CTI Online: Christian Teaching Institute








Letter from the Principal

October 2020

Dear parents, teachers and students,

We embark on another school year, with a lot of uncertainties ahead. This is the year that starts with the triple threats of the Covid-19 pandemic, the economic problems facing the Lebanese and the aftermath of the horrendous explosion in August. Educating in a climate like this becomes a challenge.

At CTI, we have devised several plans, of which three major ones stand out: Teaching purely online, teaching in a hybrid program involving partial school presence and online work at home, or even eventually teaching face to face as in any previous school year. I am sure that we will be applying the different possibilities off and on, as the situation calls for. New this year at CTI is an IT platform that we have secured the rights to use. As the school year progresses, its use has proved invaluable, despite the vagaries of the internet connections.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Sign of the times

Our concern is the education and well-being of our students. The teachers, students and parents are working hand in hand to implement distance learning, or to brave corona virus threats when sending students to school. We are happy to say that students are getting optimal education in either case. We hope that soon the CTI family will get back to actual presence, outings, joint activities and group fun.

We count our blessings. The Lord has brought us thus far. We thank God for His immense goodness, and look forward to a great year, albeit of a different nature than the ordinary.


The principal
