How Coronavirus has Affected Me and My School

This week’s prefect topic is on the Coronavirus pandemic and its impact on young people.

By Hassan A, School Prefect

It’s strange to think that a year ago, none of us had ever heard of coronavirus. Even until January of this year, there were only vague rumours of a spreading virus in some distant city called Wuhan, in China. Nobody could have imagined how many lives would be lost and how many personal freedoms would be lost.
 
Within a few months, the virus' reach became much wider than just Wuhan, and as we all know, from March the country was told to: “stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives”. Schools were closing, and it’s fair to say that every student relished lockdown for the first month or so, relaxing at home without any worries. Microsoft Teams sessions were running throughout lockdown, which provided something resembling school lessons, but they were never quite the same. Imprisoned at home for so long, there was only so much to do, and the repetitive routine started to get to us.
 
It wasn’t until lockdown restrictions had eased in mid-June that students were called into school for weekly lessons in class-sized groups. It was a relief for me and many of my friends to be able to get out of the house and see each other again after three long months. I don’t think anybody was ever as glad to go back to school as students this June.
 
Since September, school has resumed as normal as possible in these strange times. Social distancing and hygiene measures are in place to ensure our safety, and while many students find these precautions cumbersome, they are in place to make sure things don’t get bad enough for us to be sent home again. Above all, I think that’s what we all fear most.
