Dear Parents and Carers,
We have almost made it to the end of a term that I’m sure we will never forget. It has been an incredible roller coaster ride for everyone involved. Thank you to our staff, the commitment and hard work it took to get remote learning up and running was immense. Then the energy it took to monitor, respond to feedback and adjust planning, mange student wellbeing and navigate working from home is a true testament your professionalism and strong work ethic.
Thank you to our parents, grandparents and carers who were thrown in the remote learning scenario that really stretched your comfort zones. I can image that you learnt quite a lot about your child/ren as learners. I would like you to keep what you learnt at the forefront of your mind for our parent teacher evenings planned for the early part of term three.
Lastly, I would like to thank our students. What an amazing, creative and resilient group of young people that we have in our school. I feel so privileged to come to work each day. Your grit, resilience and hard work through the remote learning inspires me to try as hard as I can for our wonderful school.
As you all know, things are not back to normal by any stretch, but these holidays are an opportunity to take a breath and rejuvenate so things can get back closer to normal in term three. Please enjoy and safe and restful holiday.
In term three there are a number of PFA events that we have made a decision about. The father’s day stall will continue as planned with provision being made for social distancing, we will make a plan that includes our parent volunteers, however we also have a back-up plan in the event that no volunteers are allowed onsite.
The school disco will not occur in term three however we will keep it on the agenda as a possibility for term four. Hopefully things are settled by then and we can run this fun student event.
I would like to extend our gratitude, on behalf of all the staff, for the generous parent led morning tea planned for our staff tomorrow. We plan to adhere to all of the social distancing rules and acknowledge the staff’s efforts throughout the term. It is such a generous and thoughtful gesture and we are grateful. Thank you.
Recently, I have been working closely with parent, Joseph Kiely, on an interior painting design for the school. We’re planning to give the inside of the school a facelift and aim to create an inspiring, engaging and dynamic environment where student learning thrives. Please click the link below to see our first draft of this plan and take up your chance to comment.
Early finish on Friday - 2:30pm
