AWSUM asked Clarendon High School for Girls’ head girl, Tawongaisha Julia Nhawu how she is coping with the lockdown.
What is the best thing about lockdown?
Late mornings, afternoon naps and school on my terms
What is the worst thing about lockdown?
Having my parents monitor my school work
Have you binge-watched a series since schools closed? If yes, which one?
DEFINITELY! Foursome has been my favourite
What is your school doing for online learning?
We are using Google Classroom, Whatsapp groups and a new awesome Clarendon Youtube page to follow daily timetables for all our subjects
How are you coping with online learning?
I’m actually having a lot of fun. My top survival technique is working ahead in subjects that I like so that I can make time to unwind
What are your plans for 2021?
To be done with Matric and COVID-19
What are you most looking forward to when lockdown ends (except for seeing your friends)?
What message would you like to send to your fellow scholars?
COVID-19 lockdown is teaching us really important lessons for our future – we need to learn to adapt, become computer literate, work when no one is watching and most importantly, value the things that make us human: a hug, a walk on the beach, friendship beyond a screen – if we look carefully, we can salvage a bright side to this lockdown.
