By following mandatory masking practices and social distancing in cohorts, our BG2 to Grade 12 students are excited to return to school campuses this week, while some of the students join their classmates through online learning.
We are proud to accomplish this hybrid learning model using Microsoft Teams and the new Swivl robot live stream technology.
For COVID-19 precautions, no visitors (including #BVGAlumni) are permitted into the school buildings until further notice.
Please check out the COVID-19 section on our school website for more information about our school reopening plans and updates.
