GREEN SCHOOL EVERYWHERE

COVID-19 UPDATES

Green School Bali campus is temporarily closed in line with Government regulations in Indonesia due to the COVID-19 situation. In uncertain times though, one thing is certain: Green School Bali’s commitment to teaching and learning, the Green School Way.

Bringing our skills, values and competency-based learning from the jungle, to the homes of our community members, has been done with the collective ingenuity of our outstanding educators. We may be apart, but we stand together with each and every community member in our enduring mission: A Community of Learners Making our World Sustainable.

COVID-19 updates and advisories are available on our Green School blog ‘Parents Digital Heart of School’ here using the password for enrolled families in the weekly Green School Bali newsletter. All newsletter archives are also available here.

Green School Everywhere is our distance learning program, for currently enrolled students. A dedicated central portal contains the daily programs, choices, home and family projects, support and inspiration.

Now more than ever, it’s important that our children stay connected to their learning and to their relationships within their school community. This brings familiarity and security during a time of change.

We’ve designed Green School Everywhere, with all the key elements of our Green School Way – balancing skills, values, and knowledge and also ensuring connections for our students stay strong by providing a daily routine and weekly suite of learning offerings that give both a sense of security to the children and flexibility for parents and households.

HEAD OF TEACHING AND LEARNING – PRINCIPAL

Sal Gordon

We are a community of learners, and right now, we are all on an unprecedented and accelerated learning journey together. There is no instruction manual for this, and there is no way of knowing exactly what the next few weeks will look like. But what I do know, is that there is no more passionate or creative group of educators committed to bringing the best learning programs to your child, than the Green School Bali team. Our team of educators and staff have brought together Green School Bali’s Distance Learning programme online in only a matter of weeks.

Our school is a dynamic place – always changing, growing, and learning. Our learning program has clear and solid foundations, with a focus on skills, knowledge and values and these three elements will continue. In this distance learning phase, we’ve adapted and will continue to bring all our learners, a uniquely Green School Bali education with energy, commitment and creativity.

I can’t wait until we are all back on campus together, but for now, we welcome you to Green School Bali Everywhere. With a gentle start and a growth mind-set, I invite you to dive in, as we navigate these unprecedented times – together.

Warmest wishes from beautiful Bali.

HEAD OF PEOPLE & COMMUNITY

Kate Druhan

We are in this together. This unprecedented situation has brought the best out in our community and we send our love and thanks to everyone.

Community members are supporting and caring for each other in the most remarkable ways. We may be apart, but we are very much together in spirit.

We have focused our energy and creative-selves to finding ways to live, learn and stay connected, as we weather this storm together. Our community holds the heart of the school and we want to nourish this, now more than ever. We have re-launched The Bridge, our co-learning and co-creating space, known as Green School For Grown-Ups, to support growth and connection for all community members. Offering engaging ways to live, learn and grow, in mind, body and spirit.  Creating events, continuing the connections and keeping the conversations going, as a community, is so central to who we are as a community.  When we provide the space, the grown-ups of Green School Bali step in and step up, to elevate our School and community.

Our parents have been outstanding in these uncertain circumstances. They are a force of positive energy. Special thanks for our GSPA (parents association), Class Ambassadors, parents as student mentors and everyone who is giving something of themselves to the school and each other during this time.

Love & Respect.

“When a child feels safe and supported, they can learn. When a child is seen as an individual,  they are nourished. When the learning is real, there is engagement. When a community is connected, we make an impact.”
