The start of something new brings the hope of something great
After 2 years of silent hallways and empty classrooms, it was a delight to welcome all our students back into the building. The extensive preparation and planning put into making school re-entry safe and welcoming is a testament to the care and commitment of all teachers and admin staff at WGS.
Our aim for the first day back was to normalize the school day, have students reacclimatize to the building, and reengage positive connections with other students and teachers, all of which are essential for successful learning and growth moving forwards.
The start of the school year seemed more overwhelming than ever before. One could observe the mixed feelings of excitement, joy, and confusion among the students, parents, and teachers at WGS. It was wonderful to see shining eyes peeking over the tops of masks, as students arrived ready for the new school year.
The teachers prepared their classrooms to welcome their students with smiling faces. The students were excited to meet their friends and teachers and had a wonderful day with each other. All the students were made comfortable in classrooms and were handed over takeaways to cherish their first-of physical schooling a memorable one.
Thank you to all parents for helping to prepare (y)our children for the first day of school, as this had a huge impact on helping us in making the transition of physical schooling successful.
