Supporting Families Home Schooling - by Mr Aidan Stallwood

Dear parents,


As we continue to try and support you with the remote learning we have partnered once again with Expating abroad (www.expatingabroad.com) who have put together a three part video series to support parents who are now home schooling their children. These are short videos (less than 10 minutes each) which are talking about some of the challenges people are facing and how to best deal with them. You don’t have to watch all three, you can just watch what applies to you and hopefully there is something in here that you find helpful. Accessible here:

In addition to this, Emily Rodgers (founder of Expating abroad) and Aidan Stallwood (Deputy Head of BPS) would like to collaborativly offer a live Questions and Answers session for any parents who have further questions around how best to support their children during this time. This will take place on Wednesday 19th February at 13:30. To join you will need to use the following Zoom link:

In the meantime we have been very pleased with the level of engagement shown by the majority of our families with the learning taking place.


As always, any questions feel free to contact me on aidan.stallwood@tes.tp.edu.tw.
