What our students need now is encouragement to imagine themselves on the other side of the pandemic. They need a way to see this time as an opportunity to build a muscle for resilience, inner strength and self-confidence, qualities that will serve them for the rest of their lives. During this unprecedented time they have met some huge obstacles and have experienced major disappointments. This is the sad reality. But life is about change and learning to meet change with flexibility and imagination is the potential gift of living in this moment.  Like it or not, this unprecedented time is woven into the tapestries of our students’ lives. Our task is to help them see that within that tapestry is an inspiring pattern of courage and steadfastness that will make them capable of meeting any challenge in the future.
