Dear Sir / Madam

In light of the existing situation, we, parents of Choifat Schools, appreciate the Institutions’ continuous support and back the decision of the school’s closure for the safety of its students. However, we feel that it is unjustified that the school is demanding a full fee payment for the Third Term’s 'Distance Learning Program' .

It is important to address that the Distance Learning program which Choifat is implementing is kind of self-learning specifically there is no connection between the students and their own class teacher, Choifat must improve their alternative way of teaching, additionally online learning platform is not a complete alternate, but rather a supplement to the Term Education. Parents have to put in more than 5-7 hours a day, assisting children to complete the daily assigned lessons, provide resources, stationary, technology, not to mention the added mental strain and pressure of working from home simultaneously.

In addition to this, the children are not attending school for the entire semester, neither using the premises, utilities, facilities nor all extra circular activities which are now closed for the entire semester thus reducing the school’s costs.

Over the course of last few weeks, we have seen businesses and companies suffer, families across the city taking the brunt of this situation. Most Businesses are struggling and commercial activity has now come to a complete halt. These are severely difficult times for all of us.

As prominent education providers in the Muscat, we expect Choifat to lead the way by example and therefore, we collectively appeal to Choifat for a minimum 50% Fees Reduction for the Third Term 'E-Learning Program'. For those parents that have already paid, we request their payments to be adjusted against the next upcoming semester

These are difficult times for all of us, and we hope our understanding school will play its part.

Your Co-operation shall be highly appreciated,

Parents of Choifat Schools in Muscat
