Sirindhorn Secondary School for Girls will start online learning next Tuesday, 1st June, and this will continue until 11th June (2 weeks).

Thereafter, the usual class size of 40 will be reduced to 2 groups of 20, and these two groups will go back to school on alternate days until further notice. The group that stays at home will continue with online learning, day on, day off.

I have two daughters at this school and the question is, will their respective groups go on the same day or alternate days? Sod's Law being what it is, the chauffeur, me, will be on daily runs rather than once every 2 days. :) :) :)

I feel sure that a little chat with "whoever" at the school, perhaps armed with some tasty mangos will allow your girls to go to school on the same day

No chance! Piss ups and breweries come to mind. They have always split the classes down the middle, for admin purposes, 20 in Group A and 20 in Group B. They strictly allocated students to each group by how well they did in the entrance exam for that year. The top 20 students are allocated to group A, the remainder are allocated to group B. Within each group they are listed by name alphabetically. I know the youngest daughter is in Group B, but I have yet to learn what group the eldest daughter will be allocated to. She seems to think she will also be in Group B. Now you might think that will work out well for me and I will only have to run them to school on alternate days. I started out with piss ups and breweries but now move on to Sod's Law. There is no guarantee, none whatsoever, that Year 1 Group B will go to school on the same days as Year 4 Group B. The logical approach is not always the approach adopted by the school. I guess I will find out before too long. After all, they start school in 4 days time.

One for Ivor the professor, any ideas how they are delivering education 5 different ways? On-site (in the school presumably) and online (study at home) I am familiar with. On-air, presumably broadcast by the Thai Broadcasting system. But the other two, on-hand and on-demand are not so obvious.

No idea . We will probably be told the day before we start the term or (more likely) not be told at all.
I'm still waiting to hear about getting a jab before term starts too.

I expect to be left to our own devises, as they did last term (when most of the Thai teachers treated it like it was a holiday).
