School Students Suffer from Heavy Workload

Published

Kids

In light of what has been going on around the world and Egypt specifically, the Coronavirus has caused so much mayhem and conflicts on a large scale. Ever since the beginning of the pandemic, government officials have instated that people should stay at home in order to “Break the Chain”.

They started out by giving schools and employees 2 weeks to stay at home and quarantine in hopes of matters simmering down a little and the virus maybe diminishing altogether. At first, this was great news to all the people who were forced to wake up and get out of bed on a daily basis.

The only conflict of such a decision was having to proceed working as well as studying from home, especially since the quarantine had been elongated and that a curfew was imposed right after.

School students for instance were asked to download an application called “Zoom” to resume classes online and proceed with their learning curriculum. At first, it was proven difficult for the teachers let alone the students to maneuver and use the application, but with time and trial and error, people were learning to adjust to the circumstances, especially since their grades are depending on that.

On the other hand, once teachers got the hang of using Zoom, they showed no mercy. After asking several parents that have kids around the age of 10 and above in grades like 4 of 5, they had claimed that their children are going through a lot at this current time.

We were told that their children get to bed at around 5AM in the morning. What? At other times, if they were lucky, the earliest they’d get to bed on a school night (Zoom online classes) was 2AM in the morning.

Parents have been complaining from the amount of work load given to the kids who are of young age, especially those who go to schools that teach difficult subject and curriculums such as German, French, and so on so forth. The teachers are showing no mercy at giving their students sheets and sheets of homeworks and lessons that they need to learn and work on in such little time.

We understand that in light of the COVID-19 circumstances, we have lost so much educational time trying to figure out how to handle the situation but the kids are finding it super difficult to keep up. I mean, what school student is forced to stay up till 5AM in the morning trying to finish their work? Only college students are forced to do so because they have a larger heavier load of work, but at the end of the day, these are just kids and we need to take it a bit easy on them.

Schools are upon us and this time of the year has always made us feel a bit down because as we welcome back school, we say our goodbyes to the last summer days.

This year it’s even scarier, parents are getting ready to welcome schools with a heavy heart as they send their kids to school during the pandemic.

We know that your kids’ safety comes first, and that you would always go the extra mile to protect them and keep them safe and sound. It may sound scary but we’re here to comfort you with some tips to follow, which will help you shield them from any harm. 

Hand Hygiene & The Use of Sanitizers

Teach your kids about the importance of washing their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds. Teachers should also be the ones to lead, and kids should follow their lead. Sanitizers should be their new tag along for when water isn’t available, make sure it contains at least 70% alcohol. 

On-the-Go Sanitation 

If your kid has to take the bus, then wipes should be their new best friend. Ask them to use these wipes in disinfecting surfaces such as door knobs and sink handles and cleaning their hands.

If You Care, Don’t Share

We have always encouraged kids to share their stuff with their friends, but now the time has come to tell them that sharing is no longer caring! Teach your kids that they should no longer hand out their stuff to anyone and that they should keep their belongings to themselves.

Label their supplies and items with their names on them, so that they don’t get mixed up with others’.

If your kid is sick, even if it’s a small cough, don’t send them to school. The time has also come for you to accept their excuses and listen to them if they complain of anything. Remember, it’s not only your kid’s life at stake, but hundreds others.

If your child suffers from a disease that makes them more prone to the virus and at a higher risk, consider professional home schooling and keep them safe at home. 

We know how scared we all are but remember, your fatherly/motherly instinct will shield your kids’ from harms’ ways.

Get to Know Rogena Beyond Her Role as Fadwa

Published

By

We sat with the beautiful Rogena, or shall we say, Fadwa? And had a delightful talk with her regarding her role in El Brens and got to know her better!

Don’t worry, we maintained social distance and followed the precautionary measures.

There’s no doubt that Rogena aka Fadwa has created a huge buzz around her character this Ramadan in the series ‘El Brens.’
She killed it and definitely gave a performance that we all admired. But before we get into her role this Ramadan, let’s get to know the real Rogena first!

First thing Rogena does in the morning is sit in the garden and prune her flowers! She calls that her daily ritual which she shares with her Instagram family.

Her favorite meal is basically anything with Bachamel in it and we couldn’t agree more! Who doesn’t love some creamy pastas?

We asked her about the first thing she would do after this quarantine is over and she said that thankfully, nothing much have changed for her.
“I’m coping really well with everything happening and I’m not upset, thank god.” She said.

“The one thing I can do is maybe travel.” She added.

We then asked about the destination she wishes to go to.

‘Lebanon.’ She said!

Explaining that she has yet an undone series she needs to shoot, and we can’t wait to hear more deets about it!

In her spare time, Rogena likes to read, prepare for a character, watch TV and talk to her besties! Gossips, maybe?

Her favorite actress is Soad Hosny, and her favorite actor is Al Pacino and her favorite movie is ‘Lost Love’ ‘الحب الصائع’ which comes as no surprise, as it’s one of Soad Hosny’s beautiful classics.

You would be surprised to know that Rogena has a daredevil side in her! She’s a risk taker and when asked about the most dangerous thing she has ever done, she said ‘jumping off a plane.!”

So yep, apparently in her spare time, she reads, she trains and casually parachute!
If Rogena weren’t an actress, she would have dedicated all of her time to her home and would have become a full time housewife and mother.

But we are glad to see her excelling in both!

Commenting on her killer role as Fadwa, Rogina said ‘I never expected this huge success for Fadwa but I had faith in god and that hard work pays off.”
She also admitted that Fadwa is the hardest character she has ever played.

It definitely was a hard character but no one would have played just as well! From one success to another, we salute Rogina for being the great actress that she is.
Till next time and next interview, we hope you enjoyed this one just like we did!
