Family & Home Schooling

Some tips and advice for homeschooling and keeping the kids entertained during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. 

The COVID-19 outbreak has had a profound impact on family life and school children in particular, who are now receiving home-school education. 

Social distancing restrictions means that children are now spending all of their time at home and for many parents and carers, this presents the challenge of managing their children's education whilst trying to maintain their own workload.

The resources below are designed to assist parents and children with the adjustment to this new daily routine, as well as providing some activities to beat the boredom of staying at home.
