March 18 -The Corona virus at school In addition to my music, I work as a group teacher at a primary school.
By combating the coronavirus, the Netherlands is now also at a loss.
The schools had to remain open last week, the schools will be closed
from Monday. Last Monday we first had a meeting at school
about how we could still provide education together.
Then start preparing. On Tuesday morning, all children were able to
collect their books and notebooks and start working online this morning.
We worked hard! I collected all the phone numbers of the children
myself (group 8) and created a group chat.
The good morning arrived early via WhatsApp. At 9 o'clock the work schedule
was sent with a lesson letter via the Parro app, the mail and I also sent
the files as images in the whatsapp group. After some children had some questions, everyone started working at home.
At the end of the afternoon I received daily reports by email. It is all quite drastic. The whole society upside down.
At the last minute, the report that the cito final test for group 8 is
canceled this year. Not everyone is happy with that. When I got back home, my daughter, who is in high school, took online
lessons through Google Meet. I think that this whole event can lead to a
completely different direction. M curious. I try to get the most out of
it as much as possible. Musically, all performances up to and including
April have been canceled. Playing on the street is currently also not done.
As a metro musician, Paris is urged not to play in the metro. I would go back to Paris in early April to renew my permit, of course
I also had to cancel this trip. Fortunately, the NS reimbursed all costs. So much for the update.
