OK, I see that many do not read the blog. But interestingly enough, I had to use all the attachments to the blog for a consultation today on summer school options. Now, I will not name names....but it seems if one dutifully read the blog, one would know how many summer school options existed.
Even though we have Covid and its pandemic raging, technology has US and Canadian schools, even schools in China, Cyprus, Poland, Ukraine, France, Netherlands, Spain, France, Germany invite me to fairs to sites...to get to know more about their schools. It felt as if I had taken a trip to one of my national conferences and visited booths...picking up paraphernalia to give students here in Jamaica.
I have always warned students to practice due diligence. Watch the postings, follow up, be ahead of the information by doing the work. In college, boarding school or a graduate school program, information will come at our students from every angle. Learn to process from now, by biting off a bit every day and digesting it. We are just preparing you for that big, academic world ahead.
CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER:
