ONLINE LEARNING

Dear Parents and Carers

 

Today is the last day of Term 1, 2020. It has been a very challenging term for everyone as there has been a significant disruption to our teaching and learning programs.

The staff have worked this week to re-design their lesson planning so that students can effectively learn from home.

We shared with you on Tuesday, our timetable for children to follow. The teachers will put their lessons onto Connect for the students to work through.

The teachers will be assessing student performance. They will be collecting student work to mark and assess against the WA Curriculum Standards.

We will report on student progress at the end of Term 2. It is very important that students complete the assigned tasks every day and submit their work when requested.

We will be monitoring student attendance. Teachers will monitor that work is being completed and submitted. Families will be contacted where students are not engaging in the learning program. The Department of Education is encouraging parents to keep their children at home, however those who need to send their children to school to maintain employment, children of essential workers and those who require schools to support them to overcome particular vulnerabilities may choose to send their children to school. All students will be taught, those learning at home and those attending school.

The teaching staff will be at school during the school day and I encourage direct contact with teaching staff either through Connect or over the phone. To promote the active engagement of students, teachers will use discussion boards and blogs to check in with the students.

Please also remember that our Student Services staff are still available for students. This includes our Student Support Officers (Tracey Montgomery and Nick Dudley), our Aboriginal and Indigenous Education Officers (Nikita Aman and Victor Woodley), our Chaplain (Fifi ) our Nurse (Louise), our school psychologist (Andrew Olson) and our program coordinators (Julie Clarke, Brooke McFarlane and Robyn DeFraine). Please contact the school to access these resources.

If your children have any difficulties in logging on or completing their work, please contact the school.

The following list is our Heads of Learning Areas who can help with the teaching and learning.
