Dear Colleagues,

Our next big challenges after the pandemic will be to get back children to school. We will face an unprecedented challenge: how will children and teachers come back together in the school classrooms, corridors and playgrounds in ways that are physically safe and also emotionally and relationally healthy? 

Some children will be excited, but a lot of them, who enjoyed their time away from school, will face difficulties. We have to handle the new situation and try to re-engage all of these children, and this job will be harder than ever. This newsletter tries to bring you some suggestions and ideas to support these activities. 

If you’d like to hear more from us, please follow our Facebook page and join our group to discuss practical questions! 

Yours in solidarity,
The Child Protection Hub Team
