We have had a fantastic and positive start to Term 2 and it is lovely to reconnect with everyone. I would like to personally extend a huge thank you to our staff and school community during this time. Our staff are an amazing team that have our students best interests at heart (socially, emotionally and academically) and this is reflected in their work each and every day. I am very privileged to work with such a great team. Thank you to our school community for your support and understanding and working with us during this very difficult and different time.
Now that school has returned for Term 2 and our focus is on face to face teaching whilst continuing to provide an online program (to support students/families who are self-isolating) we are reviewing how we implement our teaching and learning programs, as we have had almost an 80% attendance rate this week. Next week we are expecting a higher attendance rate than 80%. Therefore we are advising that the online program will continue but may not be as detailed as previously communicated to you last term.
This term we warmly welcome Cassie Kopias as the Literacy Coordinator (Term 2 - Term 4) and Sophia Graham EALD (English as Additional Language and Dialect) teacher until the end of the year. We are delighted to have these highly experienced staff on our team.
Happy Haven ran a very successful Vacation Care Program and I wish to thank them for being flexible, adaptable and so accommodating to our school's needs during this time. Thanks must also go to Mary (Coordinator) for her work developing and implementing the program.
During the school holidays (& just prior) many upgrades were completed. Please see article below about the works completed. I am delighted to announce that our new website was also launched. Please visit www.claphamps.sa.edu.au (our website) and provide us with some feedback. You can send feedback to our schools email address: firstname.lastname@example.org I hope that you are all well and safe and look forward to seeing you at drop off and pick up times.
