Learning from home

Message from the Principal

Phase 0

Our focus at present is to keep our students learning, both in, and out of, the classroom. Teachers, in year and stage teams, are planning, preparing and trialling methods of delivering lesson content in an online environment. Learning through trial and improvement, we will build upon our knowledge and strive to improve our practice. Whilst at home, students will be involved with online and offline tasks to replicate the classroom environment. It is more important than ever for teachers and parents to embrace this challenge and work together to provide the very best possible learning environment for our children. This is the biggest pedagogical shift in education and we are learning through experience that technology has the capacity to revolutionise how learning can take place.  

This webpage is designed to assist parents and carers to support student success when learning from home. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher, in the first instance, if you have any questions or require assistance. We are all on this learning journey together, so stay positive, stay safe and stay connected.

Phase 1

To support the continuity of education for students and increase face-to-face teaching in NSW, a staged return to school model will be rolled out across Term 2. Please refer to the attached document ‘A managed return to school.’ From Week 3 students will attend school at least one day per week, increasing to two, then three throughout the term with all students returning hopefully by Term 3.

During each phase, parents will be encouraged to keep their children home except on their allocated day of face-to-face learning. Initially, about a quarter of the students will be on site at any one time. The specific days students will be required to attend school each week will be communicated to parents early in Week 2 of Term 2. Classes will be split to appropriately social distance students and teachers.  

The Department of Education is committed to ensuring students benefit from the school experience and a deeper engagement with their teachers and peers. The key is ensuring every student is known, valued and cared for in our school.

We will continue to work in partnership to ensure all children are engaged in their learning. If you are having any difficulites, please contact your child's teacher via the school email. 

Remember you are not alone in this. We are here for you and your child.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding during these unprecedented times.
