Our staff are aware that if they are unwell they need to remain at home. We also ask that families keep any children who are feeling unwell or presenting with cold or flu like symptoms at home. Please seek medical advice to get clearance for your child to return to school.
Today life at St John the Baptist feels almost back to normal. Our Year 3-6 teachers have been counting down for the past two weeks since our juniors arrived onsite to welcome back their children. This morning had an air of excitement as the Preps saw their big buddies after all this time. The positive interactions that happen between all year levels in our school is a real strength of our community. Today there was just so much to share. Whilst hugging is off the agenda at the moment due to social distancing there certainly were plenty of big smiles to let each other know how glad we were to be back together again. Now we just have to count down to the day when we can have our wonderful parents and carers also sharing in our learning spaces. I have included in this week's newsletter some photos that show you how inviting your children's classrooms are. I know it is not quite the same as seeing them in person but hopefully the photos give you some insight into the engaging and welcoming learning environments your children are fortunate to be part of each day.
