After 2 years of silent hallways and empty classrooms, it was a delight today to welcome all of our students back to the school. The extensive preparation and planning put into making school re-entry safe and welcoming is a testament to the care and commitment of our school administration. Our aim for the first day back was to normalise the school day, have students reacclimatise to the building, and reengage positive connections with other students and staff, all of which are essential for successful learning and growth moving forwards. This seems to have been a success, despite the masks, cohorts, hand-washing, directional flow in hallways and physical distancing. It really was quite wonderful to see shining eyes peeking over the tops of masks, as students arrived ready for the new school year today.
The School administration headed by our Principal extend our heartfelt thanks to all parents and guardians for helping to prepare your children for the first day of school after such a long hault, as this had a huge impact on helping to make today successful.
The school administrations is making sure that the school environment is clean and sanitised and that all the safety protocols are enforced everywhere including the school buses, Classrooms and hostels so that nothing is left undone.
There is no doubt that we still have the various precautionary measures to become familiar with, but we are confident in being able to start the school year positively. At times there may be some communication challenges with masks, regulation challenges with physical distancing, and working memory challenges with directional flows. Still, we know that we have things in place to be successful with school re-entry. Together, as Lamdonites, we will make the school a safe and healthy place for students to thrive. We want students to feel safe and cared for, and we want parents and families to feel the same.
We are all extremely happy to welcome back our faculty members and students. It was lovely seeing everyone face to face once again.
