Strawberries in the time of Covid 19
Can we all get our money back on 2020? So far, it’s been like a rotten strawberry in a punnet: looking good on the outside, on the shelf, but pretty yuck inside!
A day is a long time in these COVID-19 times, so what I am about to share may well be out of date – like that strawberry – before you finish reading it.
We are all about giving you experiences and skills and knowledge so that when you leave college, you can lead a meaningful, happy and productive life. That’s our job. Many of you have part-time jobs, carer responsibilities, you might play competitive sport, you might have a couple of hobbies going on. All of these ‘bits’ are contributing to that skillset I mentioned earlier. You’ve got skin in the game.
What I’d LOVE you to remember in all of this – ‘are we at school?’ ‘are we online?’ ‘are we both?’ – is that you already have a lot of the skills to get through the changes that school life is throwing at you. Don’t worry if it takes you heaps more time to get your head around learning online – you will have picked things up even by trying. That’s what I honestly believe about life. Give it a go.
Jobs might be harder to find in the rest of 2020 or in 2021 – we won’t know for sure until we try. So you might find yourself not being able to keep building skills via work. Talk to you teachers our people in College Life about skills that they can share with you – things that they found useful. Use the time to research and explore options you might once have laughed off. Give it a go. You are ‘COVID-Kids’, and the world will know that, accept it and find a way for you.
Work out how strawberry suppliers can organise it so that you get beautiful strawberries in that punnet.
Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible from Monday 18th May!
Our photography this week is titled “Emerging” and recognises the deep cleaning and those who have completed it that has been undertaken at the college in the past 4 weeks.
