WCM embraces ‘New Normal’

by: Ma. Daryl Sabareza // 06/2020

As early as January, while COVID-19 was rapidly spreading across the world, Wesleyan College of Manila immediately implemented safety precautions such as wearing mask inside the school premises, checking body temperature, and spraying alcohol on hands upon entering. Everyone was constantly advised to wash their hands and reminded of the symptoms and safety precautions to prevent the virus from spreading.

WCM is continuously helping COVID-19 frontliners such as the doctors and staff of University of Santo Tomas Hospital, De La Salle University, and Adventist Medical Center in the form of masks and other toiletries. The school continues to reach out to the communities of Barangay 719, 33 and 34.

Due to the pandemic, schools have been closed, and as the school year 2020-2021 opens, WCM will continue to provide classes with its New Normal of Learning. Hence, there are three modes of learning

Option A: Purely Offline or for students who do not have computer or no Internet access.

Option B: Mixed, for students who have computers or other gadgets but no Internet access. Modules and other resource material are provided in digitized copies.

Option C: Purely Online, for students with computers or other gadgets and stable Internet access. Modules and other resource material are provided online.

Class meetings are done in virtual classes via Google Meet. Actual books will be provided for all options, and classes will open on August 24, 2020.
