Today was a strange day in school. Taking a trip through the construction room was like scenes more commonly seen in a documentary. It was clear the room was abandoned with the intention to return. Tools, paint brushes and varnishes left on tables ready for the next days work.
On Thursday 12th March like many we were taken by surprise, the schools closed a week earlier then we had guessed. Nobody ever expected that was the last day of school for the class of 2020, we thought we’d back back after Easter or worst case the May bank holiday. Foot and Mouth, SARS, H1N1, Swine flu, all passed through in recent years and we all kept working. Confident we would be back the Construction class left the projects with a few small touches left to do before the final exams.
Every year at this time we post our projects for all to see, and this year will be no different. Keep in mind when you look at the projects, some are finished, some are almost there. The odd coat of varnish is needed, maybe a hinge or a clock, the cushions are mocked up but the sense of where we were going is clear.
Best of luck to the class of 2020, don’t be shy call in and say hello, our door will open again.
