A message from Fareham College Principal and Chief Executive, Andrew Kaye:
Today marks one year since the first national lockdown and the massive change to our daily lives that brought about. At that point there were 364 recorded deaths from Covid in the UK, the total now stands at 126,172. The indirect impact of Covid continues to be felt in the nation’s health, well-being and economy.
Over the least year there have been a huge number of challenges faced both individually and collectively. I’m not sure that at the time of the first lockdown we considered we would still be in and out of varying degrees of lockdown a year later. It’s evident that we are not yet at the end of the road but there are reasons to be optimistic about the roadmap out of current restrictions.
The Marie Curie Trust is calling for a National Day of Reflection, including a minutes silence at noon today.

I encourage you to take a moment to pause today at noon. You’ll have your own personal reflections of the past year and what you hope for the future, collectively though I think we can be proud of the role we have played in supporting each other through what has been a very difficult year.
Thank you for your continued hard work.
