Dear Parents/Carers,

I want to thank you all for your support in what was one of the most unusual starts to a school term we have ever seen.  Together, we have been able to make the best of this situation and ensure your child’s safety and continuity of learning.

Today, the State Government announced changes to education based on a review of current arrangements and updated health advice. 

As of Monday, 18 May 2020 all students are expected to attend school, except for those students medically referred to learn from home.

This means students are either:

  • at school;
  • have a medical referral to learn from home; or
  • recorded as absent if they do not attend.

Over the last three weeks, we have seen 84% of our students return to school, which has been fantastic. 

Current health advice states that schools remain safe for staff and students and should remain open.  We want to make sure all children get the best education possible, which is why attending school is so important.  We are here to make sure all children are learning and there’s no doubt, schools are the best place for them to learn.

For parents with medical advice that their child should not attend school, we will work with you in partnership with the School of Special Educational Needs: Medical and Mental Health to support your child’s learning from home.  If you feel your child is in this category, please do not hesitate to contact me and we will work together on the next steps.

If your child does not attend school without a medical reason, they will be marked as absent and will not be provided with a learning program. 

The extra cleaning and hygiene practices implemented at the start of Term 2 will continue and as part of the social distancing measures, we continue to ask parents/carers to drop children at the school gates and not enter the school grounds. 

The State Government will continue to make decisions based on the best health advice. Thank you for your continued support as we move forward.

If you have any questions, please do contact the Office 9526 7100.

Kind regards,

Cherie Dobbs
Principal

Support Information

The unfolding situation around COVID-19 is creating a sense of uncertainty among Australians. Two in five (39%) feel extremely or very uncertain about the future since the recent outbreak of the virus, while another 52% feel somewhat or slightly uncertain.

In this context of change and uncertainty Australians are feeling anxious (45%), frustrated (37%) and vulnerable (29%). There is still a sense of optimism, however, with more than a quarter (27%) feeling hopeful.

While these uncertainties and dark days can cause justified anxiety and concern, it is also in these times that we see community and human connectedness shining brightly. In challenging times, we see the positive and resilient aspects of the Australian spirit as we come together to encourage and build each other up – even from a distance.*
