It was a real privilege to listen to Mr Alexander, a parent and consultant neonatal and paediatric surgeon, as he ran an online Zoom session for pupils of all ages, as well as staff, to help them understand the science behind COVID-19 and why it had caused a pandemic.
After his talk, Mr Alexander fielded questions from students, ranging from 'is it safe to take in your shopping?' to 'the complexity of herd immunity'. This was a really rewarding discussion and pupils left the meeting feeling more informed.
It is hoped that the School are able to run another session very soon. Many thanks to Mr Alexander for giving up his time to speak to Habs pupils.
