I am very proud of the efforts, commitment and dedication of our whole community throughout the last two weeks. The transition to remote learning has been very smooth and although it comes with its challenges I believe that everyone is doing their very best.
Further in the newsletter is a celebration of student work samples from across the school.
The restrictions remain the same as published earlier in the week. I have some repeated information below as a reminder.
Our learn from home packs will be available on the website - this is for those of you who prefer the paper packages https://sites.google.com/education.vic.gov.au/lfh-with-pps/home
We are offering some on-site supervision - same as previously. This is limited to those of you who qualify through the department’s criteria:
Children where both parents and/or carers are considered authorised workers who cannot work from home, work for an essential provider and where no other supervision arrangements can be made.
Where there are two parents/carers, both must be essential workers, working outside the home in order for their children to be eligible for on-site provision.
For single parents/carers, the essential worker must be working outside the home in order for their children to be eligible for on-site provision.
Children with a disability where family units cannot support learning at home.
Children experiencing vulnerability, including:
children in out-of-home care;
children deemed vulnerable by a government agency, funded family or family violence service, and assessed as requiring education and care outside the family home;
children identified by a school or early childhood service as vulnerable, (including via referral from a government agency, or funded family or family violence service, homeless or youth justice service or mental health or other health service).
If you require onsite supervision at any stage please email me with your needs for Monday and Tuesday firstname.lastname@example.org. If you require any help or support with access to the online platforms again please contact either your class teacher, myself or Michelle.
When further information is available regarding the restrictions I will be in touch. I am very much hoping to see everyone again on Wednesday.
- The Y4-6 swimming session that was originally scheduled for next Tuesday will be rescheduled. We will let you know when once it is confirmed from the swim school.
- We will be running a second working bee with a focus on the front of the school - watch out for more details coming your way but please do save the date: 29th July 9:00am.
In term 3 we are holding our whole school assemblies on a Monday afternoon. Assembly will start at 3pm as usual. We intend to move afternoon tea break back by 10 minutes to allow us more time in the assembly space. The movement of our assembly was in response to feedback we received and is a trial. The children are more attentive and can participate on a different level on a Monday afternoon. To try and help support parent participation we will publish the dates of upcoming assembly items so you can arrange to attend. It is super important to remember that primary schools are busy places and things do change!
Please note week 1, 2 and 3 have been postponed until further notice!
