Term 3 Week 7 Monday 24th August
Our Prayer This Week
From the principal
Dear parents, guardians and students,
We are well and truly in the swing of remote learning now and we are delighted with the energy and attention students and parents are giving to ensure this is a successful process. The challenge for all of us is to maintain this for the entire remote learning time. In our previous Stage 3 restrictions we had a high dropoff rate and we are working hard to avoid this in our second session of remote learning.
We have had some feedback that some of the junior students are completing their work very quickly. Just a reminder that the teachers often discuss additional tasks when they present the video so please sit with your child and listen in to these calls and you will know what these tasks are. We have also put a "Fast Finishers" task sheet in the purple packs for next week. There is also a "Learning Resources" page on Google classroom that has many online activities for use on the computer. We hope this helps our junior families next week.
Online at Home
A reminder to parents that our school online protection does not work when devices are operated from home. Parents are responsible for the safety of their children in the new virtual space of Google hangouts and Google meet. Please ensure there is supervision of children accessing these video conference options outside our organised contact times as we are not monitoring their use then.
Just a reminder that we are still taking the roll each day of who has attended class on the Video Conference. If your child is unwell or not doing school work on a particular day, can you please notify the school.
Can parents please ensure that the children are punctual to our video conference each morning as late comers often need a recap to ensure they understand the school work. Please feel free to sit in on these and use them if you wish to speak to the teacher during the session or afterwards when everyone else has hung up.
Father's Day 2020
Father's Day 2020 is going to be like no other. Just like Mother's day, we will not be able to celebrate the day together with a breakfast, or fun activities at school. To support families with activities to help make this day special at home, we are sending home some Father's Day packs. Any children at school last week would have brought theirs home and the rest were delivered to each family on Friday when we deliver the Junior learning packs. This will give the children plenty of time to get them done before September 6th. Good luck making it a special event in your household.
