Maintaining what you feel is normal will be hard. However, through some simple points, you can work towards continuing to be the best you.

It's during challenging times that you see the best in people. At St Paul’s, a number of these concepts are discussed at length.
- Give your best effort, this should apply in your online classes
- Respect your learning and others right to learn
- Make sure you look after your wellbeing
- Make a difference by doing something for others to make their day better. With limited physical connection, it is important to still do something for others. This might be calling someone you haven’t spoken to in a while or doing something for someone who is close to you.
Good luck in being the best you.
