Our return to school after the Sports Break felt a bit unusual because all of our Year 7s were on distance learning for the week. We were following the official guidelines and recommendations given to us to help reduce the spread of Covid. I was very impressed by how the staff and students adapted to this new way of teaching and learning. None of this would have been possible without the hard work and support of our IT rep - Mrs Östling. The day before Sports Break, Mrs Östling made sure that all the Year 7 Chrome Books were correctly set up for the Year 7s to take home with them and use during distance learning.
We are really looking forward to the return of our Year 7s in week 12. It will also be good to receive their feedback about how their experiences of distance learning went. It would be nice to think that week 11 was a unique situation but, the reality is that we will need to be prepared to repeat the process in the future. We obviously want to learn from students, parents and carers and our staff's experiences and so please do share any ideas or suggestions with mentors or me.
