Port Shepstone High School Grade 11 learner Tyler Hogan has shared his personal experience of the quarantine measures put in place because of COVID-19.
“It has been a learning curve which has been hard to adjust to and to cope with, but I’m always up for a new challenge,” he says.
“It is really scary with regards to the academic aspect because I don’t know what’s going to happen next. This however, has made me more grateful to be in the position I am in, where I can at least go back to school when this is over.
“It’s been a real challenge to try and keep busy at home but I’ve been exploring new hobbies. I’ve grown my passion for photography by teaching myself more of what there is to know on the subject.
“I’ve also been trying to keep as busy as possible with practicing the sports that I love whilst I’ve been at home. My appreciation for freedom and my mates has definitely become clearer.
“As a Christian, I’ve also been trying to learn new ways to improve my faith. As scary as the COVID-19 outbreak is, I believe that God will overcome all.”
Tyler is an extremely talented and well-rounded learner who is always keen to participate and help out wherever he is needed.
His passion for photography has been a great asset to the school where he has attended sporting fixtures in order to document the wonderful athletes of which Port Shepstone High School is so proud.
