Good Afternoon to you all,
Hope you are all safe and well since we finished school. We are in unprecedented times and facing uncertainty as the Coronavirus pandemic evolves.
Working from home presents new challenges but you have the resources and the resilience to meet these challenges. Log on to Office 365 every day as your teachers are more than willing to help you in every way possible.
Get into a routine if you are not in it already because having a structure to your day is extremely important. Commit to a number of hours study each day. Follow your school timetable to keep you focused. Incorporate homework/revision and exam papers into your study plan.
Get up early in the morning, have a good breakfast and begin as soon as you can as your mind is fresh and alert. Study on your own in a room with no distractions. Make sure you have a study desk and hard back chair. Turn off your phone. Shower and maintain goodhygiene-you will feel better.
A sample day might look like this-
• Rise at 8 /have a shower /breakfast /do 10 mins yoga(download free apps)
Get 8 hours sleep every night.
Keep in touch with your friends as ye are all in this together. Please don’t spend excessive time on social media.
Finally I know how capable and resilient you all are and have no doubt that you will rise to the challenge that you are presented with. This situation is the new normal. You need to pace yourselves as we do not know what the future holds. In the meantime, mind yourselves and mind your families. Let us not forget to hold on tight to beautiful hope for all of the brighter days that will come once this storm passes. Stay calm and we will get through this together.
