January 2021 - Learning together, even when apart

January 2021 - Learning together, even when apart

Saint Mary’s BNS has experienced a very successful transition to remote learning. This has been made possible by the hard work of all school staff, the resilience of our wonderful pupils and the support of their parents. We thank you all and encourage you to keep up the fantastic work. The last week in January celebrates Catholic Schools Week. The theme this year is ‘Communities of Faith and Resilience’. We are exploring the themes of, Faith, Learning, Love, Resilience and Hope. We reflect upon how Catholic schools are communities of faith and resilience.

Tips for Lockdown

  • Getting up at a regular time and keeping a regular sleep pattern - It’s important to get up at a regular time to both start your day and when you go back to school or work, you won’t be disorientated by a sudden change in your sleep routine.
  • Exercise - When you wake up and have your breakfast it’s important to get the exercise that you would normally get if you walk, scoot or cycle to school or work.
  • Learn something new - With all this time on our hands, it’s important to use it right, so that’s why it would be a good idea to learn something new so that when we are out of lockdown and somebody asks ‘ What did you do over lockdown?’ and you can proudly respond saying ‘ I’m fluent in Korean thanks to Duolingo, or ‘I learned how to play the piano thanks to simply piano.
  • Relax - If you’re stressed about school or work, it’s important to relax every once in a while, if that’s reading, going for a walk, playing Xbox or whatever you find relaxing.
