Mrs Bain spoke to all pupils in a virtual assembly today regarding the serious issue of health and safety. She thanked all pupils who have been responsible and patient in following all the new arrangements in school. She emphasised the uniqueness and seriousness of the situation we are in as a society. Mrs Bain said the situation we are in is as serious as anything else we have faced as a society in her lifetime.
Her message was that we are all responsible for the health and wellbeing of others as well as ourselves. It is tempting to fall into our old habits and ways as we relax into being in school again. However, the virus does not relax and we must all stick to the rules: cleanse hands, no close physical contact and follow all instructions given. We cannot afford to be complacent and consequences will be consistent and firm if health and safety is compromised.
It would help if families emphasised the health and safety messages at home as well. We greatly appreciate the support we receive from parents and carers in working together to keep our young folks safe and learning.
Here is a link to the video shown to all pupils today:
