Well, January didn’t turn out quite as we had expected it to. We were due back to school on January 6th but due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the opening of schools has been delayed and we are now into our 4th week of learning at home.

Here in Shielbaggan we are so lucky to be able to engage in learning online. Thanks to the great fundraising by our Parents Association last summer, we were able to purchase 10 Chromebooks and this added to the 10 iPads that we already had meant that anyone who did not have access to a device at home was able to borrow one from the school for this period of school closure.

This means that everyone in our school can connect with their teachers and classmates every day and although we are not in the school building, we can continue to work and learn.

Thanks so much to our wonderful Parents Association for the fundraising!
