PETERSFIELD HIGH SCHOOL

Principal’s Back to School Welcome Speech

Today we are in a virtual setting to set the stage for the school year for the very first time in the history of education in Jamaica. So at this time I want to welcome you to this our virtual orientation for back to school on October 5, 2020. I am Mr. Roan Green your new principal. It is such a pity that I will not be able to meet with you face to face at the start of a new school year. But I hope that we will get the opportunity someday. The big question on all your minds however is, “How will we be operating come October 5?” You will join your teachers in the Google Classroom, Google meet, Zoom and through Whatsapp. Other teachers may create other avenues for engagement as some among us do not have access and so we will have to get materials to your homes. No matter what will obtain, you must begin to prepare yourselves mentally and emotionally to physically and intellectually embrace the new normal for schooling.

Here at Petersfield High School, all your teachers are committed to ensuring that you will get the best out of the experience; especially those among you who are preparing for external examinations. I implore you to take responsibility for your learning. Manage your time wisely. Follow your timetable as though you were in the physical space here at Petersfield. Your teachers will be on time online for classes as the timetable dictates so be on time and be prepared. Outside of being at home, all classroom rules must be followed. This process if it is to be successful and effective necessitates self- discipline on your part. Teachers will not be condoning any lute behavior while on screen. The Dean of Discipline will elaborate on the rules governing online classes, but let me hasten to instruct you that you must be properly attired for school and you must be respectful.
