How Hampton High has changed because of Covid

This week’s opinion piece is about how Hampton High has changed because of Covid By Molly G, School Prefect Since the start of the Covid-19 crisis, there has been a massive overhaul and shift regarding all aspects of life. One of the most notable for us students is the complete change in almost every part of our typical school life. From struggling with slow, unresponsive Microsoft Teams lessons, to a total shift in the timetabling and schedule of our school day; it is fair to say that the current school year has taken some adjusting to for pretty much everybody.   For one, online learning has definitively become a staple diet of 2020. After schools closed in March, many primary and secondary schools were forced to transition to online platforms, such as Satchel (Show My Homework) or Microsoft Teams in order to keep vital learning going. An online survey completed between April and May of this year, including 4,000 parents, found that “Primary and Secondary pupils were each spending about 5 hours a day on average on home learning”, as reported by the Institute for Fiscal Studies. However, while many students were able to comfortably access these online platforms and resources, it is essential to remember that these conditions did cause disadvantage to some; the same report found that students from lower income families were likely to spend much less time online learning due to a multitude of reasons – many could not or did not have access to the internet or a workable device to carry out work on, or there were other responsibilities preventing them, such as taking care of siblings.   While all of this has proved significant to students throughout the country, how did it impact on Hampton specifically? Well there has been a great deal of change. Recently, the rule of wearing face masks in the communal areas of the school has been introduced in an attempt to lessen the chance of transmission. Each year group now has its own “bubble” and must stay in their designated area of the school for the duration of the school day – which was admittedly a strange sight and sound during lunch for the first week or so, and a stark contrast to the packed hustle and bustle of the canteen that now seems a lifetime ago!   Overall, it seems fair to say that so far this year has been startlingly unique, and although it has been unpredictable, stressful at times, and very new at some point, things will return to some semblance of normal, even if we are unsure when. Education in general has seen a huge shift and we can only look to the future and see what happens next, while not forgetting the huge impacts that this crisis has had on everybody.

What’s happening in Australia?

This week’s opinion piece is a global piece: By Lucy J, School Prefect   It may not seem relevant for me to be talking about Australia; however, it is more important than ever today for us to have a global mindset and keep up to date with worldwide issues, such as the Coronavirus, as it has left a detrimental impact on all of us across the whole wide world.   Australia has been affected by the pandemic very differently from the UK as a result of having different restrictions and policies in place. The Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, initially closed all Australian borders to non-residents on the 20th March 2020. This had a positive result as there was no constant stream of people travelling with the virus into the country. This, plus a nationwide lockdown, made the cases relatively low compared to the rest of the world, particularly at a first glance.   However, there has been a second wave of infections, which surged in Melbourne back in June, which resulted in a strict lockdown. Australia’s approach was often praised by the media as they acted quickly to tackle the infection. Yet it is important to remember, when comparing Australia to the UK, that the UK has nearly three times the population of Australia, so numerically our virus cases appear to be larger.   Australia has suffered turbulence this year, despite the pandemic, facing multiple protests throughout the year. One of the biggest protests, causing the greatest disruption, was the anti-lockdown protests. Some Australians were demanding that the lockdown restrictions were lifted, feeling their liberty and freedom have been taken away. In Melbourne, the Covid restrictions were extremely harsh, resulting in unrest amongst its people. Additionally, the Black Lives Matter Protests earlier in the year after the horrific killing of George Floyd in Minnesota in May were prominent in Australia.   Overall, Coronavirus has had a devastating impact on nearly every single person’s life from across the world. We are all interconnected. It is therefore always important to remain in touch with global current affairs and to remember we are all in this together.
