“16th July 2020”

SIFUNDZANI HIGH SCHOOL RESPONSE TO COVID-19 OUTBREAK

The Covid-19 Pandemic
Consequent to the high levels of anxiety in our community and the country as a whole, the Honourable Prime Minister Mr Mandvulo Dlamini announced that His Majesty King Mswati III had instructed for the closure of schools and all Educational institutions on the 17th March 2020. Soon after that the school learnt that Cambridge Assessment International Education was not going to cancel or reschedule assessment sessions for 2020. We then resolved to strengthen (and make full use of) our Information Technology resources and continue teaching online.

• Online lessons
On the 23rd March we started online teaching and learning, initially focusing on the Advanced Subsidiary Level (AS Level) and International General Certificate in Secondary Education (IGCSE) completing classes. Eventually, online lessons were rolled out to the rest of the school, i.e. Forms 1, 2 and 3, up to the end of the first term, on the 17th April 2020.

• Second Term
We resumed online lessons on the 11th May 2020 – which we treated at the beginning of the second term. Subsequent to the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) preparations for the re-opening of schools for form fives in the country, which included training sessions on Covid-19, our completing classes, -AS Level and IGCSE classes - resumed face-to-face lessons on the 6th July.
We are now looking forward to resuming online lessons with the rest of our classes, which have been on a short break since the 2nd July.

SAFETY IN THE SCHOOL
The school is currently adhering to the guidance of the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET), the Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa (ISASA) and the Sifundzani Board, which has put in place some precautionary measures to keep our learners, staff and all involved safe and healthy, within the premises.
• Updates deemed fit for the community will continue to be communicated through our regular newsletters.

PRAYER OF ST FRANCIS

Lord make me an instrument of your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me saw love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith

Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy;
O Devine Master, grant that I may not so much seek;
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are born to eternal life.

God, bless Africa
Guard her children,
Guide her rulers,
And give her peace;
For Jesus Christ’s sake,
Amen.

THE LORD'S PRAYER

Our Father who art in heaven;
Halloweth be Thy name;
Thy kingdome come;
Thy will be done on earth ;
As it is in heaven
Give us this day, our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses;
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation
And deliver us from evil,
For thine is thy kingdom,
The power and the glory
Forever and Ever
Amen.
