Academics share back to school advice

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Children, parents and teachers will continue to have many questions since NSW schools moved to a staggered return of students on Monday 11 May to one day per week.

Knowing that one size never fits all, we suggest a successful return-to-school plan recognises the transition is foremost psychological. Quality learning experiences aside, we need to consider how children, parents and teachers are currently feeling about the return to school.

Information about COVID-19 on television, radio and social media has bombarded everyone. It’s certainly caused all sorts of worries for children, parents and teachers. So, to facilitate a smooth return to school, it is important to be truthful and provide as much certainty as we can. A rule of thumb: don’t over promise.
