Dear Parents & Guardians
Lockdown Extension: With the announcement of lockdown being extended into next week we advise the following:
Friday 4 June will be a Wellness Day - This will be a planning day for teachers to prepare for another 4 days of remote learning (Monday 7th June to Thursday 10th June). On-site supervision will still be available as per previous arrangements, however we ask if you can find alternative minding it would be appreciated. Teachers will be sending out a matrix of ‘Fun Activities’ that you may like to do together on Friday.
Operoo request form for Onsite Supervision for Friday 4 , requests must be submitted by 1:30pm, Thursday 3 June.
Operoo request form for Onsite Schooling for Mon 7 to Thu 10 will open Friday and we ask that it be completed by 12noon Sunday if required.
Friday 11 June, School Closure Day - This remains a school closure day as previously advised in order to relocate classrooms in readiness for our building project. No onsite supervision on this day.
Remote Learning: Thank you to all those who have ensured that their SeeSaw App is available. You will have noticed the live, small, focused reading groups we trialled this week. We are planning to continue these focus groups next week so please support your child/ren in logging in for their designated time. More information will be sent out Friday afternoon.
Catholic Education and National Reconciliation Week Liturgy: Last week the whole school gathered in the hall to pray and reflect (see picture above).
The theme for NRW is ‘More than words, reconciliation takes action’. As a catholic community, we are always encouraged to follow Jesus’ example of putting words into action. This winter, St Vinnies are asking us to help by donating non-perishable foods to their winter appeal.
School Disco: Cancelled: With the extension of the lockdown the Disco is now cancelled. Any tickets already purchased will be refunded within CDFpay, this will give you a credit to be used for future purchases through the canteen or uniform shop.
Swimming: As our last day of swimming was cancelled due to the lockdown we have a tentative booking for Monday 21 June to complete this should restrictions allow. Permissions will be sought via Operoo once we can confirm.
Scienceworks Whole School Excursion: Unfortunately our planned whole school excursion to Scienceworks next week has had to be cancelled, we will endeavour to rebook this once restrictions allow and you will be advised accordingly.
Friends of St John’s Meeting(TBC pending announcements on restrictions): June 15th, 9:15am Staffroom. It has been quite some time since our last meeting. We welcome new parents who would like to be involved in fundraising for the benefit of our students. If you cannot make this meeting but would like to be involved in some way, please email the school, firstname.lastname@example.org and we can add you as an apology.
We hope that you are all well and coping with Lockdown 4.0, we look forward to hopefully seeing everyone back at school on Monday 14 June.
Chris Dortmans, Principal
