We have implemented distance learning practices for all students of Amity School Dubai until June 2020. Every students’ curriculum will include a mixture of pre-recorded classes and interactive online sessions with class and subject teachers. We will continue to reinforce all lessons by providing follow-up reading material and fun activities that help students understand their subject matter better.
We appreciate your support and willingness to adapt to remote learning. Although classes are being delivered online, we understand that these are challenging times for our students and parents. Amity’s leadership team and community are here to support parents and students through the transition. Amity School Dubai will continue to teach and effectively implement lessons online, even when schools remain closed for students.
“Many sectors in our society are on pause, waiting for normal life to resume. Yet education is different. Rather than being on pause, education is now in the fast lane.” Dr. Abdulla Al Karam, Director General of Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).
Amity Dubai staff and teachers are available throughout the week to help our parents and students embrace these new methods of learning. To share your suggestions and feedback, please email email@example.com
