Marist Brothers Linmeyer staff, Mrs Tiziana Harris (Grade 1 Educator) and Mrs Lidia Crismann (Aftercare Educator), shared their COVID-19 experiences with each grade in the Primary School from Monday, 2 November 2020 until Tuesday, 10 November 2020. These sessions were important in raising an awareness that COVID-19 stats are real, the disease is real and that students need to always wear their masks and wash their hands to prevent the spread of the virus.
Mrs Harris and Mrs Crismann’s COVID-19 recovery stories gave hope to students that we can beat this but also preached that prevention is better than cure. They made it real by demonstrating what happens to a person’s body when they contract the virus. Mrs Harris has comorbidities but wanted to assure students that with good healthcare and prevention, even health risk patients can beat the virus. In the pictures, Mrs Harris is wearing an apron with lungs and circulatory system to explain what happens and to show how clotting occurs in the human body.
