THREE-RIVERS | Pandemic forces, several schools in the Mauricie and Centre-du-Québec had to adapt to celebrate the end of classes and the beginning of summer holidays in the original way, on Tuesday.
“We could not have a special guests or make an exit from the end of the year. In my class, we made a virtual output, we went to Paris. We visited the Louvre museum and the Eiffel tower”, gave the example of Pascale Romano, teacher of 4th grade at school of the Bois-Joli to Trois-Rivières.
The day puts an end to a school year rich in events. The past six weeks have required a lot of adjustments and adaptation for the students and the staff.
Meetings have already taken place between the five centres of academic services of the Mauricie and Centre-du-Québec to address the various issues of the new school year in September. We are looking for solutions, among other things, for the return to the classroom secondary school students and transportation to school.
“You start to develop different scenarios for back-to-2020. We are in discussion with the public health and the ministry. It should increase the number of students per bus. At 23 students per school bus, one will not reach,” said Luc Galvani, director general, Center of services academic Chemin-du-Roy.
The rate of school attendance of Chemin-du-Roy has reached 51% in the month of June. Primary schools have been faced with outbreaks of coronavirus, but the spread has been slowed.
