We could never have imagined we would share our 21st newsletter during a pandemic. We are deeply sorry it is the case. Still, we do our best to keep moving forward, serving our families and community, working to be part of a brighter future.
Since lockdown began, we have produced and circulated over 60 unique Activity Sheets tailored to the profile of our scholars. We’ve responded to all requests for help, and select sheets have helped communities as far afield as Ghana.
Mindstretch staff have completed the Coronavirus Back2School Health & Safety course given by Sharon Isaacs, Registered Nurse and Educator. This adds to the Mindstretch Covid-19 Health & Hygiene Protocol that conforms with government legislation and scientific guidance.
Our Outreach Sheets are devised to help our Mindstretch families navigate and survive lock down with calm and continued learning. We also ensure relevant contributions considering the ‘new normal’. This week we looked at germs and preventing their spread. Two of our sheets, the ‘senior’ versions, can be accessed here:
It just so happens that our first newsletter of 2020 is our 20th edition. You can download it here: Newsletter 20 – we hope you enjoy the read. Our previous newsletters can be accessed under the Newsletter tab.
We hope 2020 serves all our friends well. We at Mindstretch look forward to continuing with energy and optimism in the love of our children.
Our Teachers are already at work preparing for the important job of teaching our Mindstretch scholars. We can’t wait to have every single child back with us on Wednesday. Happy New Year! We hope 2020 is a kind year to you all.
