I must say that it is great to have our classrooms and playgrounds full of students again. For many, the novelty of learning from home had worn off, probably for both parents and students. Lots of our students are excited that they can catch up with their friends face to face again which says something for a generation that are supposed to be social media enthusiasts. There will be those who just need to come back to a familiar place to learn where they can be face to face with their teachers as opposed to relying on online communication.
Did you know that our teachers are also excited about settling back into teaching and learning in the classroom routine as well!
It is difficult to believe that the term is already half over, and while we have pushed back our Secondary exams (check the new timetables) wherever possible, assessments and exams are not far off so we will all have to work together to be ready when they do begin.
In a normal year I would have been sharing about our Annual Open Night, something about NAPLAN and a few other events that have been postponed or cancelled because of the restrictions associated with the COVID- 19 response, including those listed below:
18 June – Yr 9 The Next Step (Teamwork Event)
18 June – Yr 3-6 Interhouse Athletics
22 June – ASSA Netball / Volleyball Carnival
POSTPONED – until further notice.
3 June – Middle/Senior Athletics Carnival
11 June – Yr 8 Invictus (Network Event)
We look forward to rescheduling these exciting events.
Thank you for reading our newsletter.
