We have made it through our first week of online classes; things are running smoothly, if not for a bit of Wi-Fi lag. For the past week and a half, Student Council members have been writing positive messages to the students that have been posted on the school social media. These messages feature words of encouragement and motivation for the students, as well as a series of fun facts, helpful tips, and suggestions for activities.
Each Student Council member has been drawing inspiration from their responsibilities on the council when writing these announcements. Our Minister of Social Activities provided a list of fun and creative activities to give students a break from their devices. Our Minister of Communications (that’s me) gave some fun facts about the learning brain; our Prime Minister shared helpful advice on goal setting and organization; our Minister of Athletics suggested ways to stay physically active while at home; our Minister of Finance focused on study habits and time management; and our Deputy Prime Minister talked about hope and perseverance during this difficult time.
These positive messages will continue throughout the month of January, as we hope to encourage the students of North Dundas to put their best efforts into online learning.
