Jakob, an AISG Grade 6 student, gave an interview to News GD on his return to the Middle School at the Science Park campus on May 11. Jakob is from the US and has lived in Guangzhou for four years.
Since February 4, Jakob has been receiving his education through AISG's online learning. Now back in the classroom, he talks about the safety procedures in place, what it's like to see his friends, how everyone practices social distancing, and how he feels being back at school.
Watch Jakob talk about his return to AISG
AISG had closed both campuses for the Lunar New Year holiday on January 16 with plans to come back from the holiday on February 3. Due to the outbreak, schools across China were closed to prevent the spread. AISG welcomed back Grades 8 and 12 on April 27, Grades 6, 7, 9, 10 and 11 on May 11, with Grades 4 and 5 attending the Er Sha Campus today.
We are very excited to see the safety measures working for the students and essential faculty and especially happy to see our students again!
