Hi Sinead,

Thanks for your post. The effects of the pandemic can still be seen and some children are only now starting to show adverse reactions to certain triggers. The Department’s new Wellbeing Policy Statement and Plan (which involved surveying the school community) outlined a significant proportion of children in our school with various social anxieties. It is very interesting that you have noted such a difference in the level of your senor infant classes. This cohort of children would have missed a significant amount of the ECCE years – this time is so important as it allows them to develop and mature through interaction with their teachers, and with peers at a similar level to them.
