September 2020. After six months without any children on our school site, we finally returned.
We dedicated the summer to ensuring we could comply with all the health regulations; separate desks in classrooms, extra picnic tables to ensure social distancing at lunch time, new hand-washing facilties, and we welcomed our new full-time school nurse.
In a short time, our teachers and pupils have adapted to the novelties of mask wearing, social distancing or working and playing in separated “bubble groups”. These just form part of the daily routine while we focus on the real reasons for us being together at school, to educate and to be educated.
