  1. Good news for 5th and 6th formers. Life indeed goes on and so should you. Rise to the challenge for your own sakes and for your futures.

    • Did you see any mention of 6th formers in the article? I do hope they benefit from the same arrangements.

  2. Will there be testing teachers and student’s alike to make sure that those who are A systematic does not spread the virus amongst student and staff? Also testing the school bus drivers and what protocols are put in place for the students that have to ride the bus? Remember this thing is still among us,I will be more at ease knowing that everyone will be tested and know there health status before re’entering the class room.
