The outbreak of the coronavirus has forced the world to embrace a "new normal".

Terms like elbow greeting and physical distancing are now part of our daily vocabulary. 

A new way of living and doing things has become paramount in order for us to survive.

They had to embrace a new schooling environment compared to the one they left before the lockdown.
