St. Dominic's International School, Portugal


Hello, I would like to return to School tomorrow if possible. Given my academic publications are an asset even for parents, and that my students were used to my teaching and even general well-being guidance, I feel bad for having left them in the middle of the year. I am happy to post publicly only in the School page. I think my students will be missing me by now. I regret having subjected everyone to personal information about myself and I apologise, but I was a bit desperate trying to solve an international family dispute. I'm happy to go back to my classes even tomorrow, I can do a revision lesson first with all my classes, but for that I need to have access to the School online platform, all the information, etc so I would have to be reappointed, which I hope can happen. I've been doing other things because like everyone else I cannot afford to live without an income, so I didn't wait one day even before I started to consider alternative paths, that's why I left so much information about myself in public, also trying to counter unfair claims I had suffered outside School that needed to be addressed. If I am allowed to return, I am happy to restrict my public contributions to topics approved by the School, apart from academic contributions that will be peer reviewed, which are most of them too advanced for my students to consider reading and which can be seen as an asset for the School. Thank you.
I hope all students and parents stay healthy and calm and that everyone takes the chance to spend fruitful time learning from home. I look forward to seeing the school crowded again as soon as that is safe for us all, hopefully within the next few weeks. In the interim, please: (1) ensure that your child/children attend their usual lesson times, virtually (online) (2) support them in their learning as you can (3) encourage them to read offline as well as online that the routine for the next few weeks is implemented smoothly. You can trust that we teaching team are working even harder than usual and I am impressed with the attitude to learning my keen students showed today. I hope my Portuguese students enjoyed analysing (and doing research on) Miguel Torga’s poetry and that my English B students enjoyed the virtual visit to the Courtauld Institute in London and this piece of music: And I hope that they now know how to structure an essay. They now have a question to answer and they do owe me an essay for next lesson! :)

[03/19/20]   Message from the Principal

We have always believed that on-line teaching and learning was going to play a wider role in education – but we never expected that the experience would land so quickly on our doorstep.

In line with many schools, we have implemented our programmes across the School from Nursery to Grade 12. There were a few hiccups on the first day, but teachers, parents and students are now getting familiar with this different way of teaching – and it’s working well, to judge by the messages we have received from parents. At the personal level, I have been immensely impressed by both the creativity of teachers and the enthusiasm and engagement of the students.

So the future of education really is now!
