Our College’s student leaders have responded to the personal challenges of the global health crisis with a heartwarming video, “Hope” to support their fellow students and teachers.
“We had our first Zoom meeting last week where we discussed some of the things we could do from home to ensure our students and school community still felt connected and supported,” explains video brainchild and College Vice Captain Sarah Mok.
“I am sure all students are finding it very difficult not seeing their friends, peers and teachers at a time that is very stressful for all of us,” says Sarah.
“There has been a lot of sadness and worry in this time of change.
”I was inspired to make this video to cheer everyone up and remind our students that we are still here for each other.”
Watch the video “Hope”.
Producing the video became an unexpected opportunity for learning and leadership growth.
“I asked everyone in the Senior Leadership Team to email me a video with a message of hope,” explains Sarah.
The girls needed to rapidly acquire a variety of production skills; all the while working remotely and communicating through group email.
“Even though we are not able to come together as a College community, we still believe togetherness can be achieved through activities like the Yellow Ribbon Campaign, which will be a constant reminder that we are still here for each other,” says Sarah.
“I don’t think we will ever now take school and the opportunity to see our friends and teachers every day for granted.”
