Holy Trinity Primary Granville

Term 1 Week 10 - 3rd April 2020

From the Leadership Team

Philip Mahony | Principal

Dear Parents and Carers,

 Today is the last day for term One and next week is Holy Week. The coronavirus outbreak has changed our lives and most things are closed, even Churches. As Catholics it is important that we reflect on the events of Holy Week and prepare for Easter Sunday. The teachers have shared information for the students to reflect on Holy Week next week online.

     The Sacred Triduum

A "triduum" is a three-day period (the word comes from the Latin - tres Dies. The Easter Triduum is a three-day period in which Christians celebrate what Easter means to them. It is the pinnacle of the liturgical year. The three days are three days of mystery.

The Easter Triduum is when we remember the death and resurrection of Jesus. These days call to mind the last meal and arrest of Jesus ( Holy Thursday Evening), the crucifixion and burial of Jesus (Good Friday), and the resurrection of Jesus (Easter Sunday).

While you can not attend the services this year, they will be available online, explain to your children the meaning of each event. When they are enjoying their Easter Eggs also stress with them that the eggs mean New Life, that is New Life in the risen Lord for all of us.

TERM 2 is scheduled to commence on Monday 27th April.

Remote Learning - Google Classroom

Well we are coming to the end of our second week of remote learning and by enlarge it has been very successful. There are some students, however that are still not completing the set work. Each teacher is posting around three lessons per day on the Google Classroom platform for each grade. It is extremely important that the children continue their learning while they are at home, otherwise they will fall behind.

Hard copies of the work are available for pick up on each Monday at 9.00 - 10.00am and 2.00 - 3.00pm. This is the work from the previous week.

There are some handy hints and procedures that need to be followed when using Google Classroom -

* Comments should only be used by the students to ask questions about the learning. If students have a specific question for their teachers they can use the private comment function and comment directly with their teacher.

* The students need to hand the work by either pressing the ‘turn it in’ or the ‘hand it in’ buttons. Otherwise the teachers do not know what work has been completed.

* The students need to complete the tasks set to the best of their abilities. The children should not ‘just get the task done’. This will be monitored by the teachers and feedback will be given.

* Parents remember that infants activities such reading are repetitive activities and should be done daily for at least a week. They are not one of activities.

Information for parents has been shared via Skool Bag and email. If parents have any questions regarding their child’s learning please do not hesitate to contact the school for support.

Holy Mass: For most of us, not attending church over the Holy Week and Easter period is something we have not had to contemplate before. Thankfully we are part of a parish which embraces technology and masses celebrated by Fr Andrew over this period are available over YouTube. You can subscribe to Holy Trinity Parish by following the link.

Holy Week via Google Classroom: On Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday, special prayer services created by Parramatta Catholic Education have been scheduled for children to participate in with their families. We encourage you to take some time on these special days to pray with your children and share some of your stories and traditions.

Blessings to All: The teachers have been dearly missing the students and have been thinking about them constantly over this period of remote learning. We are praying that the joy of God can find you and your families through these difficult times and we look forward to being reunited with all in the community in the future.
