Sustainability

Hybrid learning extends educational resources to people who may not otherwise have access to the A Levels programme. This, combined with added elements of sustainability and reduced costs, ensures that online learning will continue to grow.

On average, due to daily commutes to an academic institute, a student’s vehicle emits close to one tonne of carbon emissions per year thus adding to global environmental challenges. As the hybrid model focuses mostly on online learning, these carbon emissions are significantly reduced.

Environmental Benefits of Online Learning

According to Bloomberg, nearly 60% of students travel by car to school. This daily commute results in high levels of pollution and emissions, causing respiratory and health issues. Studies show that virtual learning can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 148 pounds each semester!

Online learning reduces the energy consumption to power large school buildings. Schools use a lot of electricity for technology, lighting, and heating/cooling systems. Typical higher-education buildings consume about $100,000 worth of energy per year.

Perhaps the biggest environmental benefit of online learning is the decrease in paper waste. A typical school uses about 2,000 sheets of paper per day, which is about one tree per week! Online learning primarily relies on digital documents. As a result, less paper is used, and more trees are saved.

Schools also require a lot of water. According to the Environmental Policy Agency, USA, the largest uses of water in educational facilities are restrooms, landscaping, heating/cooling, and cafeteria kitchens. During remote learning, the use of water is significantly reduced.

Reducing plastic waste is a significant benefit of online learning. A lot of plastic waste is generated from school cafeterias during lunch breaks. Oklahoma State University reports that one school-aged student who uses disposable lunch products creates 67 pounds of waste during a nine-month school year.

It is estimated that schools waste thousands of tonnes of food per year. 

Reduction of Environmental Impact per 1000 students

Scholarships

Homebridge offers both need-based and merit scholarships for students.

Need-based scholarships are awarded as per requirement of financial assistance. They are eligible for each year of enrolment. By contrast, scholarships based on merit are granted to students who illustrate academic or athletic achievement, along with a range of other talents and criteria.

CSR

Homebridge is a strong advocate of social responsibility and is committed to providing assistance through its community initiatives on education. We aim to fund charitable learning locally. It is our purpose to create an educated Pakistan through our CSR programme thereby offering scholarships to students with financial constraints.

The scholarship entails tuition fee waiver (which is approximately 90% of the total cost of the programme). It does not cover the CAIE examination charges, laboratory fees, books, library and extra-curricular activity charges.

Homebridge signs MoU with Sanjan Nagar Public Trust Education

Homebridge by Beaconhouse has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Sanjan Nagar Public Education Trust (SNPET), to offer scholarships to Sanjan Nagar students over a period of 5 academic years. Sanjan Nagar is a not-for-profit school setup that intends to expand its holistic education system, while also seeking philanthropic efforts from donors for its underprivileged students to build a better future for the nation.

Under this partnership, Homebridge will offer merit-based financial assistance to five students registered under SNPET, to cover their admission fee, tuition fee, laboratory charges, LMS (Learning Management System) enrollment, textbooks, and other fees required for various extra-curricular activities. Homebridge will also provide necessary devices, including a laptop or a tablet, along with internet connectivity for each student, as required for academic progress in the Hybrid A Level programme. Employing a hybrid teaching method for the CAIE A Levels, the concept focuses on a blend of online and on-campus access, building bridges across socio-economic segments, cultural nuances, and physical distances.

Farzana Kausar, School Head Sanjan Nagar School stated, “We at Sanjan Nagar Public Education Trust Higher Secondary School (SNPET-HSS) appreciate Homebridge for this great initiative in making unequal access to education, equal. We are very excited that SNPET-HSS students will become part of the first batch of this programme and wish the very best to the Homebridge team and our students for their collaborative success.”

Beaconhouse being an entity providing educational services to a large and diverse group of individuals of varying ages, socio-economic backgrounds and nationalities over 4 decades, has always aimed to bring educational excellence to the masses in Pakistan. There are currently more than 315,000 enrolled across various campuses of Beaconhouse School System in Pakistan.
