Ensuring the health and safety of our students and all school staff from Covid-19 is our prime concern. With the 4 confirmed cases of Covid-19 last week, the school has taken an additional precautionary measure by hiring a reputable and certified disinfectant company to do disinfecting and sanitizing work in all classrooms, special rooms and offices, and whole school compound on Tuesday, 8th February 2022. This is in addition to the current Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) observed by the school as part of the school’s effort to minimize the risk of the virus spreading amongst our school community. We hope this will provide peace of mind for parents and all of us in the school. We also wish those infected students a speedy recovery.
At the same time, we continue to encourage parents to give their full support and cooperation by not sending their children to school when they are sick or not feeling well.
We would like to thank parents, students, teachers and staff for their understanding and cooperation during this challenging time.

Schools across the nation began their first term for 2022 on 3rd January only for all levels. This was the first-time students were returning to school for face-to-face learning since the second wave of COVID-19 hit the nation. St. George's School saw 154 eager students from Year 10 and 11 return to school for on-site learning.
As part of the school's Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for students to return for on-site learning, all students had their temperatures checked before being allowed on school premises. The new normal also required the students to ensure they were double vaccinated and then, to conduct Antigen Rapid Tests (ART) upon arrival. Assigned teachers were on hand to assist students in carrying out the tests. This testing is set to be conducted every Monday morning in classes.
In like manner, all teachers and staff also underwent ART in a set room before being allowed admittance into the respective offices and staffroom. It was the second time teachers and staff conducted the tests as all were required to do so the previous week in preparation for the students' return to school grounds. Students, teachers, and staff all tested negative on Monday, 3rd January 2022 and so classes were carried out with minds at ease.
Despite the many challenges COVID-19 has brought and caused in its wake, St. George's School remains undeterred and steadily resolute in ensuring students receive the best education, whether from on-site learning or online.
On 3 January 2022 St George's School will be welcoming the Years 10 and 11 students to on-site learning. This will be followed by the Years 7 to 9 students on 17 January 2022. The transition back to school will see parents and guardians busy making school fee payments and purchasing school materials for their child/children.
St.George's School has implemented the necessary Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for parents and visitors. All parents and visitors to the school are required to scan on the BruHealth QR code and have their body temperature checked before they are allowed to enter the school compound. Only those with green or yellow QR code are allowed entry. Those who are not fully vaccinated are required to show their Antigen Rapid Test (ART) results.
Seats are set apart for parents or visitors to wait their turn to be served at the school counters so that social distancing is practised. Hand sanitizers are also provided at the entrance to the school compound.
The Covid-19 pandemic has caused widespread disruptions to schools and centres of learning. Nevertheless, with proper implementation of SOPs and good practices, our students should be safe to transition back to school.
On 30th December 2021, all teachers and administrators of St George's School did their first Antigen Rapid Test (ART) for Covid-19 as instructed by the Ministry of Education (Brunei).
The procedures to perform the ART were briefed thoroughly by Miss Jasmine for both the Kindergarten and Primary Section, and Mr Aywen for both the Secondary and Administration Section. The event went smoothly and everyone was happy to see a negative result for Covid-19.
Lastly, we are very thankful to the Government of Brunei, through the Ministry of Education, for sponsoring the essential ART kits to our beloved school.
For years, students' learning activities were limited to classrooms, usually following the passive, teacher-centric model. However, the rise in digital transformation has brought a new alternative in the form of hybrid learning.
The sudden and widespread disruption caused by the Second Wave of Covid in the country has forced educators to evolve their approach to ensure learning continuity for all students, and hybrid learning continues to be at the core of this evolution.
Hybrid learning is a new educational model that involves some students attending class in-person, while, simultaneously, others join virtually from other locations, whether that's home, a dormitory, or a cafe with internet access. While the concepts of blended and e-learning have been around for some time in our school, hybrid learning marks the next step.
A short meeting was held in School with the aim of providing a quick guideline to teachers on new normal ways to deliver lessons to student with the start of the 2022 school year. The session covered Key concepts on using Hybrid Teaching Methodology and was conducted by Teacher Luxman, the Head of ICT Department, with directives from school principal Mr. Janidi Jingan. "There's no doubt that the pandemic has highlighted the importance of building robust and resilient education systems, and leaders around the world are now exploring the best approaches for guaranteeing learning continuity in post-pandemic times. Having already proven to be a successful approach during the pandemic, Hybrid Learning is about to become the new normal of future education," said Principal Janidi. He emphasised that teachers are to use Teams as the official platform to establish communication between teachers and students.
Clean water is vital to our health and certainly an effective way to reduce the spread of diseases in our community. However, murky and discolored water has been running from our taps lately and the donation of an external water filter is indeed very timely.
St. George's School would like to thank Mr Yong Chin Aull, a Kindergarten parent, for his generous donation. We are extremely grateful.
Students from the upper secondary classes had a chance to listen to a talk by Pg Kamal Ghadafi Pg Hj Suhaimi. They comprised Year 9 and Year 10. The talk was organised by their Commerce teacher, Mdm. Olivia Liaw.
The talk was conducted on July 29 2021, Thursday. During the talk, Mr Kamal introduced himself and offered his credentials. After that, he had us play a fun and interactive game. He gave us a piece of paper with a clock face printed on it and instructed us to make appointments with other students in the hall. After that, the students were asked to interview those with appointments on their favourite colour, food, celebrity and age. There was chaos in the hall as we scrambled to finish the tasks given before the time limit expired. When the game was over, he explained to us that this situation was what an entrepreneur would face in his daily life. He would be constantly busy, having to juggle meetings and business projects.
He then shared with us his travels and experiences around the world. Most of the time, he would be representing Brunei Darussalam in global events. Mr Kamal also shared his favourite encounters and incidents when he was abroad. He gave the students a lot of advice and has become their inspiration. He told us that we do not need to be a degree holder to be successful in business.
The talk was indeed memorable and inspiring. We look forward to more of such educational talks in the near future.

On 29th May 2021, our school welcomed a visit by the Brunei Darussalam AIDS Council. They were accompanied by Mr Iswandy Ahmad, a member of Brunei's Legislative Council. All the students of Year 9 were presented with a talk by Mr. lswandy on awareness about HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and STDs ( Sexually Transmitted Diseases). We came to know that STDs and HIV are not the same. HIV or AIDS is a form of STD. HIV is a virus that attacks the body's immune system. If HIV is not treated, it can lead to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). STD can be a variety of diseases and viruses. It is a statistical fact that if you have one or more STDs, then you are also more likely to possibly get HIV.
We also learned that in our country, Brunei Darussalam, about 34% of HIV cases range from 15-20 years old (youth) and the rest from 25-34 years old (young adults). And about 96% of those cases are men. Apart from that we were briefed on various ways HIV or any form of STDs which can be transmitted from one person to another. Both STDs and HIV are mostly transmitted to another person by some sort of sexual contamination. These diseases can also be transmitted by sharing unsterilized needles, sharing of HIV tainted blood through blood transfusion as well as breastfeeding from a mother to the child.
HIV itself doesn't really show symptoms at first and might take around 5-15 years to show prominent symptoms. The only way to know if a person has been infected by the virus is to have a HIV test from the nearest clinic as soon as possible. Even though, the HIV disease doesn't have any cure but it still can be prevented by taking some immediate safety measures such as practicing safe sex and not be promiscuous. However, other STDs such as Gonorrhea, Chlamydia and Syphilis do show symptoms such as rashes and sores around the genitals, pus discharge and irritation in and around the genitals.
Overall, we learned a lot and were encouraged to endeavour for the prevention of diseases in our country. A lot of quizzes were conducted by Mr.Iswandy and his team members to test our knowledge on what we learned. We were also informed that one should seek immediate treatment if there was suspicion of an infection. The main objective of this talk is to spread awareness to the youth who will be future leaders as they will be the ones responsible for the country's development.

"Reading should not be presented to children as a chore or duty. It should be offered to them as a precious gift." -Kate DiCamillo
