Education Ministry provides activities that students can engage in until they return to school

Parents of BPSS Preschoolers will be provided with “Beginning of the Year Curriculum” learning activities.  These activities align with this week’s preschool lessons, including discovery and exploration.

Understanding that Hurricanes often induce feelings of anxiety and worry, we wish to support students and parents in safeguarding their physical and mental health and wellness over the next two days. Therefore, students within the BPPS Primary Schools are encouraged to spend time over the next two days reading from their home libraries and journaling about their experiences during the storm closure.

Students at the Middle School Level should be encouraged to do independent reading and Read Alouds, review and reflect on the back-to-school workshops and sessions, DreamBox and Review of Multiplication Tables.

They should also be encouraged to journal their experience during the storm and safely engage in indoor and outdoor activities as appropriate.

In addition, students should be reminded of their mindfulness activities, which are useful for destressing.

Senior School and Success Academy Middle and senior students will engage in independent activities to facilitate their learning during the two days off campus.  Activities include but are not limited to the following:

  • Completion of any homework already assigned by the teacher
  • Journal Writing (at least two entries that are 150-200 words in length).
  • Independent Reading Activities (Evidence – A summary paragraph from reading 150-200 words in length).
  • Track the storm and provide written evidence of the environmental, mathematical and geographical impact of the storm.
  • Students should create a budget relating to the household costs for preparing for a storm, the associated costs to the island and the impact it may have on businesses.
  • Students should create a song, rap, dance or poem that can be linked to their experience during Hurricane Lee.
  • Wellness Activities

Students should be prepared to share their reports/writings during advisory on return to the school campus.

Parents of Dame Marjorie Bean Hope Academy students are being asked to practice/review functional and daily living skills while students are at home during the hurricane.
