It’s been a long time coming and finally, after a lot of careful planning, it’s been deemed safe enough for our little ones to return to their schools, pre-schools, nurseries and playgroups.

If you’ve been home-schooling or trying to keep your children entertained for the past five months at home, then well done! I’m sure you are more than ready for the return-to-school.

For some of you, your little ones will be going to school for the very first time, already a daunting experience and heightened even more with what has been a trying few months.

We’ve seen how hard you’ve worked, and wanted to say well done to all those parents, grandparents and other relatives who’ve worked tirelessly as a part-time teacher during lockdown and wish all of the children whether returning to school or just starting their education journey a bright and positive new school year.
