Community Spirit

As we come to the end of our first full week of Virtual Learning, we have been overwhelmed by the spirit of community, not just within Prior Park School but the whole of Gibraltar.

Computer Science Teacher, Mr McAuliffe has been working tirelessly each day to 3D print protective face shields to send to the hospital and Primary Care Centre. The 3D printer and other equipment in our ‘Maker Space’ was kindly funded by donors Askok Rupani, Gibtel, GVC and Greg Butcher, two years ago.

The innovative initiative will provide some personal protection for our front line health care workers, as they too work tirelessly to beat COVID-19.

The school also decided to donate its stock of medical gloves to the GHA, their needs being much greater at this time.

Another huge thanks must go to Mr McAuliffe for his work setting up Microsoft Teams for the entire school to use for remote learning. With a few inevitable teething problems, the lessons are working really well and we have received lots of lovely feedback from parents at home.

 

Whilst these strange times mean we cannot be together physically as a school community, we certainly don’t feel alone! Every day our teachers and students come up with fantastic ways to stay engaged, entertained and connected to each other.

From virtual chemistry experiments and portrait-drawing tutorials, to Mrs Devincenzi-Clemens broadcasting her Zumba classes live to students’ living rooms!

We’ve all been touched by how adaptive our students and staff have been, especially those who have helped others get to grips with the new ways of working. Together, we will emerge stronger and even more united as a community.
