Positive Climate for Learning
Jo Kelly – Acting Positive Climate for Learning Leader
Parents, Guardians and families,
Thank you again to all our wonderful students and families for your support and collaboration so far this term. We are now busy preparing to have our students back to school and I am sure the students are looking forward to coming back as much as we are. As we will have a number of strategies in place to support social distancing amongst our staff, some parts of the school day may look different for our students. You will have received a social story (uploaded to SeeSaw) to help with the transition back to school. We look forward to seeing all students on Tuesday, 26 May 2020.
Just a reminder that it is important for the school to know your child/ren’s attendance at school. During this current pandemic we understand some parents will choose to keep their children at home and other students will remain at home due to medical reasons. Either way can you please advise the school asap if you intend to keep your child/ren at home due to Covid and/or for medical reasons?
If your child/ren are about to turn 16, they may be eligible for the Disability pension. Contact Dee from the Positive Climate for Learning Team and she can advise you on the application process. Phone Dee on: 0414 265 484.
SSDS would like to welcome Gavin Duarte our school psychologist. Gavin started at Sunshine SDS in Term 1 and works Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays. Gavin supports the Positive Learning Support structure and will be part of the Team Around the Learner Process when students require additional supports to engage in teaching and learning. Please don’t hesitate to call the Positive Climate for Learning Team if you have any questions.
