8. If you are a parent reading this announcement, please be assured that your child is fully prepared to take responsibility for his/her own learning. The following links provide tips on how to support your child during FHBL:
9. Share good cyber and health habits – focus on the tasks instead of surfing other sites or checking social media; take regular breaks from learning so that the mind can consolidate and sustain effort; take time to exercise and eat well; take the opportunity to bond as a family.
We are confident that every Junyuanite will know what to do to continue learning even when they are not in school. If you have queries and clarifications that cannot be resolved via the above instructions, do contact the school:
