Welcome to Term 2. I trust you made the very best of a difficult situation due to COVID - 19. We are hopeful school will look different than it recently has in the near future. I receive updates from The Health Department through my Education Director on a daily basis outlining where we sit as an organisation moving forward.
The consistent message remains the same.
· Practice social distancing
· Wash hands regularly
· School to be cleaned twice a day
· Playgrounds to be disinfected daily.
· Restrict the number of adults accessing foyers, classrooms and the school grounds.
These restrictions and actions remain active for the foreseeable future. I will keep community updated when new information can be shared.
Yesterday at The Whyalla Partnership Leadership meeting (where all school Principals come together), the topic of year 7 to 8 transition was raised. Information is being collated and will be forwarded to all families of year 7 students very soon. This will be distributed to your child.
This year we have initiated a program called Read, Write Inc. I am excited at the progress many students have achieved during the short time teachers have been delivering the program. Congratulations to all involved.
This week we have averaged 75% attendance rate. This is up from weeks 1 and 2. We look forward to having all students attending in the near future.
