This term has been a whirlwind, with too many activities taking place. This term was particularly long as it merged with half of term 1 then the holidays, and now term 2! This specific term has been for nearly 22 weeks! As you know through the COVID-19 crisis schools were closed and kids were forced to do school through online meetings with their teachers. This happened all around the globe, when the world entered lockdown.
Lockdown was particularly fun, school was easy, more sleep-in’s and more chilled, I do miss it. But you never saw your friends. That was a bummer. When we appeared in school everything was different, desks spread apart, hand sanitiser appearing in the teacher’s hands before you came or left. There’s too many highlights to choose, skateboarding, tech, matariki, assembly’s and WAY more. This term has been a hurricane, too many things colliding.
My particular favourite activity was skateboarding where everyone had 30 mins to learn how to skateboard every Tuesday and Thursday, it is obsessively fun. Thanks to our instructors, Laurence and Simon. They are absolute PRO’s. From the moment they put us on a skateboard they showed us how to do tricks! The famous Ollie, the Coffin, the Meditate, even how to ride on two wheels, it was CRAZY fun.
