As we navigate this second period of learning in lockdown, we ought to take a moment to reflect on these unprecedented times. In years to come, we’ll remember 2020 as the year that the whole world stayed at home.
I believe that across society we are more resourceful, flexible and resilient than we were back in January. Education, certainly, has had to move quickly to create new ways to learn outside the classroom.
The move to online learning took an enormous collaborative effort, and demonstrated how quickly we can shift and change when we work together to find and refine solutions to difficult problems.
Starting as Woodleigh Principal during a pandemic has not been ideal. However, I have been amazed by the level of community support that exists at Woodleigh. The level of passion, creativity and dedication shown by my colleagues has been a constant driver. I am incredibly grateful to be leading a staff who have worked so tirelessly throughout the pandemic to relearn every aspect of their roles and move into a new working environment with such a positive outlook. Watching our students come to School or Zooming into their classes each day with smiles on their faces and a strong sense of purpose has been a joy.
The shared sense of care and contribution extends across our community. Throughout lockdown, our parents and families have made enormous efforts to support their children’s learning. It is this shared sense of purpose and respect for others which leaves me with the understanding that we can continue to move forward, confident that we can tackle whatever challenge lies ahead.
