Term 1 2020: Week 10 Newsletter

Updated: May 13, 2020

"Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn" - Ralph Waldo Emerson

As the world continues to fight the battle against COVID-19, it's time to stay positive about a new ray of hope that will shine bright on all of us very soon. The life will come back to normal. There is going to be a day very soon when we all can meet each other without any restrictions on social gatherings. For that, we need to continue to slow the spread of this virus. Some countries like Australia and New Zealand have already been successful in flattening their curves. But, this is not the time to become complacent. We need to continue following social distancing and stay at home. No virus is going to affect you unless you go out and invite the virus to your house.
