Newsletter 4th June 2021

This marks the final week of the 2020 – 2021 school year and although summer will begin with a couple weeks of social distancing, we are all hopeful the precautions will allow the students and their families to enjoy a much deserved break. This year brought change to the Tesla education program and there have been many accomplishments that need to be celebrated.

I would first like to acknowledge our primary school teaching staff. Making the transition from the traditional MOET learning model to incorporating the PYP approaches to teaching and learning has taken a tremendous amount of dedication, collaboration, and patience. Making connections with all subject areas to transdisciplinary themes is not an easy task and our teachers did a great job of embracing the process. They will get an opportunity for training over the summer, as well as a little much-deserved rest, and I look forward to seeing their development going into the fall.

We also need to celebrate the achievements of our students. Just like the teachers, they had to make adjustments to a new program and it was a pleasure to see their ability to adapt and flourish. Engaging in inquiry and discovery can be a little scary at first and our students showed resilience, perseverance, and the willingness to take risks.

In closing, I would like to say thank you to the entire Tesla community. It has been a challenging year and through all the changes and adjustments, everyone has had a great attitude and continued our focus on creating the best possible learning experience for our students.

Be safe and have a wonderful summer!

PYP Coordinator

As our city is following the regulations for Covid precaution and restricting our movement to essentials only, we successfully organized our online Three-Way Conferences between parents, student and teacher. These conferences created great opportunities for our students to reflect on the achievement of their learning goals and share their learning experiences with their parents. It was great to see smiles of pride on students’ and parents’ faces when seeing photos and video clips of learning activities students had throughout the school year. Students shared the new knowledge they learned. They also shared how they developed learner profiles to be open-minded, caring, risk-takers, thinkers, or communicators through new conceptual understandings. They demonstrated their communication, thinking, and social skills when working together in pairs, group projects, or independently in all subject areas.

The education savings package “CRISIS BEHIND, FUTURE AHEAD”

As a parent, our biggest aspiration is to help our children enjoy good education and be successful. How can we prepare our child for a solid education foundation, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic during the past 2 years?

At Tesla Education Group, we understand the concerns and difficulties of parents, especially when COVID-19 has led to global financial instability directly affecting every family. Economic experts predict we will need at least 3 years after the pandemic is over to get back to a normal recovering and developing economy.

Therefore, 2021 is an important time for parents to choose an education solution that not only is stable and suitable for children in the next 3 to 5 years but also fits the family budget. This also presents an opportunity for parents to leverage their children’s outstanding development compared to their peers.

A good financial plan now can realize parent’s dream of educating their children even in the global crisis. With that in mind, in 2021-2022, Tesla Education Group – International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme, has introduced the “CRISIS BEHIND, FUTURE AHEAD” – The education savings package for primary and secondary parents. Students will be able to learn in a modern and creative educational environment, which will get them ready for universities in any advanced educational system in the world.
