For fun over Easter (only if needed)

Easter holidays have finally arrived, in the strangest way any of us have ever experienced. We feel that since we closed our doors on March 12th, so much has happened. This will be the same for everyone, but everyone’s experience will be very different. While a lot of people will be looking forward to the well-needed break from ‘home-schooling’, some people might like a few activites to keep them busy over the holidays.

We have compiled just a short list of links and a selection of activities should you need them.

This website is also excellent in terms of reminding your children what ‘superheroes’ they are at this time.

We, at Piercestown N.S. are SO PROUD of you all staying at home and keeping everyone safe! We know, this is not easy to do, and often we are missing our friends and extended family. So your children might enjoy this short video clip, to remind them how SUPER they are.
