GOETHALS MEMORIAL SCHOOL




Dear Parents,

This is to inform you that due to the present situation in the hills, we will not be able to re-open school on 6th July 2017. Thus, at this present moment, parents are requested to cancel travel plans to Kurseong for 5th July 2017.

Parents are requested to constantly check the news for when the strike in the hills will be lifted. Presently, the Internet has been blocked and I am thankful to our computer teacher for uploading this message from elsewhere. As and when the Internet is restored, communication should be better. I shall keep you informed through the Internet about schools re-opening.

I further request all parents to keep their children engaged in some study daily. A number of learning apps (BYJUS Learning App, Khan Acadamy, etc.) are available on smartphones and students can also continue working on Mindspark.

Depending on how long the strike will continue, we will decide on how to cover the syllabus for the year. Presently, it is almost certain that a number of Saturdays will be full days. If the strike carries on longer, the possibility of ending the academic year a week or two later is also on the cards.

Please do keep the situation in the hills in your thoughts and prayers so that it is resolved at the earliest. Also, do pray for Mr. L. W. Landales (Senior Co-ordinator) family as he left for the heavenly abode on the 3rd of July, 2017 at 3 am.

Regards & God Bless,

Br. Robert Fernandes
