Hornbill Primary School, an MOD School in Brunei, has been adapting to new ways of working as the island has recently gone into lockdown due to the pandemic.

Brunei remained COVID-free for most of last year and the school is now finding new ways to support families and children who are remote learning.

As the school is home to a library of more than 42,000 books, the teachers decided to bring back the mobile library concept, bringing books to pupils’ doorsteps.

The mobile library also allows class teachers to have a quick, socially distanced chat with pupils to check on their well-being. As a result, 84% of pupils have had access to books each week.

Members of the leadership team staff the mobile library so that parents are able to discuss home learning concerns or questions which are then followed up back at the school.
