Newsletter 21

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.

We social distance in class.
Fun face masks help desensitize our children to the real thing.

Over 60 and Counting …

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.

Covid-19 Health & Safety Certified

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.

Keeping Relevant

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:

🔅 PLAY – Fun-Time Masks
🔅 LEARNING – Germs & Hand Washing

Outreach Continues

Our OUTREACH continues well: one of our four activity sheets last week considered Rainbows. Now our kiddies are implementing the ideas at home.

Outreach Has Begun

These are historic times, difficult times, the kind of times that show a person or company for what they are. We at Mindstretch are mindful of our families locked up at home. And so we act to help!

We have initiated an OUTREACH PROGRAMME: our teachers CHECK IN through voice or video with their parents and children, and Mindstretch provides expert ACTIVITY SHEETS every week.

This is no complete substitute for our usual hands-on structured learning. We know that. But we also know we must do what we can to keep our learners moving forward.

We work together to be part of the solution.

Be Safe

Mindstretch is currently closed, per Presidential orders. We wish all our families and friends good health, calm and consideration. Treasure this time with your loved ones. We are thinking of you 💚.

Welcome to 2020

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.
