School holidays for students from primary to tertiary levels have been brought forward from June to May, due to COVID-19 pandemic. After a month of home-based learning, parents and students finally can take a breather from the daily online learning routines.
However, this school holiday may be one of the most challenging school holiday periods for many. As we are still in the circuit breaker period, these students are not allowed to leave their homes and engage in outside activities. For teens and youth, this could pose as a challenge. You are not able to meet your friends outside, engage in outdoor sports activities and other social gatherings and leisure activities. This will be a very different school holiday experience.
However, you are not alone. Everybody is facing this challenge of having to stay at home during this period. While this may be very inconvenient for many of us, we are all aware of the need to do this, as part of our role to join the battle to fight COVID-19. Moreover, we are in this blessed month of Ramadan. We can take the opportunity of the break from our normal routine to do something different during this period.
Here are stay-home activities you can do, without having to go out during this period:
