Well what a whirlwind of a term that was. We must commend all of our learners for being resilient through a term like we have never experienced, but despite the lows and the uncertainly we remain very proud of all the learning they have done during the past 10 weeks.
To our parent community. We miss you and we are really looking forward to reconnecting with you all. From Monday 29 June, we are able to welcome all parents back on grounds. We ask however that you do not enter our classroom areas or corridors. This is still in line with department guidelines. Volunteers may be able to resume but must ensure that they enter through the Office and sign contact tracing forms. Sport looks likely to be starting Term 3.
Reports will be coming home next week. Please take the time to work through the report with your child. We know there has been some impact on learning due to covid, but families should be genuinely pleased at the gains made.
Year 7 in High School 2022
As many of you know by now Year 7 will be taught in high school from Term 1, 2022. This means from 2022, Year 6 will be the last year of primary school and Year 7 will be the first year of high school. This is a big change for our public education system. We will be providing regular updates about the transition and what it means for your child.
Year 7 is already part of high school across the country, so South Australia is coming in line with the rest of Australia, and with other education systems in our state.
If your child is in Year 5 or 6 this year, they will be graduating from primary school next year. To get ready, we will be talking to you about graduation ceremonies, leadership opportunities and graduation jumpers or tops for the graduating classes of 2021. Stay tuned and please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
