St Catherine’s Blog – the view from my window

St Catherine’s Blog series celebrates the growth and development of the School community, all of whom contribute to its strength, diversity and generosity.

The view from my window

With COVID-19 restrictions, home schooling and limited social contact, the year 2020 has been challenging for all. For our Junior School teachers, who provided some stability to our students in the midst of uncertainty, this support offered the girls connection, joy and the development of a positive growth mindset despite the challenges and setbacks.

Mrs Courtney O’Brien, Deputy Head of Junior School shares with us her journey through the restrictions and the transition back to Brabreck, and why the ‘view from my window’ was important every day but particularly on the day our girls returned to Barbreck, here.
