Good morning parents. Last Friday we had our first conference call staff meeting, which was very successful. We discussed how we can deliver the school curriculum to our students remotely.
Should school closures continue beyond March 29th, this is what we have initially planned.
The school website will be used as a portal for our students to stay connected to our school community. Games and links to fun activities will be posted here for students to choose if they want to partake in them. This is intended to be social and fun allowing students to share their photos and catch up with each other.
All our teachers have created school based email accounts where they will be inviting you all to email them directly so your child can be sent curriculum based school work over the coming weeks, should the school closures continue.
As a school we do not have your email addresses already on file, so for your child to stay connected with their teacher and class work we need you to email us initially using the teachers individual email addresses listed below.
School work was sent home on Thursday 12th March that was intended to keep our students going until March 29th. We had no preparation time to ensure enough was sent home, given how suddenly the closures were announced. Teachers are spending this week planning and preparing virtual content that can be emailed home. We are trying our best to ensure we keep things meaningful for our students and ask you all to appreciate that this is trial and error for us, planning lessons virtually is new territory for us, we hope we will strike the right balance.
By emailing the teachers below you will be giving your consent for your email address to be used for school work to be sent to you on a weekly, possibly fortnightly basis.
You may be asked to email copies of your child’s work for their teacher to assess what was completed.
We understand that some families may not have access to laptops, our school content will reflect this and we will be asking for any materials at home to be used to complete this work. The good old fashioned pencil and paper will be employed at this time to be inclusive for everyone.
