It’s my pleasure to say that at Premier Academy we ride the crest! According to Napoleon Hill, “Every adversity, every failure and every heartache carries with it the seed of an equivalent or a greater benefit.” Indeed, with the abrupt closure of schools, we were between a rock and a hard place; either to close shop and wait or to act proactively and ensure learning continues seamlessly. We adopted the latter. The board of Trustees and Management’s conscientious leadership coupled with passionate staff have been instrumental in successful implementation of virtual learning.
Covid-19 pandemic has therefore been a double edged sword: other than missing out on the convenience of physical learning, we have been able to tap into the bank of resources that continue to augment the hard copy resources. In the words of John Wooden “Things turn out the best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” Premier has been alive to this fact and with regards to virtual learning; the sky is no longer the limit!
In the words of Henry Ford, “When everything seems to be against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” Our star has risen with the turbulent winds. We have not only engaged with our students in the examinable subjects but also skill based disciplines; ranging from cookery, drawing, music and drama to name a few. These have immensely helped alleviate the negative pressures on students that could accompany the present moments. We hope that learning experience is enjoyable and rewarding to both the teacher and the learners.
