OzKids Magazine

Issue 2 - 2020

Our lives changed a few months ago. Staying home was the new norm. While I was able to get a lot more done without sports and Mum’s taxi, Australia’s students were busy changing to home schooling via video links, phone calls and emails. So entries had initially been slow coming. Art entries continued as students were able to spend time being creative with paints and pencils. Some parents worked from home, while some found themselves out of work.

Now is a good time to write about your experience and emotions, how you dealt with the change to home schooling and what you achieved while home. Even if you don’t send it in to us, it is good to keep and read later, as part of your history. Just like the story Café Melbona, written by Zac Kurzbock in this edition.
Look after one another as you return to school and to those who will be returning to work.
