Learning From Home During Lockdown

The usual day-to-day teaching and learning in St. Brigid’s came to a sudden stop on Thursday 12th March when schools were instructed by the Government to close in order to try and minimise the devastating impact Covid-19 would have on our country. Unfortunately we have been in this situation since then. We have had to adapt how we teach and how children learn and we now have a system up and running which we think is helping children to stay motivated and engaged in learning activities even while they are out of school. We are very grateful to all the parents/guardians, grandparents and families for being so cooperative, helpful and engaged throughout this unusual time. We are also very proud of each and every child in our school. Despite missing their teachers and friends terribly, the children have all been working hard at home. We thought it was very important to acknowledge the dedication of our children and parents so we have been compiling photos of children ‘working from home’. We have been amazed at the wonderful learning opportunities that children are engaging in at home under the superb guidance of their parents, grandparents and siblings. You can have a look at all the photos here. We can’t wait to see you all back in school but until then, stay safe and take care of yourselves and your families.
