HBL Week 4: 27th April - 1st May 2020


Dear Y3OP gentlemen,


Next week, we will all move into our last full week of HBL. You have all done well in coming so far and I really do hope you can persevere and carry on doing your best for this last week. Take heart in the knowledge that every single one of you should come out of this stronger, and more resilient. 

Anyway, I know that it can be really tiring to be staring at your screen for so much time during a day. That is why Ms. Diane has very kindly prepared the following tips to help you and your eyes stay refreshed and healthy. I really do hope these tips come in handy! 

1) 20: 20: 20 rule 



2) High Fi✋e your Computer! 
Make sure your computer is far away enough for a "High Five". Watch "Computer High Five" to learn more!

3) Do some Eye Yoga 

Rub your hands together and cup your eyes with your hands for your eyes to rest in the dark for 1 min. Watch "Eye Yoga" to learn!

4) Take an Eye and Mental Break

Take a minute to close your eyes and rest your MIND too. Click the link to follow a simple meditation. 


Lastly, please note that your HBL lesson plans for Term 2 Week 6 can be found here. As always, please refer to them for clarity of your lessons. 


Once again, this is also a reminder that for the duration of the HBL period, you must check your school email daily and regularly.

HBL Week 3: 20th - 24th April 2020


Dear Y3OP gentlemen,


"How are you?" It's a fairly simple and straight-forward question, but it is an important question to ask each other and to ask yourself. How are you?

I hope you have been well; I hope you have been staying strong; I hope that you have been using your time productively and meaningfully; I hope you have been striving daily to become better versions of yourself and above all, I hope that you have found the time to find joy, beauty and goodness in the little things in life. Remember, amidst the HBL lessons, always make time to do the things that are seemingly little, but mean so much. Check in on a classmate or a friend; help your younger siblings with their work; help your parents with the chores at home; or even just tell your loved ones that you love them and appreciate them. Never underestimate the ways that your actions can impact others.

As we all move into next week's HBL lessons, you should have found your rhythm and established your routines. Your teachers and I have all tried very hard to help you understand the importance of having good routines that you can abide by. If you still do not understand why we go to the trouble of doing that, I highly encourage you to read this short article. I can only hope that each and every single one of you is also trying very hard to help yourselves. 


The HBL lesson plans for Term 2 Week 5 can be found here. As always, please refer to them for clarity of your lessons. 


Once again, this is also a reminder that for the duration of the HBL period, you must check your school email daily and regularly.

HBL Week 2: 13th - 17th April 2020


Dear Y3OP students,

 

Next week marks the second week of HBL. By now, you have gone through a few days of HBL and I hope you are settling into the different pace and style of learning. It is important for you to develop a set of strong habits and adhere to them. For example, make it a habit to wake up at the same time daily, make your bed, do your daily grooming, before logging in by 0745hrs for Contact Time with your FTs. Another wonderful habit to develop is to always check your lesson plans the night before so that you can prepare all necessary materials for the lesson the next day. These habits and routines may seem trivial; but if you can find the discipline to do them every single day, I promise you that you will one day be able to have the discipline and the ability to face even bigger challenges.  


On another note, I sincerely hope that everyone is keeping well at home. Do remember to stay in touch with your classmates and friends through online platforms and do remember to spend quality time with your family and loved ones. Find the time to read a good book, to listen to some good music, and to do some simple exercises such as sit-ups and push-ups. Remember, how you choose to spend the time you have at home is entirely up to you. If you choose to make it meaningful, it will be meaningful.
