Dear Parents,

In the face of the world pandemic situation

We at Musaeus College took the Covid 19 and its accompanying situation in our stride. Though the government closed schools on 12th of March 2020, within days, we were able to stabilize the continuation of the students’ education without any interruptions.

We soon ensured that all our students were given the best possible guidance and support. It is important that you appreciate that though school premises are closed, we have implemented online teaching through the LMS and Microsoft Teams. The school has remained open during most of March and April as a learning school community.

The 2nd Term 2020 will begin on May 11th. The online teaching will continue until it is completely safe for our children to return to school. Students have adjusted to the new system of learning and we are now actively engaged with all the classes, from Grades 1 to 13. Even the children in the Nursery section are engaged in activities which are sent by their teachers on a weekly basis.

Together we can ensure that our students are not disadvantaged during this difficult time.

Please visit e-Learning for more information on how our students are progressing with the online teaching.

Best regards,
Nelum Senadira
Principal.

 


Dear former Grade 11 students, their parents and all the teachers who taught them.

Congratulations to all the students who sat the G.C.E. O/L examination in December 2019. You have made Musaeus College proud and we appreciate the hard work you put in throughout and wish you the best for the A/Ls and beyond.

I thank the parents for your support throughout and hope you will wisely guide your daughters towards their future.

Dear Parents,

Roll-Out Plan for e-Learning through Teams and LMS

Your daughter will be introduced to the e-Learning platform from Monday 20th April.

The Time Table will be sent to you by the class teachers tomorrow. Her teachers have been tirelessly preparing throughout without a break. Initially we will start the online teaching schedules for Grades 4 – 13 and the timings are as follows:

National Curriculum Section:
Primary Section (Grades 4 & 5) – 9.00 – 11.00 a.m.
Middle Section (Grades 6 – 11) – 9.00 – 12 noon
A/L Section (Grades 12 1st -13) Will be on a special timetable. Some have already started.

British Curriculum Section:
Grades 6 – 8: 9 a.m.– 12 noon
O/L 1st year – Mon, Tue & Wed 9.a.m. to 12 noon / Thu & Fri 9.00 a.m. – 1.30 p.m.
Accelerated Program & AS Commerce: 9.00 a.m. – 12. Noon
A/Ls 9.00 a.m. to 12 noon Except Thursday: 9.00 a.m. – 1.30 p.m.

You would have already received the Timetables by now. The links to the different classes/grades are given on the TT. Please study this simple structure and train your daughter to use it independently. The student will use the link given on the TT for the day, to enter the portal.

As with any program offered on an online basis, we do understand there would be limitations for a small percentage of the student population. We have tried our best to minimize the effects or to find alternatives.

For example:

  • The home computer is shared with the siblings as well as working parents. To overcome the timing issues, the teachers have been instructed to record their sessions and upload to the LMS and the student who missed the lesson or wants to go through it again, will have access at a convenient time.
  • Working parents may not be able to sit with the children and guide them. Help your daughter understand this is another classroom situation and give them an initial training on how to get connected through the links independently. Children love to work with computers and are good at handling technology. This will be an opportunity to use those skills productively.

Things to note:

  • From the start, both the MIKE and the VIDEO should be switched off. (To be used only at Q & A time)
  • Please explain the importance of taking turns to ask or answer questions.
  • If your daughter is unable to be present at the times given on the TT and will access the recordings later, please inform the class/subject teacher. She would then know why she is absent from the class.
  • Punctuality is important as the instructions are given at the beginning of the lessons.
  • See that she has had her breakfast and is ready to go through the lessons continuously.
  • Ask her to have everything she needs with her, before the lesson starts. (extra papers /books to take notes, text book, study packs if needed, pens, pencils, a snack and water etc.)
  • The first round of e-learning will be from April 20th to 30th. If needed, it will resume from May 11th.

Let us ensure that our students are not disadvantaged during this difficult time.

Thank you.
Best regards,

Dear Parents,

Going forward during this period of crisis (Grades 1 - 5)

It is indeed a difficult time for everyone and our focus is on keeping everyone safe while supporting students with their studies.

I know some teachers have already sent study material through WhatsApp. However, since we do have introduced the Learner Management System (LMS) to our teachers, we have decided to change our strategy. The LMS, once completed, will be an interactive platform for the students and teachers to work on.

After the initial hasty submission of study packs, we have, by now, streamlined the progression and have organized to send the weekly work schedule through the LMS. Musaeus College was in the process of finalizing the training for our teachers. Unfortunately, the training was not completed but we were able to complete the training of a team of Master Teachers who will at this time, assist the subject teachers in the use of the LMS. Because of this, please note that in some instances, we will not be able to give the students the full benefit of the LMS initially.

It is possible that some teachers may have already sent the uploaded material to you via WhatsApp. You could get your daughter to do some revision on such instances. I assure you such issues would be ironed out by next week.

I kindly request the parents to set up a time schedule and organize to spread the work from Monday to Friday. The study packs be based on a daily lesson plan.

What is the LMS and how can your daughter access it?

We are glad to inform you that the School Management has implemented the Learning Management System (LMS) to enhance the teaching- learning process. This LMS improves the learner engagement and supports the productivity of the users’ learning and the teaching process.

All study packs will be shared through the School LMS in the future.

Time line to sign in to the LMS

If all the students try to sign in at the same time, there will be a breakdown of the system. Therefore, it is extremely important for the different groups of Grades to sign in at the following times or do so after Wednesday, 25th.

Grade Date Time
5 Tuesday 24th After 8.00 a.m.
4 Tuesday 24th After 3.00 p.m.
3, 2 & 1 Wednesday 25th After 8.00 a.m.

Steps to Follow

The profiles of all the students have been created in the LMS. In order to access their profiles, please follow the simple steps and instructions given below.

  Step1. Type the following URL to log on to the LMS.
    http://school.guru.lk/mcc
     
  Step 2. Type your user name.
   

The format of the user name is admissionno@musaeus.edu.lk
E.g. if the child’s admission no is 12345, the username will be 12345@musaeus.edu.lk

The username will also be your school email address which you can use to contact the teacher and send your responses when needed.
     
  Step 3. Type your password.
   

Student@123 (the word Student should start with a capital S)

  Step 4. Click on "Sign in".

Problem solving

For any issue with login, send an email to help@musaeus.edu.lk OR  WhatsApp : 0764554592 (WhatsApp Massages only) with Student admission number. For more details go through the video link pasted here https://bit.ly/Headstart_LMS

Carrying on:

A few more messages regarding how to return the completed work and improvements of the LMS will be informed.

The LMS provider will soon be conducting an online training session for all the teachers and will introduce the system where the student can respond through the LMS itself.

Just like last year, 2020 has also started off as a highly disturbing year and we are trying to ensure our students are given the best possible guidance and support. It is important that you appreciate that though school premises are closed, we are trying our best to keep the school to remain open as a learning school community. Students should not be thinking this is an extended holiday.

Together we can ensure that our students are not disadvantaged during this difficult time.

Dear Parents,

Going forward during this period of crisis (Grades 6 – 13)

It is indeed a difficult time for everyone and our focus is on keeping everyone safe while supporting students with their studies. (There will be a separate message for the Primary Section – Grades 1-5)

I apologize for the initial confusion some Grades faced when they received either large volumes of content or unedited versions of study material. This may have been caused by the over-enthusiasm of some teachers who wanted to see that their students who were about to face their end of term tests would not miss the balance syllabus that was then not completed.

I have, since then, streamlined the progression and have organized to send the weekly work schedule through the Learner Management System (LMS) for which we were in the process of finalizing the training for our teachers. Unfortunately, the training was not completed but we were able to complete the training of a team of Master Teachers who will at this time, assist the subject teachers in the use of the LMS. Because of this, please note that in some instances, we will not be able to give the students the full benefit of the LMS initially. As some teachers are yet to grasp the Sinhala typing, some subjects will be uploaded later.

It is possible that some teachers may have already sent the uploaded material to you via WhatsApp. You could get your daughter to do some revision on such instances. I assure you such issues would be ironed out by next week.

I kindly request the parents to set up a time schedule and organize to spread the work from Monday to Friday.
