Is the school ready to use virtual classrooms when needed? (e.g. teaching lessons online if the school is closed, e.g. during COVID-19 closures)

Yes - Branksome Hall Asia has been very successful in offering online lessons through eBranksome, Branksome Hall Asia's online learning platform.
For several years, there has been a requirement for all departments and year groups to develop resources for the Learning Management System so that students can access resources remotely. When faculty develop their unit planning they work closely with the technology integrator to ensure that our students develop the necessary competencies for the 21st Century educational model. Team teaching with technology integrator is part of the normal week and as a consequence of this approach all of our faculty are comfortable using technology. So when asked to deliver online learning, the technology team spent a day training our teaching faculty and we were ready to deliver a high quality education online.
