Head of Hygiene’s Mission

A new role created for a set of circumstances that are new to everyone.

New Role of Head of Health & Hygiene  

We’re delighted to announce that we have promoted one of our most detail-orientated and Science-loving teachers, Paula Perry, to being Skyrock’s Head of Health and Hygiene. This is until the COVID-19 virus passes entirely and quite possibly beyond as the way the world responds to these matters changes forever.

Paula, mother to her 13-year old daughter whom she has raised here in Taipei, has a background in Scientific research and preschool education. Paula did her PHD in Plant Science, before going to complete research in the field of root development in the Institute of Plant and Microbial Biology, Academia Sinica. Paula then went on to teach in Happy Marian, where she helped developed the curriculum for the kindergarten, before joining Skyrock as our specialist preschool teacher and curriculum developer.  

As someone who understands the consequences of not taking cleanliness and hygiene seriously, someone who has empathy with parents, and a Biology enthusiast that can’t help but refresh the page on the CDC’s response to COVID-19's latest developments, Paula is the perfect fit for this position of responsibility.

Skyrock’s management, teachers, and community managers trust Paula to be the watchful eye over our health and hygiene. We all support her in her mission to act proactively to prevent any sickness from transmission and react quickly to mitigate any incidents that might occur. This means that we will feedback on all of her policy suggestions and receive training on how to follow them with accuracy. Additionally, we will report to her daily and weekly with data on ourselves as teachers and on our students - all of which she will anonymize and protect in order to ensure that everyone’s right to privacy is respected.  

For more information on what our Head of Health and Hygiene will be doing to prevent the transmission of sickness during our classes and camps, please view our checklist below.
