COVID-19Preserving your school community's history and experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic for future generations.

COVID-19 Community history | Overview: Introduction

IntroductionIn 2020 Mentone Girls' Grammar School, along with the rest of Australia, was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The School stayed open but students, other than students whose parents were essential workers, learned remotely from home.

During the 1918-1919 Spanish flu pandemic the School was closed but we have very little history from this period. This community history project is designed to capture our history and stories from the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown so it is available for future generations. The focus is on: what happened, how did we respond, how did we come together as community, how did we feel, what did we create, and what did we learn.
