Welcome to the penultimate week of Term 2 2020.
By my calculation, not that I was fortunate enough to learn maths at Amesbury, this is the longest term in the history of the school, a total of 12 weeks. Teaching and learning looks completely different now than it did at the beginning of the term.
Obviously, major credit goes to Urs and her dedicated band of teachers who, in a very short period of time, developed a way of teaching offsite and have altered this throughout the term as the Covid-19 levels changed. However, credit is also due to all the parents & caregivers who were the key link between teachers and students for a significant amount of time. But let's also not forget all of the Amesbury kids who adapted so well to the turmoil that was thrust upon them all of a sudden.
I'd also like to make a special mention of those children who turned 5 and started their schooling while in lockdown. What a way to start your schooling! But also what a story for your grandchildren.
Thank you everyone - Amesbury's awesome team of (approximately) 1000.
