Building An Online Community

Our student leadership team is looking at ways to help us build an online community of students while our school is temporarily closed to most boys. This page has been co-created by Nihar, Henry and Ms Taylor.

As a student leadership team, we have prided ourselves on creating a strong school community and reaching out to our local charities. Under new challenges of lockdown we have had to begin thinking creatively about how we can foster an inclusive and engaging online community.

We realise that our circumstances have changed the way we interact with our peers and flexibility is needed. However, we refuse to allow this to prevent us from building long-lasting friendships or let our mental wellbeing take a hit.

Therefore, as a team we are looking at how we can increase pupil engagement so that students feel a part of the school and feel as though they matter on an individual basis.

We have been tackling this from multiple angles. Firstly, teachers at Harris Dulwich Boys have thought of innovative ways to engage learners online, through using videos, interviews and whole class quizzes.

As an Academy we have engaged students in lessons that include whole-school digital assemblies as well as including reward systems that acknowledge the individual in their achievements and contributions through newsletters. During lessons teachers are providing individual and bespoke feedback on work completed online.

Online clubs

Secondly, as a student leadership we want to take this further and build a platform for clubs that students can join and attend before, during and after school.

Students will be able to interact with peers not only in their classes about work, but can engage with everyone who shares a similar interest. Ultimately, this will encourage the development of opinions and individual character.

Thirdly, we want to hear from you. Over the last couple of week we have sent surveys to students and parents asking how you are all doing, what do you need and how we can help. Therefore, over the next coming weeks we will be acting on your comments on how best to serve your interests. If you have anything else you would like to share please contact Ms Taylor at .

We know these are tough times, but the student leadership team want you to know that we are here to listen to you and help in any way. And the tough times won’t last forever.
