Families share how online schooling gives them more time together
What makes online schooling special to our community? For many, it's the chance to finally spend precious time with family. Without commutes and lengthy school days draining time, and without school worries detracting from happy time together, our families have shared that they now have more time than ever to bond.
As we approach the holiday season, let's take a look at how some of our families enjoy their precious moments together.
Time with Lukas
What's better than baking with your children during the holidays?
Check out Lukas and his brother Niklas cooking up some delicious Christmas cookies.
Time with Surya
"You do things because you really want to, not because you're in that confined environment where you’re expected to."
Time with James
Year 8 student James's favourite place is Cornwall, so it's wonderful that the family get to spend time together there.
As an animal friendly family, they always take their dogs along too!
Time with Skye
"We’ve made Vikings, Roman Centurions, Minecraft costumes and so much more and the physical skills he has learnt as a result have been great for him."
Time with Sinan
"What we all enjoy is finding nice places to have lunch, dinner or even just a tea with a cookie."
Time with Noah
Year 7 student Noah and his mum love to spend "lovely days out" in nature in between his lessons.
Time with Mia
"Family fufu making Sundays and dancing to the beat of the African drum."
With learning that follows you wherever you go, dream family holidays can become a reality at any time.
Time with the Kanagasabais
With dad often travelling for work, Mrs. Kanagasabai tells us that they rarely had time to review school work together.
Now, they can spend more time together as a family, whether they're helping with homework or out on excursions like this.
Time with Freddy and Zak
Along with their brother Luca, skiers Freddy and Zak have been enjoying their studies at King's InterHigh for several years now — and they love fun family treks like this just as much as their lessons.
Time with Will
"In the afternoons, my mum and I have lunch together, and maybe a game of tennis if the weather is nice, or I may work on a Lego build.
If want to attend the village during the week, I can catch up on my lessons when I get home. In the village, because I’m only 11 years old, my mum has to come too, which means she has to be a villager and dress in costume. She loves it as much as I do and I like having her there!"
Time with Grace
Animals are family too! Grace, Year 11, likes to spend time with her kittens (Pippa and Leon) as well as her less furry family members.
