Welcoming Pupils Back to School

By Wale Akinwale on September 25th, 2020

In many parts of the country today, pupils and students return to school after a long break caused by the lockdown measures to check Corona virus pandemic.

It’s been a difficult time for everyone, especially pupils who have not had physical contact with their peers and teachers for a long time. They will arrive with a mix of emotions and as it happens, many kids tend to feel anxious about starting school, especially after such a long break.

Welcome Back to School

Teachers can make their classrooms welcoming on the first day of school through :

  • Sharing stories about the lockdown with students and asking them to share their experience.
  • Engaging them in a discussion on adherance to COVID-19 preventive measures.
  • Giving them something to memorialize the first day. A symbolic gift or a promise of gift is a good idea.
  • Recommending the tools and materials that can help them in their learning.
  • Engaging in fun activities like decorating entrances and exit.
  • Decorating floor markings to direct foot traffic flows can help students and staff maintain physical distance.
  • Motivating them by emphasizing what they can do and promise to give them your best.
