Making SLGS COVID-19 Protected
Please donate today and help us in the fight against Covid-19. Your contribution
is saving lives and enabling ongoing schooling for hundreds of pupils.
Here’s how, with your vital support, we are trying to protect Sierra Leone’s future,
our pupils from the devastating Covid-19 pandemic.
We launched our virtual classrooms just 7 days after Government lockdown
announcements. Students alternate between two-day online curriculum and three days of socially distanced classes in the School.
The legacy of your support doesn’t end with SLGS. To reduce the impact on students across the country, we have invited other schools across Sierra Leone to share the content of our digital classrooms lessons. All our classes can be
accessed at any time via our dedicated YouTube page.
We have been able to implement high standards of Covid-19 prevention for
everyone at SLGS. We don’t see the ‘virtual classroom’ as just a means to combat a pandemic. We hope this ongoing initiative will inspire more institutions across the country to share their learning online, allowing as many pupils as possible in Sierra Leone to benefit from shared educational resources.
The technology you help fund will leave a lasting legacy throughout the country, raising the standard of education in Sierra Leone as a whole.
Your continued support can maintain this level of protection. Please donate today.
The work to enhance the School ’s COVID measures continue.
Covid-19: Taking education online
“Innovation simply means creativity, and every moment of the day, we think creatively for our pupils and our staff.” – Principal Rev. Canon Leonard Ken Davies, School Principal
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge global impact on schooling. With every continent on lockdown, educators have had to take learning away from the classroom.
Across Africa and the world, schooling went digital. Lessons went online, rapidly utilising video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams like never before.
To safeguard the education of our SLGS students, we needed to act quickly and decisively. And this is where the world-standard learning you made possible has made a difference.
Your investment in our ICT infrastructure means both our teaching staff and students are equipped to combat the current crisis.
No longer dependent on lessons instructed over the radio, we launched our virtual classrooms just 7 days after Government lockdown announcements. And the legacy of your investment doesn’t end with SLGS. To reduce the impact on students across the country, we have invited other schools across Sierra Leone to share the content of our digital classrooms lessons. All our classes can be accessed at any time via YouTube channel.

Covid-19: our in-school measures
“Wear a mask at all times: it is now part of your uniform” – Principal Rev. Canon Leonard Ken Davies, School Principal
Our students have now returned to physical classes, and like schools across the globe, getting this right for our pupils was vital. To ensure social distancing standards are met, we are blending a two-day online curriculum with three days of reduced capacity classes in the School itself.
We have introduced mandatory temperature testing for all pupils and staff and increased hygiene controls, such as additional hand washing stations across the School. Both staff and pupils have received free face masks.
With these steps in place, the chances of school-based transmission are significantly reduced. It is only through your support that we have been able to implement the highest standard of Covid-19 prevention measures for everyone at SLGS.
Free face masks, additional hand washing facilities and increased hygiene controls are in place across the School.
Our classroom layouts strictly follow social distancing guidelines from the Ministry of Education.
