Reddam House International Student Perspective – Online Learning
Cristina Luiceanu, a Year 13 boarder from Romania, provides us with her perspective on online learning. Cristina is currently applying to Oxford and Yale universities so spends much time studying at weekends and socialising with friends.
“Reddam House School has quickly and effectively adapted to the requirements set due to COVID-19.
The digitalized environment not only embraces online learning, where the teacher staff is able to teach and communicate with the students, but more importantly, the Reddam House students and teachers are still strongly encouraged to take part in the numerous activities that make Reddam House a close community.
This range of activities expands from weekly sport challenges, for all ages, to our dynamic Mental Health & Wellbeing team, which consists of tips regarding the health of our eyes, mindfulness exercises, as well as sharing articles on these topics and more. Some of our peers were delighted to share their cooking and photography skills in our weekly contests, set by students themselves.
When it comes to virtual learning, teachers manage to effectively deliver the lessons, as well as support us in taking part to various activities that help us unwind away from school. For instance, we gladly take part to the Kahoot games and we had the opportunity to present our pets to each other.
All in all, Reddam House promotes dynamic engagement within the community, whilst they meet the requirements and overcome the barrier of social isolation set by this pandemic.”
