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.
