Dear Parents,

My video below covers all the main points, but to reiterate;

Chrome-books and ipads are still available, just go here to sign up.

We are still taking feedback about distance learning- 469 families have responded to date!

Teachers and EA’s are doing an amazing job of responding to feedback from children and parents and planning meaningful learning experiences for children and connecting via Zoom or Google Meet.

Please remember that individual learning for your child can be very intense and tiring. It is not likely that they will be able to, nor should they, sit for 4-5 hours a day working. On a normal school day they move, collaborate, have hands on learning, have mindfulness breaks, undertake daily fitness, move around the school to specialists and have play and lunch breaks.

Please adjust what we provide to meet the needs of your child, together we can achieve success!

Take care, stay safe.

 

 

Kind regards

亲切的问候,

सधन्यवाद

Neill O’Reilly

Principal

 

PTA Update

From last week’s newsletter you have learned that our PTA Events, namely Bingo Night and the School Fair, will be postponed to Term 3 for now.

The school raffle draw will still take place on Saturday 14 March 2020. We run a government licensed raffle and the rules of conducting the raffle must apply. The date of the raffle draw will remain the same. As such, we will need all raffle stubs and unsold raffle tickets submitted back to school by Monday, 9 March 2020.

 

More details about the raffle draw will be released soon.

School lunch menus will go out prior to the reopening of schools.

We thank you for your help with the raffle during this challenging time and hope you and your families stay safe and well.

 

Kind regards,

Saloni Melwani

Chair, PTA
