REPORT - 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected educational systems worldwide. We closed the school from 21st March 2020 as per order of the Government to avoid the spread of Covid-19 Pandemic. Annual Result (2019-20) was published in our school Website.
Training for online class through K12App began from 4th April 2020. An evaluation was conducted for teachers on live classes by Sr. Florine Mary, Principal and the trainer. We began the online classes on 13th April 2020. Parents and Students were satisfied with the classes. A workshop was arranged to update the teachers in K12App and online examination on 20 August 2020. Mr. Devashish Mukherjee was the resource person from Diksha Online Software Private Limited of K12App. On a trial basis to mock test was conducted so that teachers as well as students become familiar with online test. We realised that during this lockdown e-Learning systems can easily connect students and teachers via virtual classrooms.
This academic year we had a total of 1704 students and 46 teaching staff in the school. There were 23 teachers in the High School,17 in the primary and 6 in the LKG-UKG section.
SCHOOL RESULTS -2019-20
The hard work of the students under the efficient guidance of Principal, teachers, parents and staff paid rich dividends in the annual results 2020-21. 87 students appeared for the class X examination and all students secured First Division. We acknowledge and appreciate the diligent and committed work done by our teachers in preparing the students for their examination.
The year 2020, due to Covid-19 pandemic we incorporate more non-academic activities to virtual schooling. Dance, Poem, Speech, handwriting (English & Hindi) and Essay writing competitions were held virtually during the year on the occasions of Independence Day, Teachers’ day, Holy Cross Feast, Children’s Day, Christmas, Republic day, etc. On Children’s Day teachers prepared a short programme for the students and uploaded in the YouTube.
The spread of Covid-19 caused fear, restlessness and insecurity in many people. As the daily survival of the poor became a burning problem, St. Joseph’s School helped many needy families in and around Bettiah with provisions.
We are in the process of digitalising the library completely so that our students have easy access to the books and periodicals in the library. The purpose of doing this is to encourage our students to develop the habit of reading which is slowly reducing among our students.
Let me take this opportunity to thank each one of you, our parents and well-wishers for your constant support, encouragement and suggestions and assuring support during difficult times. The school is on progressive graph and you being with us will ensure that the school reaches greater heights in the days to come. Together with you, we shall achieve great goals.
Thank you very much.
