The 'New Norm' @ PES

It's week 6 of Term 2 but it feels just like the start of a brand new term. In a sense, it is. We are in our 4th day back to school after being in lockdown and away from school for 7 whole weeks!

Our return to school has brought about a new norm. Changes that are necessary in order to make school a safe place for us to learn as well as talk to our friends. Some of the changes are shown in our video below. We must ensure physical distancing as much as possible. In team 5, we've used the phrase 'Teu le vā' which mean to look after the space between you and others. This means not just the physical space between you but also the relationship you have with others. Another new norm is ensuring we sanitise our hands anytime we enter and leave a building. This ensures we are not carrying germs from one place to another. Our teachers also have a big job of spray and wiping our desks and chairs at the end of every day.

We really enjoy getting out at morning tea and lunch to play non contact games using the sports equipment that Ms Vaafusuaga cleans after each session. Such a big but necessary job.

So those are the new norms for us. What's some changes your school has made? We hope to hear some feedback from our neighbouring schools.

We are so happy and blessed to be back in school!
