Happy Friday everyone!
As we head toward the school holidays and into a further few weeks of stage four restrictions I wanted to share with you some ideas for keeping busy at home. As the weather gets warmer and the sun starts to shine it becomes more difficult to remain strong in terms of adhering to the restrictions. People are entering into a phase of ‘isolation fatigue’ as the period of stage four restrictions go on.
I have had a few parents concerned about the number of children they see playing together in the community. I urge you to stay strong!
A curfew is in place between the hours of 8pm until 5am. This means you must be at your home during these hours. The only reasons to leave home between 8pm and 5am will be work, medical care and caregiving.
The four reasons that you can leave home remain, but further limitations are now in place for:
shopping for food or other essential items
exercise (applies to outdoor exercise, and with only one other person)
Caregiving, for compassionate reasons or to seek medical treatment also remains a permitted reason to leave home.
As much as you can, you must stay at home. When you leave home, you must use a face covering, unless you have a lawful reason for not doing so.
It is at this time of the year that we usually start to celebrate the end of the AFL season and have our annual Footy Colours Parade. Remember to send in your footy colours photo to your child’s teacher. They can be AFL teams, Soccer, Basketball or any other team you barrack for. The photos will be entered into a virtual Footy Parade for the last day of term.
Learn From Home Packs
The Learn from Home packages will be made available from 10am every Monday. Please keep the work that your child completes so that you can return it to school once we are back onsite.https://sites.google.com/education.vic.gov.au/lfh-with-pps
