– their reason is sensible

– the parents will help their children catch up with the lessons discussed in the face-to-face classes

We will make it a point that all online classes will be recorded and will be accessible to the respective students as necessary. These can be downloaded and viewed at a later time.

As much as the school and its teachers can make lessons very interesting for the students, the environment where the child accepts the learning will play a vital role.

We advise parents to make it conducive for their children to study with the following tips:

– choose or designate a place where learning should happen and always use that area for study.

– the place you choose should be comfortable but not too much otherwise it might be more conducive for sleeping

– the place should ideally have natural light coming in. Studies show that exposure to natural light improves student behavior and mood for learning.

– make sure that all notifications from FB messenger and other applications on the mobile device are turned off during classes to prevent them from distracting the student.

– if possible, do not use that same area for playing or other activities not related to learning. This will help trigger the student’s mind to be in “study mode” whenever entering that area.

– maintain routines and rules in the home. Children will function better if they stay on a schedule and rules are implemented strictly.

– don’t forget to include breaks like snacks or recess in the schedule. Learning should not be associated with stress but rather with fun.

– make lessons short but deliberate. This will help avoid the child’s mind to wander off during online classes and not associate it with “boring and lengthy” activities. It is advisable for lessons not to be longer than 20 minutes at a time. This will also be the standard length of each online CMCLS class.

– mix screen time with other traditional learning activities such as textbooks, pen & paper, cut-outs, etc.

Please refer to the answer in item number 6.

The answer varies from child to child. Although we can say that maturity plays a big role on whether a child can learn online independently, we suggest the following for the parents:

* Preschool to Grade 1 pupils – should be assisted in the whole duration of the online learning.

* Grade 2 and Grade 3 pupils – parents should try to test if their child can learn on their own. Let them control the classes with your supervision. Do not leave them during the classes.

* Grade 4 to Grade 6 pupils – parents should guide the children by reading the lesson objectives to them and make them explain it in their own words.  Tell them what output is expected of them and make them repeat it in their own understanding. Their work should be checked every once in a while.

* Grade 7 above – capable to study independently but it is natural for the children to stray from their online classes if they are not supervised. Make them read the lesson objectives on their own and check if their understanding is correct. Check if they understand what they need to do and what output is expected of them. Check if the expected outputs are completed and submitted.

Quizzes and other activities can be time-bound per item which prevents students from searching for answers online. Other activities have randomized questions and choices  to prevent students from exchanging answers with their classmates remotely. Lastly, Google has a feature that can reliably check for plagiarism and detect work pulled out from the internet. We plan to use all these features.
