Today is the first day of semester 2 in the school year. After the covid-ridden crash and burn of semester 1, I’m really hoping this is will be a better semester.
The mid-year holiday (2 weeks) is a nice break because the Barbarians have no school work to do over these holidays (the term holidays have school work). As it is mid-winter (short, cold days) we didn’t do much, but the Barbarians had a nice break all the same.
The boys are going back with normal timetables, and many less restrictions at school. Parent-teacher interviews will be allowed, excursions, inter-school sport, assemblies and performances can all be restarted within current covid restrictions.
With normal schooling, life does feel a lot more like normal. I hope it stays that way.
Is life feeling any more “normal” for you?
