Looking forward to September
Without a doubt, it has been a tough year and I commend everyone’s hard work despite the less than perfect situation. As this academic year comes to an end, we are all looking forward to September, when we will all be united on campus once again.
We asked some of our friends from around the world to share with us what they are looking forward to in September.
Eben: Feeling part of a proper class community again
Nastya: Just simply returning to a sense of normality
Saratu: No longer having many time differences amongst all my friends; it’s been too much of a strain on my mental maths!
Anna: Not having to heavily rely on technology and my bad WiFi at home! Also getting to see people in person again
Tom: Being set free from quarantine so I can be my social self again
Hazel: Returning to a normal and more fulfilling school timetable and routine
I’m sure these thoughts and feelings resonate with us all, helping us remember that in a way we are still connected despite being physically apart. This time away from Concord has also clearly created an opportunity to reflect upon things we appreciate, but may’ve previously taken for granted. I think this will make the return back extra special. We look forward to seeing you all on a buzzing campus once again!
