Lock Down: Distancing yet Thrilling


“Lock down is for the body and not for the brain. Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”

The current lock down due to Novel Corona virus appears to be a thrilling experience as I got a lot of time to download resourceful teaching contents and write master notes creatively. I also prepared a variety of innovative teaching resources for my students and utilized this time effectively.

Additionally, I perceive that we have redeemed our planet Earth lately as now it is breathing pure air and is free of sound pollution. The pandemic has taught social etiquettes to many. Indeed, it is a blessing in disguise.

However, the social distancing is really taking a toll on us because we are away from our reporting team, colleagues and especially our students.

Nevertheless, I’m grateful to Reqelford International School which has given me an opportunity and platform to share my worksheets with the students and keep us connected.

“What we learn with pleasure we never forget”- is the learning from this difficult situation.
