COVID-19 Updates

I hope that you are all keeping well, exercising and staying positive despite the changes and restrictions that we face.

What a challenging time we are experiencing.

We will NOT be able to volunteer in schools this term.  There are new decisions every day about when the students will return – but hopefully they will be back in classrooms, perhaps on a part time basis, in the next few weeks.

I am a fan and user of technology but like you, I have a realistic understanding of what remote learning means for many children. The children that we work with need support, guidance and encouragement from the guide on the side.  We won’t be able to do that for quite some time.

I am hoping that in the Spring we will be able to pick up where we left off.

Your good health and well being is a priority so I would not want you going back into schools in the winter. I hope that you have all had flu shots and that you are getting some Vitamin D from being in the sun each day.

My husband and I started Nordic walking last year and we enjoy a walk in the sunshine on most days. It is a great way to exercise and we see adults, children and dogs, all out for a walk and that brings a smile to our faces.

I hope that you have found ways to inject some happy times into your day.

Best wishes to all of you,

Keep safe, keep well. Stay in touch.
