Concerns for those in their final school year
THE class of 2020 began its second term this week, adhering to the strict guidelines set out due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Students have been advised to stay home and learn online, while children of essential workers have been allowed to attend school.
Primary and high school students are now attending school, in person and online, during what is considered unprecedented times in our history.
Parents, teachers, and students are now eagerly waiting for the Queensland Government to make its next decision on May 17 on whether these measures will continue for the next few months.
Student in this year’s senior classes are under extreme pressure.
These last few terms for the Year 12s are crucial in deciding their future.
I graduated in 2012 and I found it stressful enough when there was no trace of Covid-19 in our society.
I wouldn’t blame the class of 2020 for feeling anxious, and stressed during this national health crisis.
I do believe these restrictions are necessary as the curve is beginning to decrease across the country.
Let’s just hope our Year 12s can see their way through it, achieving the best they can during these times.
