The new normal for littlies

In the old normal, Mason Slade would usually be going to Victoria Early Learning Centre. But in the new normal, home has become the classroom and playground for thousands of kids throughout the district until the lockdown comes to an end.

Mason, like so many youngsters in Gisborne, is continuing his education in his family bubble.
