As all the suitcases roll down the stairs and out the front door, and as Prep empties itself of happy little feet, the classrooms grow emptier and emptier. We were able to have a few classes today. The Grade 6s and 7s had their CPR workshop. What was left of the 5s and 4s were kept busy with regular classes. The Junior Preppies continued with very few in the classroom. But as of 13h00 today, Prep will be empty of pupils.
The staff, however, will have their shoulders to the wheel, producing online lessons for the next two weeks and lesson packs for each pupil in the younger grades – all the way from Grade 000 to 7. These packs include lesson `maps’ and detailed instructions for parents. This will be backed up by emails, online clips, Whatsapp group instruction and even music tuition via podcast or skype.
The Covid-19 virus has certainly taught us all to think and work differently!
