Teachers, amidst all the chaos of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are aware that you all are embarking on a new challenge, doing what you do in a classroom to delivering this online.

WE thought it might be helpful to share ideas, good experiences, bad experiences and just how you are generally feeling in what is an anxious time.

We are creating an event via our Facebook page so look out for that but in the meantime you can comment on this blogpost and your fellow teachers can see your comments and can respond! 

We hope you can encourage each other and that you prioritise keeping safe, keeping others safe, keeping calm, relaxed and letting it all unfold. Health first everyone.
