Arriving at school this morning, I did not have a clue the kind of day I was walking into. What I noticed was the scanty number of students on the playground. It dawned on me that many of our families had chosen to keep the children at home. Students had been kept at home in anticipation of a school closure, due to the circumstances.
We took the opportunity to make the most of our time at school together. Practicing our online learning once more and testing the resources. This also allowed us to come up with agreements and to support each other .
‘If school were to close we would be able to work at home independently.’
There were many pluses as students had a device to themselves, aiding the effectiveness of our Zoom trial. The day ended with confident students who were reassured of what would happen if the school closure were to occur.
