Learning at Home – Edition 4

We’re in this together

 

Dear Parents, Guardians and Families,

We hope this finds you all well, staying warm and enjoying some sunshine when it appears!

Mother’s Day is significant for each and every one of us in many and varied ways. For our Mum’s and special people in our students lives, we hope you were celebrated in the style you so truly deserve and created new and treasured memories. We also hope you had the opportunity to celebrate the extraordinary women that have impacted your lives, some time for quiet reflection, reminiscing and remembering the love, influence and life of these special and cherished women.

Thank you to the staff and school bus service who made sure your Learning at Home packs, Help Hampers and Mother’s/Special Person Days gifts were received either on Thursday or Friday of last week. We hope that in these uncertain times these resources, supplies and gifts support you and remind you that you are in our thoughts each and every day!

You may have heard today that the Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has announced that a gradual, staged, face to face return to school plan will be considered prior to the end of Term 2 ensuring a safe, cautious and appropriate approach is taken. We expect further information to be provided by the Premier, in response to this the Department of Education and Training will provide schools with guidance which will inform our return to school plan. Until this guidance is received, there will be no change to the current school operations. As always, I will inform you through Seesaw and SchoolStream as information and updates become available.

This week your child’s classroom teacher will be contacting you through a private message on SeeSaw to check in about how your child is accessing the learning activities, both on SeeSaw and the home packs. They will also be checking in to see if there are any other resources that could support your child’s learning and engagement at home.

We are and will always do our best to support our students and you their families, working in partnership to ensure the best educational outcomes, even though remote. Please let us know if there is any feedback you have or ways in which we can be further supporting you.

 

Stay safe and healthy.
