Covid19 Resources on Preparedness
As per Mrs Bonthuys’ letter for 21 May, it is important that you prepare your child before they return to school. They need to understand what COVID-19 is and how it is spread. We have created a online folder containing information, songs and videos for the kids as well a video on how to make your own masks at home.
We hope that it will be helpful!
