A year like no other
With a shift of the stars
COVID took hold.
The world that we knew
Took on a new mould
Apart yet together
Our home became school
Both students and staff
Had tech lessons to learn ,
Pyjama school continued
Now working through zoom.
We made it through lock-down
By supporting each other .
Hurrah for September,
Schools back but all's changed
Our masked life's rearranged.
Socially distanced and talking through glass
Our bubbles a class,
VIS adapts to the rules .
Temperature checks as cases increased.
Teachers kept home and school learners on track.
Events were all cancelled, meetings all ceased.
Worried and scared we were here for each other.
The whole community working together
Out of the crisis has come opportunity
Out of the problem has come ingenuity .
Sadder but stronger though life's not the same
We stay safe and proud, accepting the change
VIS meets the challenge and all up our game
As our year like no other
now draws to a close ,
A vaccine brings hope and the stars shift again
As an end is in sight to covid and pain
This stricken world now will begin to recover.
Thank you to all – staff, students and parents
