KWC & Buchan to reopen on 22nd June

Posted in School News

King William's College and The Buchan School will reopen its doors to pupils from Monday 22nd June.

The School, which has been running a successful online teaching programme for all its students during lock down, will follow the normal school day for all year groups, whilst implementing additional measures to ensure the health and safety of pupils and staff.

Principal Joss Buchanan said:

"This is a cause for celebration for all of us and the Island's Government deserves considerable credit for the way it has handled the crisis.

"We are anxious now to get the school back onto site as quickly as possible both for educational reasons and for the well being of pupils. Many of them - many of us - have found the last few months extremely challenging and we need to get the community back together again and resume normal interaction."

Online support will continue to be provided for overseas students and pupils who do not return this term on a voluntary basis.

Mr Buchanan said:

"We are enormously excited to welcome the pupils back and for the hubbub of normal school life to return. It has been the most extraordinary of times but the worst, we trust, is now well and truly behind us."
