The first of December was like an early Christmas present for the Gr5s. It was the day they finally returned to school as a whole grade. They were so excited to see friends they haven’t seen since lockdown bamboozled all of us.

The noise of happy children was evident in the passage as their excited voices carried out of the classrooms. Not only has this year brought so many “new” normals their way, they now have to sit with dividers between them and chairs facing the wrong direction, and true to form, not even this new, new could dampen their mood.

We will make the best of the last few and precious days as a class. Never ever forgetting this weird and wonderful year. We as teachers could not be more proud of each and every one of our children.
