I am looking out of my office window and I am delighted. I see students. They are arriving on campus for their morning lesson – it is a wonderful sight to behold! After three months of lockdown, I am so happy to see students back on campus, where they should be, for some face to face lessons. King Ed’s just isn’t the same without them – in fact, without our students, we are nothing!
Last week marked the end of an unusual and exceptional phase in our college’s history. Never before have we had to close the college for so long to our students. Teaching and learning continued throughout the period of lockdown and I have been humbled by how quickly both teachers and students adapted to the challenges of a completely new way of working, without warning and without time to plan. We have all been tested during this period. It is often in times of challenge that the best comes through. Here are a few reflections on what we have been through over the course of the past two and a half months:
Here’s to life on campus with our students. Ever onwards, we go!
