Welcome to our Summer 2020 E-Síol
We are heading towards the end of May and what for many of you would be the end of another school year and for some, the ‘exam season’. But as we all know,this is no ordinary year. None of us – young or old would have envisaged that remote classes, on-line assignments and zoom calls would become our new normal.
Covid-19 has also initiated another new normal. While you have been forced tokeep separate to stay safe, you have also come together to reach into yourcommunities in an amazing number of ways. I know that many of you arevolunteering in your towns to check in on or bring shopping to older people. You have started fundraising campaigns to support frontline workers and localcharities. Still more of you are doing things like making masks or delivering hampers.
This is fantastic work and is building caring communities throughout the country. It is this sense of togetherness that will bring us through this pandemic and will make our future a brighter place.
