“The feedback from parents, guardians and governors were extremely positive. They also offered other schools all over the country and world advice and advised schools in the UK and Mombasa about how to use Google Classroom too as a way of online learning during lockdown.

“Now that the children have returned to school, they are reaping the benefits with fewer gaps in learning as they have been well prepared for the new year. KPJS are a well established Google For Education school and are continuing their upwards technology journey whilst helping other schools in Harrow.”

Mr Baumring, Head Teacher at the school said: “On Monday 21st September 2020, Year 5 had a creative day following their topic on space. The children all came dressed up in various astronomical costumes. Some of them looked absolutely magnificent and some of them, to be perfectly frank, a little bit scary.

“They had a great time doing various activities in class and really enjoyed the difference that a special day can make. Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances, we are unable to take the children on trips so activities have to be in school. Below are some lovely pictures of the children who dressed up for the occasion and some of their work. Well done year 5.”
