Dear Parents,

Thank you for your support over the last week. As you can see via our Facebook page, children have been enjoying being back at school with their teachers, support staff and their friends.

We have been so humbled and reassured by the messages of support from parents as staff have worked to reposition events, camps and outings giving due consideration to student safety and wellbeing. Each school within ESF has needed to make decisions based on the location of their school, the location of outings, travel conditions for students, staff wellbeing and also the risk of separation anxiety. We are planning to reschedule the events we have postponed to provide enhanced opportunities for children to make the most of the experience and for the safety and wellbeing of all.

While we have uncertain times ahead, our goal continues to be to provide the best possible learning experiences for your children and support their AAROW’s of Success. If you have queries or concerns about your child’s learning or wellbeing, please contact your child’s teacher or me, and we will do all we can to help.


Kind regards



Neill O’Reilly
