The Learning Enhancement Team is working behind the scenes with students and families to support where we can.
The details for all of our counsellors and our Learning Support Co-ordinator, Julie Mulcahy, can be found HERE
We want to firstly acknowledge that whilst we are all this together, not everybody will be coping in the same way and this is really important to remember for our students.
Secondly, one of the team found this poem that sums up a positive attitude really well – a different way of looking at things.
Love in Action
When you go out and see the empty streets, the empty stadiums, the empty train platforms, don’t say to yourself, “It looks like the end of the world.”
What you’re seeing is love in action.
What you’re seeing in that negative space, is how much we do care for each other, for our grandparents, our parents, our brothers and sisters, for people we will never meet.
People will lose jobs over this. Some will lose their businesses. And some will lose their lives.
All the more reason to take a moment,
when you’re out on your walk,
or on your way to the store, or just watching the news, to look into the emptiness and marvel at all of that love.
Let it fill you and sustain you.
It isn’t the end of the world.
It is the most remarkable act of global solidarity we may ever witness”.
