SNAP LOCKDOWN FURTHER INFORMATION:
Thank you for your support and flexibility as we transitioned to flexible and remote learning.
Last week’s after hours announcement posed some challenges for schools, however we had a fantastic response from our community, with many families collecting learning packs at late notice on Friday and on Monday morning. Our teachers have been extremely responsive, working late into the night last week to ensure packs were available as early as possible. I am also impressed with the resilience of our students, who have transitioned to online learning with a positive mindset and a productive attitude towards learning. I am proud of the way we, as a community, worked together to ensure our students’ learning was prioritised, despite increased impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Again, thank you.
You will have heard today’s announcement that the current lockdown will be extended until 11:59pm on Tuesday.
This means that we will continue to operate in Remote Learning, returning to onsite learning on Wednesday 28th July (depending on restrictions).
Daily learning plans for each class will continue to be uploaded to our website, with Webex meeting with teachers offered each morning.
The learning packs for LA2 and LA3 are equipped for the extended lockdown. Families from
LA1 have the opportunity to collect some more resources this Thursday (22nd July) from 1-4pm, or from 8:30-4pm on Friday. If you would like to collect resources and are unavailable during these timeframes, please contact the school’s office.
Thank you again for your continued support and please contact the school’s office if there is anything you need.
