You all eventually received an email this morning from Dr Sally Towns. For some of our families, today is Day 20 in online remote learning. For some families it is Day 1.
All staff have spent today finalising the term with their stage groups.
Since our Day 1, we have spent the time learning how to manage an online learning environment, using the materials and the curriculum that we had planned and used with the children at school.
From the beginning of Term 2, our curriculum and materials will incorporate resources which the Diocese of Lismore is preparing for support.
- I am incredibly proud of every child who has begun their new world of learning with you at home.
- I am incredibly impressed by the commitment of families to both keep the children safe and maintain learning.
and you will not be surprised to hear that
- I am in awe at the resilience of the staff who have been deep in new learning for a whole month.
Next week, we will be taking the new learnings from this time and looking at the online processes we have already tested and adapted. We will learn more new skills (see below who needs to do a course or two!) and review where we can offer a more refined product. We will pause in prayer to pray for our community and reflect upon the coming Season of Easter.
School will resume for all children on Monday 27th of April.
