Online Learning at Highland Academy

March 24

As the government has issued to close down all publicly funded primary schools and high schools in response to COVID-19 prevention, Highland Academy of Canada has also started to engage students to participate in virtual learning via Google Meet.

Through Google Meet, students and the teacher are able to communicate face-to-face with web camera enabled. The app allows students to easily join pre-scheduled meetings from invitation email, and ask questions directly during the class if needed. 

Students are able to look at the subtitles that are automatically generated from the teacher's speech as a reference. They can also choose to videotape the video conference for future use. The teacher is allowed to do screen-share with students and assign homework or classwork through Google Classroom to check students' understanding of the concepts.

2020 Waterloo Math Contest

March 18

The CEMC develops and administers many internationally recognized contests to help to inspire the next generation of students to develop an interest in and love for mathematics and computer science.

 

Higland Academy of Canada has been ranked 38th for Team Honour during the 2020 Cayley Contest. Kaitlyn Wang and Harlan Zhou have also made it to the top 0.4% and achieved a very outstanding score of 138. Congradulations, Harlan and Kaitlyn!

New Public Health Recommendations on the 2019 Novel Coronavirus 

According to the update on the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) provided by the Public Health of Toronto, parents and students are adviced the following:

 

Risk to the Public is Still Low: 

The risk of getting this virus in Toronto continues to be low because the virus is not spreading in the general community. At this time, there are only two confirmed cases of this virus in Toronto. The Toronto residents who contracted this virus had a history of travel in Wuhan, China. Most cases occurring around the world got the virus from travel in the affected area, were in close contact, or live in the same household as known cases.

 

What Can You Do? 

Members of the public are advised to take the usual measures to reduce the risk of respiratory illness, including:

  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap is not available;

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze;

  • If you don't have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve or arm;

  • Get an annual flu vaccine, available from clinics and pharmacies; and

  • If you or your family members are sick, stay home.

 

Prevent the Spread of Misinformation: 

As this is an evolving situation, we continue to remind people of the importance of using credible sources to stay informed, and encourage others to do the same.  For more information, please visit toronto.ca/coronavirus. 

 

Questions? 

Call Toronto Public Health at 416-338-7600, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on weekends from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Translation is available in many languages.
