As you would recall, last year we had to cancel our R-7 camp to Illawonga, due to the lockdown. That camp has been rebooked for Years 1-6 for Week 2 of Term 2 this year, which many parents have already paid for. With our current COVID restrictions, I am becoming nervous that we may again have to reschedule. Currently, only some SACE camps are allowed to occur. As of Week 7, other camps can resume, providing that they have no indoor communal settings (including dorms). Our camp does, of course, have indoor facilities for sleeping, eating and recreation. I am hoping that in the eight weeks from Week 7 until our camp, that further restrictions will be lifted. However, we will also have to be realistic, in terms of how much notice both families and the camp managers will require to go ahead with the camp. I will keep you updated, as I receive further information.
All students in Years 3 and 5 will be taking part in the NAPLAN tests early next term. On 24th March, these students will also take part in a practice test. The purpose of the practice test is to allow the students a chance to become familiar with the online format of the test and to also test our IT capabilities.
Please see further on in this newsletter for the NAPLAN – privacy collection notice.
