Have You Heard?

Posted: 23rd February 21

Lockdown is coming to an End!  The Government’s road map last night gave us some light at the end of the tunnel.  Tentative steps true but having the pupils back on the 8th March will be welcomed by all.   A school is not a school without the children.  The squeels, the laughter, the smiley faces (and that’s just the staff!) will be like a breath of fresh air.  Now the hard work begins in getting everything in place for their return.  Exciting and daunting all rolled into one.

Whilst the news has been welcome, on reflection these times have taught us so much about how adults and children can adapt, how reslient we can be and inventive.  Lessons have been delivered through screens and on the whole it has been successful, of course there have been setbacks and frustrations but overall Stormont has risen to the challenge and delivered on all fronts.   Let’s look forward to the future with hope and determination to make the remainder of the school year one to celebrate.


Lockdown in February

Posted: 2nd February 21

As we start another week of lockdown and the start of February our live teaching continues for all the girls across the school.  It is still a full day for everyone.  There are opportunities to have a chat with the Head, Miss Martin, Miss Sobell, the Deputy Head or Mrs Curley, Head of Pre-Prep to share their thoughts and ideas if the girls wish.  P.E., music and art still feature heavily on the timetable with no reduction and have from the very beginning of on line learning.

The girls are producing some amazing work and have been resilient in their learning.    Our teaching staff are bringing learning to life and inspiring them to adapt.  Although it is a challenging time for everyone, we should also look at the skills we are all gaining and celebrate how humans can change the way they live and learn.  We know this extraordinary time will come to an end, we have to maintain that thought.  Vaccines are proving effective, the NHS is being protected, infection rates are starting to fall.  There is still much to be thankful for #stayhomestaysafe
