EDUCATIONAL POINTS TO PONDER
Thank you for the 2020 educational highlights package in the NT News (28/12). The resilience, resourcefulness, creativity and coping strategies developed and practised by school staff and students in countering this most challenging of years deserves high praise. One can but hope that 2021 will be a less challenging educational year.
The year in education has been an Australian and indeed a worldwide educational year with significant difference to those of the past two or three decades. Students, staff, schools and their communities have had to cope with forced change like never before.
Some have coped better than others, but for all there was a significance that made this year one that stood out. For the most part, the standing out was for all
the wrong environmental reasons.
Well done on coming through and all the best for 2021.
