You can use either a desktop computer, laptop, or tablet/phone to enter the video meeting. We will initially use the Zoom platform. We have performed some preliminary testing, and insha Allah hope this will be a helpful means to engage your child with QUL College, whilst not presenting any health risks.

Considering we don’t want your child to be looking at the screen for an extended period of time, we […]
