Like so many other things, the Covid-19 pandemic has affected GenR8. Our staff team are now working from home and communicating remotely, whilst all the face-to-face work with schools and children has ceased. It’s very unlikely that our planned summer tour will go ahead and our It’s Your Move project planned for July, which supports Year 6 students moving to secondary schools, must also be in doubt. Sadly, we had to stop our Easter assembly visits to primary schools on 17th March, having visited only about a third of the schools.
Currently GenR8 staff are keeping themselves busy with a number of background tasks and challenges that have been on the ‘to do’ list for some time. We are also looking into how we might be able to support schools during this difficult time. We recently sent some Easter resources to schools in the local area and will be looking at further options over coming weeks.
