After a week away from school, we are back! Returning felt very natural and welcomed. Stories started to flow from the children about what they had heard and what they had lived through. As a teacher, I felt the importance of being at school with the students and continuing our learning journey. However, there was also a sense of guilt to be leaving the squeegee and mop in the hands of other community members in order to return to Shearwater.
Over the last week our class has been busy making cards that we would like to circulate in Mullumbimby. We feel that now is a perfect time to remind people that they are loved. The cards include comments such as “we want you to know that you are loved and needed”, “you are a legend and we are lucky to have you”. These comments have come from the children. Each card has been given a touch of love and beauty.
Now we just have to work on getting these into the hands of people in our community who might appreciate a reminder of how much they are valued and appreciated.
