Dear Parents/Carers

Now that the Premier has suggested that parents who are not in ‘Essential Services’ employment keep their child/children at home following social distancing recommendations. We have compiled a list of resources to assist you in implementing remote learning from home for your child/ren. These resources are free to use and feature digital and non-digital activities to engage your child/ren whilst they are not attending school.

Teachers are currently refining work for students to use at home. Information will be sent either in hardcopy or digitally via google classrooms. Each stage are organising their own learning packs for their students. Communication with teachers will be via dojo communication, google classroom, Skoolbag and Facebook.
